Willis & Co 2

A moody Willis & Co upright from Montreal, Canada....

The story

Around eight months I purchased a piano for my home studio, the first piano I ever bought for myself. Although slightly out of tune after we moved apartments in Montreal in the winter (never a great idea), this piano has a very special character. It is very moody, to say the least. Since the moved I have actually not been able to re-tune it, something that has proven tougher during the current situation, but there is something strangely appealing about this sound. Not for everyone, I’m sure though.
As the name suggests, this is the second attempt of me sampling my piano. It is also very simple, with no dynamic layers but with two round robins per note. Also, the modwheel includes a little surprise!

  • Mellow and soft kind of pad

    I really like the sound of this library! Mellow and soft textured synth pad, control and reverb controllable. Nice to have library!

  • How to make a generic piano interesting!

    While the piano itself is not really that dynamic, the little surprise hidden in the modwheel is all that matters! Not only it lets the piano's character shine, but it also gives a nice twist with the perfect way to control it. Since it's indicated as a surprise, I won't spoil it. But it should be indicated as a text somewhere in the lonely wallpaper of the GUI that hosts nothing else. Also I don't like the wallpaper. It needs some color - the creator knows why!
