NE5: Layers with different pianos?

Postby rudiratlos » 19 Sep 2016, 14:39

My post is mainly addressed to NE5-Users:
I’m really content with my NE5 but two weeks before i saw Jeff Young with his band in concert playing on his nord stage a wonderful layer sound with different pianos. Especially the combination for covering the old Dylansong „I shall be released“ was great (I think a combination of an acoustic piano with an EP4 MarkV?) and I thought what a s*** that I don’t have the money to buy a Stage.
To play a similar sound on my NE5 I made a Sample of the E-Piano4 Mark V to layer it with the intern acoustic piano and find a fuller and warmer and more floating sound like a pure piano.

The sample first didn’t convince me but cranking rather strong and unusual with the EQ (B:8 Freq:546 Gain: - 2,6 Tr: - 13,4/ only for the synth-part!!) and effects (a little bit vibe - eventually very less of Drive) and with the right balance between both pianos the result for me is not perfect but very satisfying. I choose the silver grand because it cuts through the mix in the trebles. I adjusted the balance so that with a soft attack you hear more of the epiano and with a strong attack more of the brilliance of the acoustic piano is audible. With the Sample you find a NE5-program-file with my adjustments.
The mp3- demo starts with the layer, 0:18 only silver grand, 0:28 only EP4 MarkV, 0:38 layer of both

Has anyone of you nsmp- samples of E-pianos which are combinable with acoustic piano or clavinets of the Nord electro.
:keyboard2:
What’s your opinion? I would be thankful for tipps and improvements.

Very nice. most of my best piano sounds on my NS2 are layers of different pianos (with perhaps a nice synth sample layered it as well). Nord has stock program one called Rhodlitzer that I particularly like. It has a component of Rhodes, Wurlitzer and a little bit of pad synth with some pan and chorus effects.

I have a sound on my NE5 where I've layered one of the piano sounds with a piano sample tuned to a higher octave and it works really nicely together. Per the other poster, on my NS2, I love to double up pianos - actually the CP80 and acoustic piano sounds go really nicely together.

Hi Rudi,

sounds really good! Thanks for posting.

I have set the decay to 7s, because the sample is looped.

And I have changed the silver grand's velocity to 1.
Now it works fine for me.

Thank you all for your ideas und suggestions. :thanx:

To change the velocity of the silver grand to 1 in my program sounds really better.
The combination acoustic piano with an cp80 on NE5 is possible with the Nord sample "ElGrand CP80" of the sample library http://www.nordkeyboards.com/sound-libr ... 2-0/pianos (When I have more time I try to make a better sample in stereo maybe added with a little bit pad).
It would be great if someone could make a nsmp-sample of the Rhoditzer-Program for the Nord electro Users which was mentioned by jfenton.
