My most loved analog vintage gear. My Yamaha U1. It was bought by my grandmother back in 1970s. My mum was practicing piano on it when she was a kid.
Since then has it been parked to a wall in my grandmother’s house for decades. I remember as a kid, we were not allowed to touch the piano. I inherited it after graduating from the Oslo National Academy of The Arts.
The piano is in perfect working condition. I decided to sample it before I got it tuned. I did sample it with 3-layers, all the white keys (52 samples).
I want you to check out my softest patch (1-layer) without felt, because it really brings out feelings (for me, and I hope you too) when playing it.
I used high quality microphones trough vintage preamps and high quality RME converters.

A lovely soft piano with a great dynamic range...
Well recorded and well programmed. This soft piano is definitely one to get and can easily cover a range of musical styles.
The perfect soft piano!
The sampling is amazing, there is absolutely no noise at all. It is shy, but it is also very dynamic. If this had a GUI with some settings, it would be a 5/5 no doubt. It really is, a perfect soft piano. The title should give it away, for more people to discover it!
It's title should be 'Soft Emotional Piano'
I really like it's gentle and emotive touch. The playing experience is really pleasant. I don't always feel like I'm playing a 'piano' but with this one I do. Good work
