Rain Piano sfzED - Caracter Upright Piano

The Rain Piano was recorded after some extensive Tom Waits listening. Specially the ”Mule Variation” album, (great stuff!). I fell in love with the piano sound on that record and decided to make something in that line.

After long discussions with our piano technician:

Me: ”I want the piano to sound like it’s been out in the rain for a few days”

Piano Tech Guy: ”?????????”

We got a concept worked out where we set up the piano so that it would produce a lot more overtones but still be working with other, properly tuned, instruments. It became a kind of a synonym for character pianos. It has been used, and is still used on countless productions where you want something that adds a different flavor rather then using a ”normal” piano.
