Christian's piano sampled with a Shure SM57....

  • Ambient, soft toned piano library

    The sound is soft, but the character is deep. It captures the warmth of this piano and I really like the ambience of the sound. Not sure this is due to the lower cost microphone, but I think it is beautifully sampled.

  • A kindly percussive piano

    This is a very warm and wholesome piano sound, very fun to play with. It features a somehow percussive attack, and release triggers that unfortunately are kind of loud, which can produce the following problem: If you try to play one note after the other, the sound of the next becomes slightly boomy - not suggested for playing with headphones, as it can be physically irritating to the ear.
