Piano Sound on Prophet 12

Post by wcfadlard » Thu Jun 23, 2016 12:09 pm

Thought I might post this in case anyone was interested. I know it's now what the thing was designed for but it's fun to try and make even a remotely realistic piano sound on it! I based it on the guide on Steve Force Music found here: https://steveforcemusic.wordpress.com/2 ... -keyboard/

The trick is to set the decay really long on the VCA, but not the release and no sustain. Also I added a sine wave tuned right down low, and used an Aux Env to make it really short and percussive, which is like the action of the hammer. I'll post a sample, see what you think! I can upload the patch if anyone's interested, or wants to improve on it!

Here's a sample (excuse the playing):

Cheers,

Will

Sounds kind of like an e-piano suitcase sound. Great job man! :D

This brings me back to my days of classical music. What piece is this again?

Sorry for the late response! I thought I'd get notifications of replies...

It's Arietta by Grieg. And yes I'll share for sure! I'll find a way to post it...

Thanks all! :)

Hey, yes! Here it is. Sorry for the lateness!

Please let me know if you improve it! I know it's basic, but it's something. Also let me know if the file works!

Cheers!
