  • Unique sound, fun to play with!

    Very interesting! Without reverb, it sounds like a short synth sound, but with reverb on, it will transform into a unique instrument - something like rain drop at high keys and tunnel echo at low keys.

  • You asked for a loquacious review...

    Like the buff stop on a harpsichord, this palm muted piano condenses the piano's tone into a succinct and delicious bite-sized nibbles which tickle and enliven our aural palate into a delightful awakening. Akin to Mr. Henson's other creations, the dulcet tones of this musical cookery are initially reticent to bloom fully after the depression of yonder keys due to Mr. Henson's insistence on the inclusion of the earliest part of each waveform, although my heart desires a more immediate satisfaction of my listening expectations. Still, these minor annoyances will not prevent me from reveling in depths of beauteous tone and handsome and alluring delights issuing from my speakers whilst I am playing.

  • A Pizzicato Piano???

    This is really a pizzicato style piano! The recording is awesome, and it plays really well, with good dynamics too! My only problem lies in the panning, as I can hear that the note fundamentals are not really well spread like a normal piano would be.

    Pizzicato Piano. I am another voice in the swarm, this seems to be about as close as you can get to a sound like that, and I live for it. This has to be one of my favorite libraries you've shared, Christian, it is so unique and playable and fun. I've hidden this among swarms of other pianos in song and there are moments where this is just about the perfect sound to poke it's head out and delight the listener's ear. If you were to have any of your more experimental piano sets to make it as a full spitfire release this would be one of the first I'd want to see. Thanks a bunch!

  • Almost a string pizzicato library...

    In all honesty, you could probably pass these sounds off as a string section play a pizzicato articulation. I actually doubled some string libraries with this sound and it added a really unique and interesting texture, so perhaps that's the best use for this instrument. Really creative and new sound!
