@Vimeo Player broken? Keep getting the error message that "the player is having trouble".

We produce sampled instruments with the aim of recreating the experience of playing the real instrument. In the sampling studio, it's that moment we strike the piano key that best tells the story of the instrument we're trying to capture. Between the moment the note is recorded to the instant it's delivered to you, we try to stay out of the way as much as possible.

My Mom always used to tell me that the good stuff in an apple was in the peel. The same is true for sound - those little details around the edges we are sometimes tempted to "clean up" are the details that really bring us closer to what the instrument is.

Coming in early January, 2017, version 1.1 will feature a simple user interface as an alternative for those who simply want to load presets without all the visual clutter of the full control panel.

Other improvements include:

  • key release sample layers now correctly follow mixer pan controls.
  • a handful of sustain samples have been tidied up - faint clicks removed.
  • smoother dynamics for the sustain layers for a more gradual increase in "bite" as velocity increases.
  • pedal noise layers now follow recent key velocity.

This last one's a bit subtle, but helps mimic the natural effect that dynamic playing has on pedal noises during an acoustic piano performance. Basically, when you pound the keys, you tend to stomp that sustain pedal. Likewise, quiet playing usually results in more gentle pedal action. While the pedal noise control on the GUI still calls the shots, quiet playing will result in an additional trim amount so your delicate playing will result in quieter pedal up/down sounds.
