The first being to ask for donations.
So this second step is to start a small merchandise section where there will be some different things but first of all there will be some sample packs. The first one is a piano that sounds... let me put it like this it has a lot of character. The last two summers have spent some time with friends and families up north in Spain in the house we have been staying at they have a piano that sounds so out of tune that it is hard to imagine how out of tune it is. Okay in the sample pack I have tuned it so it can fit with music being made and the recording is made with a very good field recorder.
My idea from the beginning was not to use it for a sample pack but to use it in a piece of music that will be written for a short film, having the music start with a clean good sounding piano but slowly switching the notes out to more and more degraded piano sounds. Having listened to it and starting to work with the sounds thought that it is so frequency rich and interesting with warts and all that it can be useful for all sorts of sonic adventures that I decided to do a series of instruments based on these same samples. Not only to see how far you can take the sound but also to in the end have a series of instruments coming from the same source. Wanting to find out how well they would gel together when they are used in combinations in the same piece of music.Have the second sample instrument almost ready and think that it is already a fascinating start.
The range is 4 octaves of separate samples starting at the E note to four octave up at D# in 24 bit 44.1 hz.
If you are interested in buying this sample instrument including already made instruments for SunVox and Caustic and the single shot samples please specify Rusty piano in the Pay pal order and you can use the buy button for PayPal on the side of the website.
Asking only donation for this excellently, ugly and interesting piano.
Plus your email address and I will send you a download link. Will never ever use your email for anything else!!!
So please donate something so my daughter get more to eat than an old banana this christmas!
And not only saving my daughter from starvation but also get a piano to play with!
There is a video I made with a short piece of music to it so you can get and idea...
If the video is loading badly (it is in high definition) there is also just the soundfile.
Otherwise it is an interesting mixture of sources...
Caustic 3 as the main application:
Modular synth, 8 Bit synth and the sampler that was loaded with recordings / instrument from of course the piano, my girlfriend going ahhhhh, Burroughs saying twilights last gleaming and the two Android instruments, Droiditar and one of these horrible publicity laden apps that sucks except that I love the artificiality and organic vibe in this one- Choir piano.
