[share] eno-esque piano patch
Mar 09 2012 | 10:24 am
here is my new patch that plays back piano sounds. http://ondomusic.com/mesa.elech.tele/__for_you_to.zip piano samples are included so that zip file is a bit bigger than usual.
win and mac versions of the build are also included. __for_you_to.mxt is the original and editable patch. (it's an old format but shouldn't have a problem with Max6)
here are some examples: http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/snd30_01.mp3 http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/snd30_02.mp3 http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/snd30_03.mp3
how to use: when you launch, you get a mixer screen with reverb and delay. you select a "score" from the red top selection. (there are six "score"s which are .mxt files in the _lcds folder.) the operations are done mostly by dragging your mouse over the blank field. the direction of the dragging will effect the outcome. there are 7 voices from which you select at the bottom of the score.
you can select multiple scores simultaneously but it might increase the chance of crash.
you can change the tuning of the piano or select tuning presets from the list at the left top. if you click soundcheck on the right top you will get old fashioned DSP Status.
piano sounds are recorded using bosendorfer mini grand played by me.
this patch was actually made for a production of a commercial cd, but the project was rejected and shelved by the label... so i thought it might just worth some to post the patch here. this is an example how the cd might have ended up to be. http://ondomusic.com/uhitokiyosue/ (you need firefox or chrome to hear the sound)
i was going to write some detailed instructions, but after a few demos on friends i realized that they enjoyed the mystery solving process of each score more than me revealing all the secrets out. so i hope you enjoy the same process.
all the piano samples and the content of the patch are in public domain. if you like any portion of them, please feel free to copy, modify, or use to your advantage.
questions and comments are welcome.
