I sampled this piano super later one night at my university to help me underscore a cartoon. Each note is sneaky-staccato with a unique preparation.
Preparations ranged from simple stuff like blu tack under the hammers, to muting strings with my hand. The idea is each note is different and a little surprising!

Mix tip: Try degrading the sound with Izotope Vinyl or Klevgränd's FreeAmp, before sending the signal into a medium room reverb...

Special thanks to Simon Dalzell from ivyaudio.com, who was kind enough to advice me throughout the process of writing the KSP script!

Note: this is a much improved version of Prepared Staccato Cartoon Piano
