Layers for Air Piano

Two instruments based on the Air Piano samples, a layered piano and a layered pad made with the same sounds that is sometimes reminiscent of a Korean string instrument.

The story

The other day I got excited about the Air Piano and all the mics and possible perspectives, so I decided to combine its sounds with my Layers Engine.

This engine wasn’t design for plucked/percussive instruments, but while playing with the different mics and mixes I thought it could be interesting to give it a try and see (and hear) what would happen if the Layers Engine were to pick every note mic/mix based on the speed, distance, dynamics… while performing some variations (a feature that makes “tempo aligned cyclical sound variations”).

So, this is not a piano recorded by me, but I think it’s an interesting addition to the Air Piano.

Layers for Air Piano (LAP) contains two instruments based on the Air Piano samples, a layered piano and a layered pad made with the same sounds that is sometimes reminiscent of a korean string instrument.

  • It saved Air Piano!

    This needs to be an official combo for the Air Piano, no joke. This is a great addon that makes Air Piano simply amazing. Well done!

  • Pretty cool concept

    This reminds me of how christian henson made a separate reverb tail patch for labs soft piano thats meant to be played along with it. This is the same idea and really gives new life and an interesting character to air piano. One thing i think is really cool about separating the reverb like this is that it gives it a kind of pre delay feel so it doesn't sound so glued to the original sound but more an effect. Really cool
