Piano Realism Pack™ for MOXF



The Piano Realism Pack for MOXF is a library of sounds designed to enhance the sonic quality and realism of the pianos in a MOXF. With the Piano Realism Pack you can produce more realistic sounding piano solo recordings of your MOXF, as well as boost your playing enjoyment. 

A real piano:

A real piano's "action" produces subtle sounds that occur between the notes, some of which are missing from the stock MOXF pianos: sounds from the dampers and the pedals, others of which can be enhanced: the sounds from the hammer mechanism. These sounds can be subtle (more felt than heard) -- but you can hear them if you listen carefully to a recording of a real piano. On a recording, the microphone may have been placed close enough to the action mechanism to pick up these sounds. Without the action sounds, a digital piano may sound somewhat artificial and two-dimensional at times.
 
The good news is that the powerful synthesis engine in the MOXF has the ability to generate the piano action sounds without having to load additional waveforms. When you install the Piano Realism Pack, new voices are placed into user memory that, when combined with basic piano voices, replicate the sounds of a piano’s action with strikingly high quality results. Piano waveforms that you load into user memory can also be mixed with the action sounds. With the included Performances and Song Mixes you have easy and precise control of the individual components of hammer action, damper felt, damper action, pedal, and key-off string dampening. It’s like adding more microphones to your piano.

Some of the things you can do with this library:

  1. Make the piano sound more realistic and three-dimensional for a recording or live performance.
  2. Add body and a “woody” quality to the piano.
  3. Make a piano solo sound more “close-up” and intimate.
  4. Simulate an old piano.
  5. Isolate and individually control the characteristics of individual piano component parts.

The Piano Realism Pack for MOTIF XF includes over 200 voices, 32 Performances, and 32 MULTIs. The voices represent individual parts of the pianos, which are combined into complete piano simulations through Performances and MULTIs. A complete piano simulation may consist of any of the following:

  1. Key-off effect – sounds of strings being silenced by the dampers
  2. Damper felt effect – sounds of felt on and off of the strings by the dampers
  3. Pedal press and release effect – sounds of a pedal mechanism
  4. Hammer release effect – sounds of hammer action when keys are released
  5. Hammer felt effect – sounds of felt in the hammer action
  6. Piano variations – S6, CFIIIS, CP1, and S700 in several tonal colors
*Although the built-in CFIII- and S6-based pianos (e.g. “Full Concert Grand”) are stretch-tuned, the S700 -based piano (“S700 for XS” from XS Sample Bank) is not. The Piano Realism Pack includes a song mix that stretch-tunes the piano to more accurately simulate the tuning of the S700 of the S90ES. Stretch tuning is known to contribute to the “singing” quality of concert grand pianos. 
 
Half of the voices in this library are dependent on the free “S700 for XS” piano, and the CP1 piano, which are not included.
