The Basilica Pianos

Will work in most DAWs and notation software, using Plogue's sforzando!

     Described as a "hidden gem", The Basilica Pianos is a high quality, but affordable sample library, that features both a grand piano and an upright piano, recorded in the same space and sampled by hand, using a stereo microphone setup. Also included are various effects, from strumming and plucking the strings of the grand piano, to a playable range of palm-muted samples from the upright piano. Each piano is available by itself, minus effects.

     

Features:

     - A 7ft semi-concert grand piano and an upright studio piano, both recorded in a large church from a close perspective, with the same 2 large diaphragm studio condenser microphones.

          - Full length samples

          - Unique samples set with sustain pedal up and down (with natural sympathetic response)

          - Simulated una corda (soft pedal)

          - Up to 5 phase-aligned dynamic layers

          - Adjustable multi-dynamic note releases

          - Adjustable mechanical noises (pedals and keys)

     - Additional effects patch for each piano

          - Pluck, scrape, and strum effects (grand piano)

          - Playable palm mute effect and percussive impact effects, in round robin (upright piano)

     - Works with Plogue's sforzando, a free SFZ player that functions as both a standalone player and a VST/AU/RTAS/AAX plugin, for use in a DAW or notation software

Welcome!

I have been composing original music for over a decade! My work has been heard in award-winning short films as well as audio dramas, private commissions, and performed live in concert.

 

To help me make my music, I create my own unique virtual instrument sample libraries, which are available for download by my fellow musicians and composers.

 

As a trumpet player, I have experience performing both classical music and jazz, earning awards and honors in both styles. See Full Bio
