The Quietest Piano

The Quietest Piano


Hi there!

Stayed at my parents place a little bit ago which coincided with the recent purchase of a Zoom H6. It was probably around midnight or later when I decided I wanted to sample the Winter upright piano again (See: The Loud Piano, a library I’ve already shared which is in essence the opposite of this one).

Naturally, since everyone was asleep I thought it would be nice to try and capture a different side of the instrument from before (and not wake anyone up), so I came in as close as possible with the built-in mics from the H6 and played each note as quietly and consistently as I could muster – 3 times for the luxury of round-robins.

Normally I’m a massive stickler for good velocity mapping, however this instrument at its core aims to explore the very bottom depths of this instrument’s dynamic range… so I’ll let it slide this time.

The name is describing how the piano is aiming to sound, played as quietly as physically possible, rather than describe its “status” among other pianos.


Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!

Nice! Thank you!

Hi Conner, again, a nice story and a good instrument! I can fully imagine me doing the same at midnight ๐Ÿ˜‰ … I changed the velocity response a bit, so it is a bit more versatile regarding the volume, but other than that its great and is as intimate as you would expect from your description.
