LEKKO – Piano with Maximum Character

An intimate upright piano recorded imperfectly through a vintage analog kit for the maximum character. This is not your standard, polished piano.  It’s not about versatility, either. LEKKO has a particular sound that you may fall in love with.

LEKKO is a recently released intimate upright piano, recorded imperfectly through vintage analog kit for maximum character and a collection of beautiful, textural sound design patches, exploring the world of tape and modular effects.

Besides the soft sustains, you’ll also get characterful shorts (going from a hand-muted sound to full ringing) and irregular, unsynced tremolos as well as sound design patches created by processing the sounds through the tape and vintage outboard. Among these, you’ll find sounds slowed down by playing the tape at half speed and textures modulated by rain.
