Sampled vs. Real

Posted on February 7, 2008 at 10:50am 7 Comments

First off nothing beats a real piano in a great studio. That being said, its getting alot easier to fool people with samples. I'm getting the best response out the Kontakt version Sampletekk pianos (7Seas Grand, TBO, & Black Grand).

I'd say the next gen pianos are going to be amazing. Hopefully we can start getting pianos that come on their own hard drive....

Let me know if you have any tips for getting the most out of a sampled piano (Midi tricks, EQ, Limiting). I have… Continue

Hey John!
I have been very fortunate since moving to Nashvile. SHEER determination! : ) Ha ha !
Your family's theatre is well known! How awesome to be a part of a family situation, such as yours, where you are always home and together! I'm sure it has it's good days and it's bad, just like anything else in this business, but it IS a great way to work!

Yes, Gregg has been just an angel! He is the one who told me about this site! Bret is a good friend of his! I met Gregg while charting part of Pam Tillis' vocals for her 2007 Christmas Show! Greg arranged the finale, and I 'orchestrated ' his charts. Something like 16 tracks, plus vocals! I had a BALL in Pam's studio putting the Finale together! : )
You know, Gregg and I have not 'met in person' yet, but we've become good friends through e-mail! What a talent and angel he is! : )

John, SO GREAT meeting you too! Next time I'm in Branson, I would love to come by and see you and your family perform! : )

Thanks for your quick response, my friend! : )

Hi John!
Noticed you were a keyboardist, and wanted to say Hi! I was just told about this site today from a good friend of mine over at The Mansion, in Branson, Gregg Gray! : )

Just thought I'd drop by to say, "Hi! You can check out my MySpace page to learn more about me and what I've been up to, since my family and I moved to Nashville, from Texas, in 1992! It's:
Thanks John!
Nice 'meeting you' ! : )
