Man Makes Noise has announced the release of The Lobby Piano for Omnisphere 2.5, Man Makes Noise's first commercial release.
The Lobby Piano is an exploration into what a piano can be. A collection of sound design piano tones ranging from experimental playing styles to completely recharged sound explorations.
Man Makes Noises recorded sounds from a single piano (located in a lobby) with an assortment of orthodox and unorthodox methods and tools (a hammer and a keychain were involved among other items). Still this is not an effects piano nor a prepared piano. It's a designed piano.
The Lobby Piano contains 200 patches with 296 original sound-sources. The patches are divided into 13 categories that are easily identifiable within Omnisphere. The categories are: Alarms (7), Arps (22), Atmos (16), Basic Piano Tones (10), Bass (10), Designed (8), FX (10), Hits (8), Keys (43), Pads (35), Percussion (20), Pulses (6), Synth (5).
In addition to the Omnisphere 2.5 patches The Lobby Piano includes 20 Roomshaker sub booms in WAV format.
The introduction price for The Lobby Piano is 35€ (excluding VAT). The introduction price will be in effect until the end of February 2019. After that the full price will be 49€ (excluding VAT).
