Great FM Pianos

Post by dawman » Wed May 21, 2008 12:54 am

I was shocked to look at an old device from Celmo called Blue Wave.

When I bought this a few years back I loved it, but wanted to conserve DSP so I opted for a sample of it in Kontackt that was translated to Gigastudio for me.

It never sounded near as good as the instrument did, but I mixed it w/ some FM Encyclopedia sounds and it had all of the polyphony I needed.

At any rate Celmo was kind enough to raise the Polyphony from a 4 and 8 voice device to 16 +.

With 3 Scope Pro's it worked really well but I couldn't use Solaris and it together live.

But I have recently re discovered it's great sounding electric pianos. They sound exactly like the DX200 Yamaha I played in the day.

So those who plan on getting XITE-1 should definately get Bluewave and beg Celmo to extend it's polyphony.

This will give you some really incredible FM E Pianos. It sounds even better than my FM8 by a long shot.

It also has the best chorus I ever heard in Scope.

I guess I should do a little demo tomorrow.

So It Shall Be Written, So It Shall Be Done. :wink:

No way Jose'.

With 16 voice polyphony, this is a candidate for XITE-1.

Perhaps Celmo read a Nostradamos Quatraint years ago about XITE-1's release, hence the big polyphony. :lol: ... highlight=

Here's a little demo of it with his Pro Vintage Delay being overused.

I should have taken the time and run this through the DAS SL9000 channel strip's gate to clip the tails a little bit.

Great song you quote! A few weeks ago we performed it in our little theatre in an evening with texts and songs under the title "sex and nervousness". I liked to play it on the piano and to sing the spanish bridge.

Sorry for OT.
