"Vintage Electric" is been used by American composer Geoff Stradling for the music of 2019 Golden Globe night as the only virtual instrument played within a real orchestra!
"Vintage Electric" is based on an old Fender Rhodes Mark I electric piano made in 1976.
Find your own sound
To find out the best sounds from the piano, Paolo Principi had to work with the screwdriver note by note
Paolo recorded his "Vintage Electric" ny amazing Apogee Symphony I/O mkii sound card for the best audio resolution and musical details.
By a careful analysis of the sound, he found a great variation of the harmonic spectrum during the dynamic range of the tines.
Composing the sound
Paolo used up to 16 dynamic layers for each note of the instrument; a dynamic response control and effects
