Hey guys,
Today I was working on a song idea and I wanted a realistic sounding piano. I started messing around with some presets that I acquired from DJ-Nobody's "Raver's Package Part I-V" and tried layering a few of them on one another. I found that using two different presets, each copied once (so that there are two channels of each preset, giving you four channels total) and having the same midi file worked quite well. I then took the midi of each copied channel and moved it up an octave or so. The .flp is posted below as well as the .zip so you will have the presets. Classical 2 is a copy of Classical 1. Classical 4 is a copy of Classical 3. I hope it is not too disjointed (I am awful at organizing). I thought this was interesting and wanted to know what other good ways there are to make realistic piano sounds. The mp3 starts with a short blip that I made quickly, the rest of the mp3 is a midi from "Promenade-The Tuileries" by Mussorgsky. Obtained here http://www.piano-midi.de/muss.htm
