Harp Piano

A palm muted piano from London recorded with two U-87s in stereo and a Coles in the center.

The story

This Piano was recorded at Goldsmith Music Studios, London where a study a part-time masters course. The tone conveys a palm muted technique, that is lightly applied in order to allow the piano strings to resonate- causing a harp-like timbre.

Recorded with two U-87s (Stereo) and a Coles (Ribbon) placed in the centre.

  • Simple and clear, easy to use harp sound

    Clearly captured, simple sound of harp. It is ribbon/stereo/room controllable and it gives a nice room ambience when it is on. I get nostalgic hearing the sound :

  • A fantastic take on a Piano!

    Even though it's not as dynamic as a typical piano instrument, this offers a very nice and unique perspective, and with a very interesting sound as well. It might be a little noisy in some cases, noticed more in the higher register, but still it's quite enjoyable to play and it's totally worth your interest!

  • Great stuff as always from Angus

    Once again Angus has given us an amazing instrument. Simple idea and well recorded, this library will provide you with a muted-plucked piano sound with options over the mic/room controls. I thought some samples sounded a little noisy at first but realised this is actually the some of the strings just resonating slightly different to others. The result humanises this instrument. Nice work!

  • Palm Mutes to your Heart

    This beautiful library is transportation to a new realm of sonic exploration! There are a few zones which have kind of "Squishy" attacks on one of the round robins --E3 is an example, and others like B3 where a bit of buzzing crept in, but overall, I found this library playable and satisfyingly pleasant. I'm anticipating pairing it with my favorite delay. Even just experiencing it with the default reverb, it's a gratifying sound!

  • Quite unique sound

    My ears are bamboozled by this instrument, for me it sounds like a fusion between a harp and pizz strings. Really different and unique!
