An amazing sounding, one of a kind "acoustic" piano made by spurting bursts of controlled noise through unsuspecting piano samples.
Plastic Ghost Piano is a warm, richly sampled, analogue sounding hybrid piano with some real character and lots of sonic possibilities. There really is nothing else like her. Sounds range from warm, woody and expressive acoustic piano to blissed out orchestral haze.
There are 6 unlikely sound components that make this possible.....
The Plastic Piano is a multisampled piano patch I made on a Techinics WSA1 modelling keyboard . Each individual sampled note was then loaded into a convolution reverb plug in and blasted with varying levels of controlled white noise and the output recorded and remapped as a 6 velocity layer multisample.
The White Piano is a 4 velocity multisample of a Hohner Pianet T electric piano.
The Pale Ghost is made from recordings of a broken upright piano convolved in the same way as the Plastic piano. There are 23 layers of velocity but using the Time Machine engine of Kontakt these layers are stretched over the entire keyboard range (co to c7) which adds strange and unexpected artifacts to the sound.
The Dark Ghost works in a similar way to the Pale Ghost but with a different set of broken piano samples and 2 sets of 10 velocity layers.
The Rubber Piano is actually a multisampled palm muted Fender Stratocaster recorded through a valve combo. It is there to add a slight percussive element to the sound if needed.
The release layer is another convolved piano and acts as an adjustable note off thump.
FULL version of Kontakt 4 or above needed.
Plastic Ghost Piano will load into Player but time out after 10 minutes, so please don't buy this if you are using Kontakt Player.
