Augmented Piano delivers a unique collection of 24 piano preparations created and recorded on a beautiful 1909 Pleyel grand piano. Ever wondered what a piano would sound like played with a bow, guitar pick or plucked with your fingers? What if you could layer those sounds together with differing attack and decay times? Now you can.
With Augmented Piano UVI wanted to go beyond traditional prepared piano sounds and offer something both new and inspiring, providing a way for musicians to easily craft and explore new tones and expressive possibilities with an instrument they already know and love.

From sustained to percussive, conventional to uncharted, Augmented Piano is a deep-dive into the sound design rabbit hole with a 1909 Pleyel Grand. The result is an incredible selection of 24 preparations, immaculately captured with 3 microphone sets; a stereo Royer ribbon mic, a stereo-pair of BK condensers, and a mono PZM (pressure zone microphone).
Per source, each note was recorded with multiple velocities and round-robins for both the sustain and release sections of the sound. A staggering 23,889 samples were recorded and edited in all, giving Augmented Piano a truly detailed, expressive and natural sound.
Augmented Piano includes 24 preparations:
Bow, Brush Slide, Brush Tap, Caps, Coin, eBow, Finger, Finger Muted, Harmonics, Key Noise, Metal Foil, Metal Sticks, Muted, Normal, Pick, Pick Muted, Rubber, Screws, Structural Effects, Tack, Tacked Muted, Una Corda, Wallet, Wood Stick and mixed preparations.
