FELT 54 is an intimate felt piano with character, it’s not the conventional bright and harmonically complex upright piano.
Stereo sampled from a felt customized upright Yamaha U3 1975 that has been modified in a way that makes the tone more pure, yet preserves its harmonic richness.
A 0.8mm felt strip was added between the hammers and strings, and the middle section’s tone of the piano was simplified by muting 2 out of 3 strings per note.
The instrument was captured by 3 microphones resulting in a very intimate stereo image.
FELT 54 covers a range of 54 notes, the sweet spot range of this particular piano.
- 3 EQ Knobs (Low,Mid,High)
- Intimate room reverb
- Tape Delay (Synced Time, Feedback, Send Level)
- Pedal noise and key release noise levels
- a Special TAPE module with 3 knobs (Analogue Tape Hiss, Saturation intensity, Flutter intensity)
FELT 54 is ideal for Ambient music and Melancholic film scores, as well as LO-FI hip-hop music with the Tape settings driven up.
