Joachim Horsley´s lovingly-restored 1890's Steinway B

Created with media composer and arranger Joachim Horsley, Joachim's Piano is a one-of-a-kind sampling of his lovingly-restored 1890's Steinway B including the natural piano, preparations, percussion, and effects.

Over 40 hours of studio time went into recording the exact piano, space, and mic setups used in "Via Havana" and Joachim's series of YouTube videos. A focus on rhythmic playability, the instrument is chromatically sampled with up to 4 Round Robins. Both sus and non-sus pedal samples were recorded on all patches.
