A Modern Classic
The Modern Upright features a Yamaha U3 - regarded as a modern classic among pianists.
It has a tight and defined tone together with an airy ambience that makes it the perfect companion for demanding musicians.
The Modern Upright fits nicely in any production - the included ExploreMaps offer presets covering everything from smooth jazz with a warm vintage sound to an upfront pop sound with character - and much more.
The Modern Upright features a Yamaha U3 piano in great condition recorded with utmost care. Recorded in a large auditorium recording room, divided as a large stage area and a space for live audience. This studio is mainly used to broadcast live performances with high acoustical demands. The ambience sound is detailed with a medium long decay time. The Modern Upright was recorded from seven microphone perspectives ranging from close to far, floor to soundboard and mono to stereo. Perfectly composed for mixing and matching in Addictive Keys.
The recording process
The recordings were done using rare vintage tube, ribbon and floor microphones capturing the instrument from seven different perspectives, mono and stereo from close up with microphones next to the soundboard, to far away perspective with natural room ambience. The result is a piano that can be shaped to fit any mix in any production and music genre. From smooth jazz or singer songwriter with a warm vintage sound to a tight intimate, lush and luxurious pop sound.
The vintage microphones used for the recordings were handpicked from a vast microphone collection. After auditioning a large number of different perspectives seven perspectives were chosen:
- Front Ribb / Front Ribbon Wide - Coles 4038
- Amb Tube / Ambient Tube XY - Neumann SM69
- Front Tube/Front Tube XY - Neumann M269
- Back Tube / Back Tube Wide - Sela T25
- Floor PZM / Floor PZM Wide - Sennheiser MKE212
- Bottom Tube / Bottom Tube Mono - Neumann U47
- Back Ribb / Close Ribbon Mono - RCA 6203
