Some weeks ago I came across Christian’s YouTube channel and this wonderful pianobook project. Absolutely inspiring, both of them! I have never done any sampling before but this is the beginning, so here we go:
Following Christian’s template (and Kate ) this is my first attempt to sample my Fender Rhodes Mark II Seventy Three. It was built in 1982 and has its very own special character, a little quirky here and there and I love it. I quickly found out that it will be very hard to transform all this quirkyness into a sampler instrument but anyway: It’s amazing what the sampler instrument sounds like by now.
The signal way for recording was like this:
Rhodes --> ART Tube MP StudioV3 (a small tube preamp) --> RME Fireface 400 --> Mac
No noise reduction by now.
I put a little audio demo together: DEMO.
(First half is dry, second half is the same but with a little EQ, Chorus and Compressor)
You can get the Samples and the EXS instrument here: markus Rhodes V2
Please let me know what you think about it. Any comment is appreciated.
