O.D.D. Grand Piano

O.D.D. is a fresh take on the "same old" piano sounds.
  1. We deliberately chose to sample the piano with full detail (11 dynamic levels) but stop before the “ff” dynamic, to have a piano with a warm and intimate sound.
  2. We chose a very good sounding Yamaha C6.
  3. We chose and carefully placed no less than 29 microphones around the piano in order to achieve many different sound signatures.
  4. We chose one of the best studios in Italy, Art&Music Studios.
  5. We chose microphones which do not represent  common choices for recording “perfect pianos”, but mics we found were complementing the sound we had in our minds and hearts.
  6. We compiled and edited the whole thing as a set of 3 soulful and colorful instruments.
