Jim Sanger’s Reviews

  • Natural Low

    Very natural double bass that has a good tight sound

    The Tono17 October 2021
  • Dirty boy

    As lofi as you get. Grungy and noisy but reacts well to a low pass and reverb. Try it in the lower register

  • Bass! How low can you go?

    Pretty low is the answer. Really useful instrument for low and sub sounds that's very tweakable. Some of the sounds are pretty nice higher up too.

  • That's Meyer, rhymes with choir!

    I'm sure Jon just made this because he's fed up of people pronouncing his name wrong but I'm glad he did. Very characterful with lots of variables

    The Meyer Choir17 October 2021
  • You Take The Low Rhodes

    I'm always looking for basses that don't get lost in a mix and this often does the trick. Nicely percussive and good for faster parts.

    Sparkletop Bass17 October 2021
  • Super simple deadened kit

    Great sounding little kit for smaller productions although its a little temperamental. I particularly like the snare sound

    Soft Drums17 October 2021
  • Random bleepiness

    Handy sounds either for inspiration or to add another layer to a track

    Sine + Delays17 October 2021
  • String Wizardry

    Hat's off to Marco the Musical Wizard for putting this together. Some lovely sounds especially the high longs that really benefit from some extra reverb. I've paid for a lot worse sounding libraries in the past

  • Sublime and beautiful, don't be scared

    Probably my favourite pianobook instrument. One of my favourite string sounds of any library I own. Simply stunning.

    Scary Flautando Violin17 October 2021
  • Bonkers

    A bizarre collection of noises. Not sure where I'd use it but very different. More of a sound design tool really.

    Putney Attack17 October 2021
  • Guitar Swarm

    Good sound for adding some movement, particularly nice in the lower registers. I recommend a high pass to get rid of some of the rumble

    Pointillism Guitar17 October 2021
  • So 80s makes me wish I could grow a mullet.

    Classic 80s sounding synth patch for a nice clean and mellow piano sound

    One after 96917 October 2021
  • Feedback without upsetting the neighbours

    Simple tool that's handy for adding some depth and discordance. I've used this blended with real guitar to add some life.

    Octave Feedback17 October 2021
  • Nostalgic and Melancholic

    A nice sounding muted piano but its the atmospheric delayed effects that make this something special. Play a few notes with the sustain pedal down, start twiddling knobs on the GUI and you have a track

    November Piano17 October 2021
  • Crystal Clear Loveliness

    A superb collection of sounds in a very professional library. Clean hits, pads and movement. Lots of great presets that sound great out the box

    Niue17 October 2021
  • Not just a dulcimer

    The plucked dulcimer itself is a nice enough sound although not the cleanest with the notes cutting out before they fade. There are however lots of great organic textured pads that could work in a variety of different situations.

    Mountain Dulcimer16 October 2021
  • Pick Your Own Sherlock Score

    I'm sure you'd pay good money for something of this quality. I've not had the chance to use it on any projects but its one of those I know I have in the locker if I ever got the call for a Victorian Detective series.

  • Atmospheric Dusty Old Synth

    I love the sound of this and the demo I did for it is one of my most liked tracks as well as inspiring singer Nic Evennett to write a song around it. Really inspiring and great sound but use the low pass to tame some of the hiss. Bit of a one trick pony but what a trick.

    Lullaby16 October 2021
  • Lo-fi Choral Beauty

    Very useable lo-fi choral sound that's quite transcendent. I'd love to hear a cleaner less distorted version but it's a beautiful sound none the less

    lofi Audio – C-90ir16 October 2021
  • Olafur watch your back

    A lovely sounding piano but the cascading ripple effects are what make this special. You can achieve a sound similar to Olafur Arnald's stratus with very little effort and lots of control.

  • My Favourite Piano!

    This is a real hidden gem although its not perfect. I have umpteen pianos I've paid for but this is probably my favourite although there are several inconsistencies and little glitches. I've opened up kontakt and altered some of the note levels and the responsiveness to improve things. If I ever find the time I'll do it properly and share the results here.

    Kemble Piano17 October 2021
  • A Pandora's box of Americana

    I can't recommend this collection of amazing sounds highly enough. You could score an entire film or series with these beautiful textured pads. Top notch work from Joshua.

    Joshua’s Hybrids16 October 2021
  • Heavenly piano shimmers

    Very simple but extremely beautiful and original instrument. I'm itching to find a film score I could use it on

    Southsea Glimmer16 October 2021
  • Beautiful but glitchy

    One of the best sounding pianos on the site but very glitchy. Its not very playable but for very slow pieces you can get a rich and very upfront sound.

    Hyundai U85217 October 2021
  • Instant Inspiration

    This is remarkable, one of the best pianobook instruments I've tried. I wrote a production track within ten minutes of trying it out. Just get it

    Harmonic Flights16 October 2021
  • The Good The Pad and The Ugly

    A good organ like sound. A pure pad thats highly useable and the ugly being no GUI.

    Glistening Rhapsody17 October 2021
  • Warm and Bright

    Its a beautiful sound as you'd expect from Jon with a lot of variables. My only criticism is some notes are unexpectedly quiet when circling through the round robins so I bounce the track down to avoid any unexpected dropouts.

    Gentle Vibes16 October 2021
  • Hours of Synth fun

    There is so much packed into this instrument you're bound to find something you like. Loads of controls including a rhythm engine. I've not used it on any productions yet but I could happily spend a rainy Sunday just playing with it.

    Flow-Fi16 October 2021
  • Familiar Sounding Upright

    We get so used to perfectly sounding pianos this is quite refreshing. Its not perfect but its a more real and recognisable sound that would sit well in smaller productions.

    Family Piano17 October 2021
  • Useful Guitar Swells

    I'm a guitarist with a fancy sustaining pedal but I've found myself reaching for this to save time. Quite a variety of frequencies on the GUI for getting that Daniel Lanois type of sound.

    Echoes16 October 2021
  • Its an ebowed piano!

    Really inspiring and original sound that evolves and moves. I've used it on loads of tracks to add atmosphere and movement without sticking out. Can get noisy when holding down notes but I kind of like that effect. I tend to map a low pass filter to the mod wheel

    Ebow Piano17 October 2021
  • Systems cello

    The repeated bowing is great for building notes in a Steve Reich/ Jonny Greenwood kind of way to make a moving systems type of sound. Really well recorded

    Solo Cello Spurs16 October 2021
  • Inspiring and simple

    Probably my favourite of Dan's contributions. Simple but with lots going on in a really subtle way.

  • Lo-fi noisy and dirty

    Very wobbly and glitchy lo-fi kind of sound. I love it

    Dictaphone Loop Synth16 October 2021
  • Eno called, he wants his pad back

    A very simple and pure pad. Has a clean synth like sound but with s lightly organic quality about it. Very Eno. Typically classy from Bunker sounds.

    Dan Bau Pad16 October 2021
  • Dark and Inspiring

    Perfect for minimalist pieces or for adding wobbly echoes to an existing piano

    The ‘Cool’ Piano16 October 2021
  • Beautiful and Pure

    Superbly recorded and a beautiful sound. I like how dry it is so you can either drench it in splosh or use it as is. Highly playable

    Closet Harp16 October 2021
  • As intimate as it gets

    This sounds so close I feel I should have taken Dave out for a drink before playing this. Best with headphones on

    Claustrophobic Piano16 October 2021
  • Instant wobble

    I have a habit of sticking a lot of sounds through tape emulators but this saves me the bother.

    Tape Delay Experiment15 October 2021
  • My go to celeste

    Sounds gorgeous and I use it all the time. Really responsive and not much on the GUI but it doesn't need any tweaking

    Celesta Incogni15 October 2021
  • Who thought banging on a box could sound so great.

    Great GUI with loads of control options and different sounds. My percussion skills are pretty terrible but I can get this to work for me

    Cajon17 October 2021
  • Beautifully Dark

    Beautiful and menacing at the same time, perfect pad for dark dramas or subtle horror I'm still waiting for the right project to use this but it sounds superb.

    Boars Hill Gate Post15 October 2021
  • Shut your eyes and you're in an Icelandic church with Sigur Ros

    Great authentic sound and well recorded.

    Ash’s Harmonium17 October 2021
  • Like a dirty celeste

    This is a go to instrument for me, Great for adding notes to the higher register as it seems to sit in a track without sticking out.

    Amplified Music Box15 October 2021
  • Ambience with some depth

    Another great one from Joshua. Great for sitting underneath other tracks or for interesting ambience. I like adding a controllable low pass filter to this one

    Americana Granular Pad15 October 2021
  • Ripples of Loveliness

    Typically classy from Joshua. Great for adding some movement. Worth opening up Kontakt and playing with the settings to suit the track

    Ambient Guitar Tremors17 October 2021
  • Sounds like the real thing

    I really like this one, its almost like a harmonium in character. Great as a more organic option instead of a synth

  • Old fashioned upright

    This reminds me of the first piano I ever played as a child at my aunties house. Loads of character and not perfect but sometimes imperfection is exactly what's called for

    1911 Bechstein Upright15 October 2021
  • Does it even need a review?

    Simply one of the best instruments on here. Made many of us think who's this Jon Meyer bloke? Truly inspiring
