Westwood Instruments – Upright Felt Piano (KONTAKT)

We tried the piano within the crypt church buildings. The instrument has been there for the previous 10 years because the well-known band recorded all of their albums on this unbelievable place. The area consists of stone partitions and vaulted ceilings, offering some attention-grabbing acoustics.

We wished to tame the intense sound of the piano, so we felt the strings in our personal method to take away the highest, however to not lose any of its distinctive properties. What we have now left is a stupendous heat and intimate sound.

We used a world-class first-class sign path, recording the whole lot at 96 kHz by way of the legendary Neve 1073 preamplifiers and Burr Brown AD converters.

The sign started with an acceptable pair of Coles 4038, which had been as shut as we dared to carry them to the hammers to get a extremely detailed sound. The AKG 414 stereo pair did a fantastic job recording sound in a extra open room. We additionally used one SE-2 subsequent to the rear deck. This microphone place gives a really classic sound.
