When Flavio and the team decided to make this sample library, they had in mind to create something special, something unique, that could really keep the real essence of the acoustic piano. We combine the art of sampling and the art of scripting to make the best sampled piano we could, made for satisfying the most demanding composers and musicians.
 
XPERIMENTA Due is our new-philosophy piano library, containing two premium grand pianos recorded with unique detail.

 

The download will contain the XPERIMENTA Due – First Piano patch and samples, made from a C7 Gran Coda.

Pino (Giuseppe) Cangialosi is an Italian musician and composer, chamber music teacher at the Conservatory of Latina, Italy. When we asked him to improvise something for us, he was so excited about the project, and this is what he gift us: one of the most beautiful improvisation we’ve ever heard.

Here’s the XPERIEMENTA Founder Flavio Cangialosi playing the “Due Video theme” he composed for this project. The patch was created adding some noise, to give to the sound a warmer and cinematic sound.

A WALK THROUGH THE PIANOS

 

AUDIO DEMOS

 

1: PIANO ONE: C7

We recorded a C7 Gran Coda in a 107mq hall in Sibelius Academy (Helsinki) with 3 microphone settings.
Clean: The piano have a clean, a bit bright but smooth sound. Perfect for Jazz in “Close” setting, for soundtrack scoring in “Player”, and for classical music in “Room”.

2: PIANO TWO: C3

The second piano is a half-coda C3 Piano is a beautiful sounding room in the studios.
Smooth: The piano have a smooth and warm sound, perfect for Soundtrack music. The “Room” microphone position

"Not all the pianos are the same"

 
Every pianist knows that not all the pianos are the same. Each instrument can have a so different touch and color, and sometimes it is important to find the right piano for the right piece.
 
This is why we sampled two instruments so deeply: we wanted to give to our customers the freedom to choose between two different instruments, recorded both with the same philosophy.
 

the art of recording

After endless sessions of testing, we recorded the pianos using only top-end microphones and preamps in two beautiful-sounding room in Sibelius Academy Studios, Helsinki.

the art of scripting

To make this instrument, we decided to simulate the acoustic behaviour of the piano, with a combination of fine sampling of the mechanics (i.e. hammer and pedal noises) and a phisic-modeling philosophy of scripting.

the game of the resonance

We belive that a piano is not just a sum of its sounds: indeed, all the strings “interact” each other when played in a complex game. We wanted to recreate this interaction, in three way:

Overtones: We sampled the “overtones”, that are the harmonic resonance that the string generates by sympathetic resonance, and we mapped them in a way that they will play only when a releated note is pressed (i.e. a fifth, an octave). We also sampled the sound of the strings with the sustain pedal down.

Impulse Response: in collaboration with the Sibelius Academy Music Technology Department, we sampled the impulse response of the strings and the body of the C7.
