XPERIMENTA Due 1.9
FIRST PIANO: C7
Clean and versatile: an all-around piano, good for jazz and classical music.
SECOND PIANO: C3
Warm, smooth, intmate: perfect for cinematic music.
"Not all the pianos are the same"
the game of the resonance
We believe 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 recreated this interaction in two ways:
Overtones: We sampled the “overtones”, that are the harmonic resonances that the strings generate by sympathetic resonance, controlled by a special engine. 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.
“Formant” allows you to make the sound of the piano “bigger” or “smaller”, by changing the formant of the sound. It can be used both for shaping the sound and for creative purposes. On maximun/minimum values, you can create a slow-down effect (like in the demo) or a chipmonk tune.
Demo: Formant control set at -11
We sampled the pianos with multiple microphone positions.
- “Close”: the microphones are close to the strings, and the sound is modern and clean.
- “Player”: the microphones are in the same position of the player. The sound results incredibly natural and well balanced.
- “Room”: the microphones are far from the piano, so they will capture the reflection of the recording room. The sound is wide and it fits well with classical music.
Expand your possibilities: Due allows you to add a noise or an instrument layer to the sound of the piano. With this feature, is possible to create a felt-like piano (with a cotton layer) or a full sound preset (with a choir layer).
NOISE LAYERS: Cotton 2, Cotton 2, Cotton Soft, Paper, Sponge, Leaves, String Perc, Key, Metal, Plastic 1, Plastic 2, Warm Plastic, Glass, Bells 1, Bells 2
INSTRUMENT LAYERS: Bells, Kantele, Piano, Harmonics, Choir, Guitar, Glockenspiel, Vibraphone, E. Guitar
Demo with Layer Vibraphone:
“Oldify” is a collection of effects that allows you to simulate an old recording.
- Tape adds an harmonic distorsion to the sound
- Flutter simulates a fast modulation of the tape
- Wow simulates a slow and random modulation of the tape
- Filter is a band-pass filter: here you can easily simulate crappy speakers, like a phone-call.
Choose between 17 convolution reverb, and place your piano where you want!
IR Reverb: Room 1, Room 2, Large Room 1, Large Room 2, Large Room 3, Hall 1, Hall 2, Wood 1, Wood 2, Large Hall, Opera Hall, Parking 1, Parking 2, Church 1, Church 2, Arena, Spring
