Lo-Fi Felted Linden

Felted Linden recorded with an SM58...

The story

I created this library by sampling my parents upright Linden piano. It’s not a very good piano and it’s a bit out of tune but the sound is still nice.

I recorded the sound with an SM58 suspended above the semi-open case.I moved the microphone in front of each strings played to get a sound as direct as possible. There is still a lot of noise and the result is quite lo-fi, but it is still playable and fun.

  • Noise doesn't automatically mean Lo-Fi

    Sorry in advance, but I am going to be very harsh on this one. This piano is way too noisy, and the noise is inconsistent. If the creator wanted indeed to create a lo-fi piano, this is not the proper way to do it. The lo-fi noise is supposed to consistent by being on top of all the samples. Right now it is integrated inside the samples, and this make it very inconsistent when playing it, since the volume of the noise goes up and down depending on what is being played. My assumption is that the smaples turned out to be very noisy and the creator just called it lo-fi. I could be wrong, but that's my take.

  • Entry level felted piano

    I do like the bright felted tone up high and the gentle warmth down low, though it would benefit from a little denoising and more velocity layers. Usable but not great.
