Spring Piano

Christian's Schimmel upright with three mic sets...

The story

As seen on the YouTube channel, my Schimmel recorded with three mic signals – 2 x M149a, One Soyuz Mono Mic and a Sontronics Apollo 2 stereo ribbon.

  • Clear and bright, excellent sound!

    A very clear and bright sounded piano library. Velocity and volume, all are balanced and playability is great. Another nice piano to add to the collection!

  • This will put a spring in your step!

    The inclusion of Mic levels in this instrument are a brilliant addition. As a Sontronics user I can attest to their brilliance and the Apollo sounds amazing here. The low end of the piano feels a little noisy, but the mid to upper register is a thing of beauty! Like some of Christian's other piano libraries on PB the release triggers are quite heavy and loud but as always you have the option to attenuate them to a desired volume.

  • Wonderful sound overall!

    This seems that it has been sampled really well, with a nice intimate sound and just a little bit of noise that can be mostly turned of if you turn the volume of the release samples. There are 3 mics offered and the GUI does a good job telling you about them. The worst part about this instrument is that low velocity sounds like turned down normal velocity, which doesn't seem proper for more quiet, smoother playstyles. Other than that, it's a fantastic instrument!

  • An piano

    It's a piano that does the job well. The recording is excellent and intimate. However, when it comes down to it's hard to decide between this and the other excellent recordings of Christian's Schimmel.

  • Beautifully captured timbre

    Feels like you're in the room with the instrument. Beautiful low end richness of tone. I love the timbre of this piano. A worthy candidate for soundtrack music.
