EVOCATIVE CONCERT GRAND
- Nils Frahm’s concert grand, meticulously sampled in a legendary space
- Pure, felt-dampened, and sound design versions, with extensive customization options
- Innovative particles engine sparks ideas for solo compositions, scoring, and more
Experience firsthand the signature grand piano sound of composer and pianist Nils Frahm. This is the sound of a unique concert grand – handpicked by the artist, custom intonated, and augmented with a felt damper. We’ve captured the piano in its native habitat – the ambient environment of Saal 3 in Berlin’s renowned, Bauhaus-designed Funkhaus recording complex. The result is a unique, intense, and evocative instrument, with an atmosphere all of its own.
PURE AND FELT
What sound do you need for your next piece? You have two here to choose from. The pure version delivers a clear, unadulterated grand piano tone. The felt version is completely distinct sample – the same grand piano, but with a felt moderator between hammers and strings, which creates a gentle tone with reduced attack. You can sculpt the sound of both by adjusting the attack, release, resonance, overtones, velocity curve, temperament, and more.
WHAT IS THE PARTICLES ENGINE?
Looking to spark new ideas? Use the innovative particles engine to automatically generate clouds of pulsating, swirling harmonic elements based on what you play. The particles engine instantly adds motion to your playing and pushes you to explore new possibilities.
NOIRE isn’t about imitating a certain sound – it gives you inspiring raw material, and plenty of creative options for making the sound your own. Integrate noises for realism, choose from a range of sound design options, dial in some sub bass, and try your hand at creative tone shifting. Then fine-tune the piano’s place in the mix by applying EQ, compression, reverb, and delay.
