Water Piano lets you turn your regular studio piano into endlessly evolving, atmospheric sounds that are suitable for everything from new age to horror, action to chill.
Created in collaboration with engineering genius YouTuber Matthias Kranz, who filled the body of the piano with gallons of water and recorded it at various levels of water you can control, from dry to fully submerged.
- Supremely unique grand piano
A character-filled studio grand piano recorded totally dry with close mics, then full of hundreds of pounds of water using underwater mics.
- Three distinct sample pools
6 dynamics and 2 RRs for both dry and wet (submerged) samples, plus infinitely-sustained, pad-like frozen samples.
- Water sound effects
Select from gentle or strong fill, drips, splashes, slaps, swishes, or whisks, mixed in subtly with the piano.
- Chromatic sampling
Every key is recorded individually for maximum realism and playability.
- 31 inspiring snapshots
Versatile and creative sounds ranging from playable pianos and plucks, to ambiance and tonal soundscapes.
- Streamlined, modern UI
Spacious yet elegant style works great on 4K and Retina displays.
- Tone-shaping controls
Adjust sample offset, key noise, tone, volume envelope, and velocity curve to completely transform the instrument.
- Microtuning engine
Select from over a dozen preset tunings and temperaments, or create your own microtuned scale.
- Special convolution reverb
“Extra Wet” control morphs the output of the piano with a running river, with four separate lengths of IR available from short to extra-long.
- CONSOLE FX rack and mixer
Dozens of modules from analog-style EQs and compressors to convolution reverb, distortion and more.
