How does one make this piano?!
« on: April 21, 2016, 05:52:29 pm »
Hey all, Ive been attempting to recreate the piano sound from the track, im fairly sure its a honkytonk piano, maybe band passed? Playing Eight's? Ive tried but nothing sounds that good at all.

So the entire song was run through a pitch-shifting algorithm (probably Elastique) by whoever uploaded it to get around copyright claims (Non pitch-shifted version).

So just pitch shift a regular piano sample up by a half step I guess?

Try to add a short room reverb to give it that little slapback delay?

Oh, you're good! It can be hard to identify a good pitch shift algorithm without immediate comparison against the original. I only noticed because I also gave a listen to the original mix.

But using pitch stretching on a piano sample run through reverb does seem to create a unique sound, so your original link was useful either way!
