Keyboard In Blue is a genuine electro-mechanical piano built from scratch. Recorded at Hollywood Scoring Studios through a vintage tube amplifier. It has a new take on that well known classic sound. It’s a great keyboard amplified into a great room – it’s real and it’s alive!⠀Keyboard In Blue definitely has character! The first knob you see is the CHARACTER knob. This controls the bias between softer and louder samples whilst maintaining the same apparent loudness. So ultimately it’s a timbre control. 

Keyboard In Blue Character

Cinesamples’ intention was to impersonate an electro-mechanical keyboard in a very organic and acoustic way. So instead of recording the direct output, a very popular method, Cinesamples sent the direct out into a vintage tube guitar amp-cabinet. The room at Hollywood Scoring Studios provided a well-balanced room in which to capture this very lively, acoustic tone. Keyboard In Blue offers 5 separate mixes: 2 close mics on the amp – ribbon and FET, a mid-room perspective, and a full room perspective. There is a FULL mix that combines the best ratio of the above.

Keyboard In Blue is available now for 99 USD.
