The story

While clearing out my parents loft I discovered my old Tascam Portastudio, still in perfect working order. Trying to find a use for it, I sampled all 88 keys of my Yamaha U3 piano and pitched them up using the pitch speed knob. The result is a lo-fi rinky-dink piano sound familiar from 60s recordings like ‘In My Life’ by the Beatles ‘See Emily Play’ by Pink Floyd and pastiches like ‘Your Gold Dress’ by Dukes of Stratosphear.

  • Nice work but

    I realy like its sound. But maybe about 30ms of almost dead air at the samples starts are a little bit too much for the playability. You can solve that at the mix by offsetting the MIDI but it would be great to have a kind of choice in the GUI: with or without dead air.
    Actualy I've modified the instrument to shift the non-reversed samples start points with the MW (but without a knob in the GUI as I know almost nothing about Kontakt scripting :-) )
