Absolute Piano Erard Upright
The Absolute Piano really exploit the virtual piano concept by adding specific and innovative possibilities. With its filters you can sculpt the piano timber and produce a large number a piano sounds from the same base. Everything is specifically designed to manipulate and play piano sounds.
Absolute Piano : Erard Upright. This was my own piano when I was leaving in Paris. I spent a significant time to tune it and record it during the year 2007 just before I move to Florida USA. It has been recorded every 2 notes, with 4 level of velocity. V4 introduce smooth crossface between each layer for a better transition between each velocity layer.
I like the common sound this piano deliver. Most upscale expensive pianos have a great sound, but very special and different from the piano people uses commonly. For me this sound is the real sound of a piano, the piano I learned to play with, the piano you can find at school or in people homes. Concert pianos have some magic, but will not trigger the same feeling as the one you play on your childhood piano...
That's what I wanted to achieve when I recorded this piano.
