Grand Piano Sampled With Fingers On The Strings

Paper Stone Instruments releases Palm Mute Piano for Kontakt      20/05/13

Paper Stone Instruments tell us that their Palm Mute Piano is a unique Kontakt instrument created by meticulously sampling a Grand Piano using finger dampening to create what is essentially a brand new instrument. They say that the Piano has been sampled in 3 individual articulations to create the widest range of tones possible, staccato, sustained, and the epic sounding pedalled. The recordings have also been made using 3 microphone positions which can be individually controlled and blended to maximise the range of obtainable sounds and effects.

A spokesperson told us, "Palm Mute Piano was recorded in Studio 2 of Paper Stone Studios in Nottingham, UK, a converted cinema auditorium dating back to 1914 with incredible acoustics. This combined with with a class A signal chain has given the PMP a beautifully captured rich and characterful sound all of its own."

The following recording equipment was used: > Close - C414 B-ULS, API 3124MB preamp, Prism converters. > Stereo - Neumann KM184 pair, Focusrite IS > Room - Pair of Neumann U87 AI, API 3142MB preamp, Prism converters.



Paper Stone Instruments have also released German Log Drum and The Clap Kontakt instruments.
