1959. Hidden Electro-Acoustic Piano
1959 by Sampleson is based on the Electro-Acoustic Piano patent (lifetime expired) registered in 1959. Sampleson brought it to life using Spectral Modeling. Sound can be described as CP80-like, but a bit more tuned due to the fewer number of strings.
The experience of recreating a forgotten Electro-Acoustic piano patent
Does it sound like the original one? They don't know, because it has never been built. And Sampleson won't build it (by the moment). But the experience of bringing to life an instrument that never existed was super-exciting. The resulting sound of this virtual instrument is warm, clean, and bright. The expressiveness of the piano action they emulated gives it a nice and wide range of timbres. From warm lows to metallic shines on higher velocities.
The original patent proposes an idea about string vibration direction that improves the pickup effectiveness.
