    How can I create this piano sound ?

    It's sound that pops up in tracks and sample libraries from time to time. It's often called frozen or icy ..... It sounds like there is some stretching and pitching going on ?

    Dry Piano VSTs

    Hello. After investing in several piano VSTs I have come to the conclusion that I prefer those which provide the option of drier samples / sounds. Vienna Imperial and Pianoteq 7 Standard with reverb disabled seem to do the trick. The samples in Ivory II American Concert D, although not...

    Instrumental Love Song for Clarinet and Piano

    Ageing brings wisdom, the building of inner strength and the collection of beautiful memories. Like thumbing through old photographs, "I Remember" is touching and reflective. The long, soaring melody of the clarinet and the steadfast rhythm of the piano present a nostalgic performance...

    How would you create this kind of Pad sound?

    I have found a pad sound that I like, and would like some experts (or aspiring experts) to suggest what VST instruments and effects could reproduce such a sound. So besides the obvious things that it's a piano VST or keyboard voicing, with a strings pad underneath, exactly how would I produce...

    Can someone help me render this piano midi on better piano libraries?

    Hi, I am considering buying a great piano vst library. I currently own Gentle Keys by Splash Sound. I purchased it for $58 and it has a nice dreamy tone with an optional smooth synthetic strings layer, but the dynamics are a bit small since it's sampled from an upright piano and is less than 1...

    UVI Austrian Grand | Romantic Piano preset

    I've had an iOS app from UVI for sometime, but recently got their synths and now the Austrian Grand. It's an interesting piano. I haven't spent a whole lot of time with it but I noticed stock presets with default settings don't really do justice to the library. Once you tweak the settings a bit...

    Looking for 88-key controller to approximate the action on an Yamaha S90-ES

    Hey, so I'm going to be moving across the pond (to EU) and won't be taking my beloved Yamaha S90ES with me. Will be looking for a great 88-key MIDI controller to buy. Obviously, the S90 had onboard sounds, which made it fun to just play when I'm not on my computer, but that is not essential...

    When my wife stopped playing with me, I re-scored it. (ahem)

    I wrote this piece originally for clarinet and accordion, recorded as part of my duo, Acclarion's CD, "Shattered Expectations." We played it for years in concert, until one day, my wife suddenly says, "I'm not playing it with you anymore, because I'm pregnant." :) (damn, click bait bastard!)...

    I've owned Noire for ages, but for some reason never really used it. It was fun just to play around with when it came out, but I always preferred (and probably still do) C. Bechstein's Digital Grand. Never cared for the Particles Engine and it always had too much sub in the lower range, while...

    I couldn't sleep...So I wrote this

    The other night I was tossing and turning and had this idea in my head, so I decided to record it. I'm still debating whether to keep it as a solo piano or add some strings as well to change up the colour. Also think I might have milked the ending a bit. Curious what everyone thinks.

    Two different Piano VIs for Concerto for 2 Pianos?

    I wonder if it is best to use two different piano libraries when mocking up a piano concerto for two pianos? Obviously I would choose a very similar sounding piano (e.h. Steinway model D). Using the same VI on the second piano track feel a bit weird (perhaps phasing, or just too much same...
