Meditate Piano

Flowing water-like sound mix with piano...

The story

This is my first contribution to the Pianobook community, I have been using pianobook from the initial days and am very thankful for its entire existence.
This is a Kontakt instrument of my workstation synthesizer called Roland XPS30. I recently sold this away, but just before letting it go, I had an idea to sample the patch which always used on it called Meditate Piano. The patch actually has 2 layers one is of a standard piano found in any workstation and the tail of flowing water-like sound. I recorded it using my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 in stereo with 3 velocity layers.

  • Interesting piano

    This sample pack is very playable, and the reverse echo coupled with water SFX is unique. I'm not in love with the basic piano sound, however, as it represents the sterility of samples that I come to PB to avoid. Even so, this sample pack is well recorded, very well edited, and is a great first contribution to PB. Hoping to see lots more from this samplist in the future!

  • Full of promise

    I like this one. Lots of sounds to play with. I have paid for piano libraries that are not as interesting as this one. It is a great inspirational tool, but it may not make it through to the final mix. I normally like to keep my piano sounds pure and clean.

  • Definitely worth the download!

    I'm not sure how much I'd end up using this over other piano libraries out there, purely because I would have control over the reverse delay myself. But its a great library nonetheless and one I'm sure someone in the PB community will find great use for! Full of character and well recorded, great job!

  • nice

    A great sound and a wonderful starting block for exploration. Whip into the editor, change the filter to Pro53, Replika to diffusion and increase the attack and release. Sublime.

  • Piano with a pulsing flowing effect

    An interesting effect created through layering a piano with a sort of water flowing sound. The piano is quite bright which I think impacts its ability to blend with the flowing sound however lowering the cutoff using the inbuilt control can help. The GUI is simple but provides the basics: reverb, delay, and cutoff. I'm sure I could find a little use for this instrument in an ambient or film track.
