"Bambino Upright" used for 1980's Pop tunes

Postby AlexNagel » 09 Apr 2018, 13:58

I loooove the NORD upright piano samples - especially for pop music they fit like no grand ever would! The "Bambino Upright" (combined with "Imperial Grand" for the left hand) worked great for this video I recorded recently:

Watch on youtube.com


Thumbs up to NORD! ;-) Alex

Very tasteful playing and effective combination of these two pianos. Well done! I especially like your arrangement of the last song ("With Or Without You").

These are two of the three pianos I keep in my instrument at all times.

Is that internal reverb you used? Any compression?

Whatever you did, it really helps the Bambino sing in that mid-upper octave... what a creative use of two very different sample sets!

What is your third one?

Reverb is not internal. It's Cubase 9's "REVerence" plug-in, "Japanese Concert Hall" preset. And I also added some master compression using Cubase's "Maximizer" plug-in.

It's no rocket science - just using these two pianos in a split ;-) The split width is "small" by the way, so there's a slight overlap.

Not actually - and I really hope I don't get sued by NORD for using "their" colour ;-)

I even sat on a red piece of carpet - unfortunately the light was too low to see it ;-)

To be honest I didn't think one minute about the song before playing it, so calling it an "arrangement" is very flattering ;-) But it worked out nicely in terms of dynamics etc. - not always the case... And I'm also really pleased that someone actually did listen to this end section of this 9 minute video, considering the short attention span of most people these days ;-)

Thanks for listening! Alex
