i know some people that have the aturia software..its indeed a sweet modular synth... i was thinking about getting it allready...
I would appreciate to see how your piano sound is done..there is defenetly something to leran about...not that i am too much in natural sound...but the quality of real piano sounds has something... Its still the best sound for composing, and still a domain for samplers...
its cool to synthezise that.

Ah, well for a while today, my musical sanity was hanging on by 3 slim cables which my friend soldered to the end of the headphone connector. It sounded great!

Now we are putting on the outer layers. Phew!

MOSC, thanks for setting up an Arturia section. Since there are no posts there yet I should post a bunch of MMV audio demos plus a massive MMV bug list to prevent people from buying the damn synth until Arturia fixes the damn thing.

I put the MMV acoustic piano patch in the G2 patches piano section for now.

would be cool to do a conversion if possible.
The aturia is tuned to sound like an anlog modular... it would probabbly sound pretty different in a straight g2 conversion... but it should be intersting anyway...

Thanks Ken, and it loads in the Demo version so I have some patching to do.

I should probably go back to the MMV patch and look for things I missed, but this is the basic idea.

I tried patching a 1/2 Octave EQ but it didn't work very well. So EQ is approximated.

Comes in at under 25% so you can get 32 voices on an expanded G2 if you use an external reverb.

How come ? I downloaded the demo, and the import/export of patches is disabled scratch

I downloaded the V2 demo when it was announced. It has an Open option on the File menu which happily loads Kens patch if it is saved to disk. Double clicking the patch starts the MMV2 program but it just crashes.

I think the product sounds good but I hate it's usability. Having to scroll by dragging on some unused panel space is a pain, knob positions are practically unreadable and those slow motion waving patch cords make me ill.
In the short time I could tolerate using the demo, I found a few bugs so I have not used it again till now.

PostPosted: Mon Jun 02, 2008 6:41 pm    Post subject: Another Acoustic Piano - Multimoog - Virtualizer Reply with quote  Mark this post and the followings unread

This is to add to the whole synthesizing acoustic pianos thread that was started a while back. For completeness I might as well post another synthesized acoustic piano MP3 of possible interest.

This acoustic piano was synthesized using a Multimoog mono synth and a $90 Behringer Virtualizer Pro digital multi-effects unit. Each synthesized note was sampled into an Emu E4K sampler so it could be played polyphonically in real-time. It's a bit hard to play for several reasons: I didn't add any envelopes to the sound, so when I lift off the keys the sound comes to an artificial and sudden stop, so I tried to cover that flaw with sustain pedal phrasing. The notes are kind of short in sustain because I was worried about running out of sampler memory. I only got about a 3 octave sample range out of the thing, so the lower notes are just the lowest multi-sample slowed down. It's a bit out of tune in places. None-the-less, it has an acoustic piano sound, unlike all the failed attempts I've heard from things like Tassman, String Studio, and others. Since I can hear good potential in this method, I'll try to patch up the technique in Reaktor where I have more control and don't need to sample and see if I can refine it into a very realistic and playable sound.

Note that in the demo below, you hear 3 short musical snippets. Since the Emu has the ability to tranpose/(slow down or speed up) the samples under the keys, I used 3 different shift values for different piano tones, going from a smaller brighter piano sound (the original sampled pitches) to the last one at -12 semitones, for a bigger, darker piano tone.
