Family Piano Pads

A spectrally altered version of Stephen Tallamy's Family Piano instrument....

The story

Three pad instruments created from the “Family Piano” by Stephen Tallamy.

The starting point of these instruments is Christian’s video « How To Make Your Own Pads (with Pianos) » and more especially the pinned comment about Michael Norris Soundmagic Spectral plugins. I lost almost one day playing around with the Spectral Drone Maker, so I decided to make it useful by creating some Pads.

Different sonic tortures was applied to Stephen’s superb instrument, including spectral stretching, spectral blurring, reverbs and delays, pitching up and down.

At the end, three quite different pads with subtle evolutions in it.

  • Nice Pads!

    Fred has created some great pad sounds here, the movement within the sound adds real character to your music, whilst remaining really playable.

  • Just beautiful. Very easy to blend with any instrument

    Just beautiful. This will be my another favorite pads going forward. I really like all the library from Fred, such a talent!

  • Exceptionally made, multi faceted pad sound

    Really pro sounding pad sound. Lovely attention to detail in the GUI offering varying amounts of pad timbres. It just sounds so good. Sometimes like a voice, sometimes like strings, sometimes like brass... I love it.
