I’m looking for some samples of piano chords that I can chop up and play with. Ideally multiple chords from the same scale. Any suggestions for good sources?
sorry, just joking
But there are so many sample packs out there.
Maybe just try splice.com?
Scaler with a piano VST. Spitfire labs has high quality free stuff.
I had planned to mic up our piano this week but my family members trip abroad is cancelled due to… eeuuhhh what was it again, forgot about it.
If I ever get to finally sample the piano, i’ll share it on the forum.
I definitely prefer to record fresh piano samples for each project when I can because it becomes part of the compositional process. As you record new ideas come out and old ideas condense.
Hope you get some personal time with a piano soon, @TonyDS!
assuming you just want something quickly to fuck about with, sat in my studio rn so I just made you a couple. the 12 second ones are both F# 7ths and the longer one is assorted 7ths
Is scaler the best chord generator plugin then?
I don’t know really, I am not so into comparing plugins because that’s an endless pit of sorrow and a total show stopper.
I just picked 1 up last black Friday and I stick to it. I use it to come up with ideas and then take the idea out of the box. It’s also a way to learn theory and take that to a keyboard/piano layout or a guitar (it can also show the scale/notes/ chords on a fretboard).
