VENICE UPRIGHT K8

This free wavetable expansion for the GSi Gemini features the sampling of Kawai K8 upright piano. This piano was kindly offered for sampling by music shop Bettin located in Padova, Italy.

The sampling process took place during the month of August 2022 by GSi using our custom piano sampling robot, built in collaboration with Crumar. The whole sampling process is fully automated and runs completely unattended. It took about 6 hours to capture over 2 GB worth of stereo high definition samples. The end result is the selection of a total of 480 MB worth of sampled material with velocity layers ranging from 8 to 4 per key according to the keyboard zone.

Samples are not looped, so the natural decay of the instrument has been preserved, and no EQing nor any other kind of post-processing has been applied. The recording has been done using 4 microphones, two on the front, one in the middle and one on the back, towards the bass zone.

Once loaded into the Gemini, the GSP-01 sample playback engine adds a layer of physically modeled resonances that enrich the sound by adding the missing interactions between notes that naturally happen when playing a piano but can't be reproduced just with samples.
