To get you in the mood...


AVAILABLE HERE


Sampled right here at Casa del @chillbot is the heart of the library - a Yamaha C3 grand piano. Initially sampled as a personal experiment back in 2019, we captured a range of standard and extended techniques including the 'normal' way of playing a piano, sampled octaves, blooming harmonics, the use of pencils and dulcimer hammers, as well as muted strings, and more.

The result is an impressively versatile library, largely thanks to the multi-layer articulation approach, our unique "Padify" engines, and the depth of tweakability each individual layer offers.

However, as fun as the tweaking is, we understand that not everyone enjoys it as much as we do (yet), so we've included over 50 snapshot presets to get you going.

Just for 100% transparency and so that no one is confused or mistaken or unintentionally misled by our past endeavors, this project is NOT for charity. Even though the frogs from our last video make an occasional cameo. Any froggy purchase from botdog will continue to benefit ETM:LA.

Frogs = yes, piano = no.

But don’t worry I’ve donated more to ETM:LA in the last year than this project will ever make. I still strongly encourage you to support ETM:LA in any way you can, as well as my other favorite musical do-gooder, Mr. Holland's Opus.

I have more piano and treated/extended-piano libraries than I can count, but who can resist the Botdog? Bought and downloading—happy to support fellow VI-Controllers. This will be on a new track tomorrow! Also, it sounds great. Well done, guys, dogs and frogs.

I am hearing a detuned like piano. Is that tape saturation?

lots of cool sounds.
Thanks Craig. The detuned effect comes from the "Woozy-ness" controls (shown in the GUI screenshot above). Can control the depth and rate independently for each layer/articulation.
A neat 'hack' is to layer one woozy piano articulation on top of another non-woozy piano layer for a honky-tonk-ish effect.
There is also a separate Tape Saturation effect in the global settings.

Awesome! And the demo A New Man - NAKED (by Paul Michael Cardon) is (imho) movie ready. Very evocative for a quest or search, for humble exploits, sounds like it acts as a character... But what do I know... :)

Al the best!
