Madeline’s Piano

A toy piano sampled with a Neumann U87 at several velocities per key....

The story

This toy piano belonged to my wife’s grandmother Madeline who was born in 1927. It is quite small and has only 10 keys, the black keys are just painted onto the white keys for the sake of appearance.

Originally it had legs, but they have long been lost. I sampled it using a Neumann U87 at several velocities per key. The patch also includes release samples. I hope you enjoy playing with it as much as she did.

  • Toy theatre gem.

    Very theatrical instrument, loads of character.

  • Celeste like quality and toy like

    Well captured sound of a toy piano with a celeste-like quality. Not too subtle but perfect for halloween inspired soundtracks.
