Toy Grand Piano

Toy Grand Piano


A few years ago my kids were gifted a toy piano for Christmas, and at this point I’ve probably spent more time playing it than they have. I enjoy the way it rings out and the mechanical sounds of pressing each key.

I recently became interested in learning to script in Kontakt, and I thought this was a good project to start with. I wanted to capture the raw, imperfect quality of the instrument while also providing a way to quickly manipulate the sound. I created six modules where you can control release samples, pitch shift, filters, chorus, delay, and reverb. For instance, pitching the notes an octave down, adding some low pass filtering, chorus and reverb quickly creates a cinematic feel.

I recorded three round robins in three dynamic levels, and three round robins for the releases in two dynamic levels.
