Metallic sound with a "Je ne sais quoi"
I really enjoy that sound, but I can't put my finger on why. Maybe it is the Gamelan feel to it, the rich tones in both low and high ranges, the playabilty... It has this magic and mysterious feeling.
This Toilet Lid Drone isn't Poop! Sorry
One of the most unexepected sound on Pianobook. I remember downloading it in order to convert it to DecentSampler, I was like "Uhh Toilet Lid? Ok, sure, why not?" and then was very surprised by the tonal quality of it. Add some dark and long reverb to it and you have the perfect sound for a distant creepy pad. Test it, and you won't go to the toilet alone at night anymore...
Incredible and unique sound!
One of the most unique sound on Pianobook. Creepy, dark and haunting, I used this sound on several projects, it worked every time! Bravo.
Beautiful evolving piano texture
This instrument changed the way I see sample instruments. Sometimes all you need to create a unique and inspiring soundscape is ONE sample. I love to play a couple of notes, hit the sustain pedal, and let the magic happen.
My go-to Grand Piano
This instrument encapsulates everything I love about a warm Grand Piano sound. When I play this Steinway Grand, I feel I'm a better pianist than I really am. Great work Jon!
Quite unique sound
My ears are bamboozled by this instrument, for me it sounds like a fusion between a harp and pizz strings. Really different and unique!
Warm and unperfect sound
This may be the most "Pianobook" piano for me: A lot of character, a bit of noise, a pleasure to play. The noise layers are great to improve realism. Tip: you can even keep only these layers and play them with another piano to add some mechanical noises to a clean piano!
Help! my head is stuck!
I have never put my head inside a piano, but this sounds and feels like it. Top notch samples!
