Unbelievably good service from every team I spoke to, from the guitar shop to sales and processing. Super fast delivery.

Beginnings

 

Electronic keyboards have been around for decades now, and many early models were equipped with sounds labelled ‘piano’. However, most made a mockery of the true sound of a piano, and could not be considered as serious alternatives to the real thing.

This can be used for many functions, including ducking (compressing a music signal when a DJ or announcer speaks), synchronised gating, and (in conjunction with an equaliser) de-essing.

Sample1) In digital audio, a sample is numerical representation of amplitude at a single point in time. Thousands of samples are taken every second, corresponding to the sample rate, and stored as binary numbers. The analogue waveform is recreated by passing the samples back through a digital-to-analogue (D/A) converter. 2) A digital recording of an instrument sound, percussive hit, loop or sound effect, used in music production.

pianos can sound convincing and play well - often better than real pianos of an equivalent price. They also typically offer more than one type of piano sound, so you can select one to suit the mood - a grand piano for some introspective noodling, a bright upright for a good old sing-song.

Whatever your preference, sampling technology has made it possible for most of us to afford a good sounding piano, and to keep one in even a small apartment.

pianos may not become collector’s items, but they are helping people of every age and ability to make music.
