The Bosque Piano is a very old upright piano we discovered in a 100 year old college auditorium found in Bosque County Texas. Both the space itself and the piano had such amazing tones it was just begging to be sampled, so we did. This library contains multisampled longs, multisampled shorts (hard and soft) and a slew of cinematic phrases and accents which ooze scores from the late 1960s and 1970s by composers such as Jerry Goldsmith and David Shire. To keep things as lightweight as possible within your DAW the instrument has a very small footprint and only contains the four patches listed above to keep things as user friendly, useable, instantly inspiring, and simple as possible.
– As The Bosque Piano was recorded within the hall it resides with a pair of high quality stereo mics from the middle of the room it has a very unique tone.
– The reverb is burned into the samples to give it a sense of space so there are no dry samples here and this library is geared towards scoring games and films.
– The phrase patch harkens back to a time when the piano was used within film scores in a much more avante garde / John Cage fashion so they have a unique vibe not found anywhere else.
– The GUI has controls for EQ, an added long reverb, a nice delay, as well as attack and release controls so you can make the sound what you need or want it to be.
