Description: Introducing the London Boyd – 1920s Upright, a new upright piano library from Sonixinema. This enchanting piano graced the halls of some of London’s finest establishments for the better part of a century.
Its distinctive and deep timbre echoes the history that preceded it, which inspired us to bring the sound to this unique virtual instrument. With a remarkably rich tone, each note contains unparalleled expression that is ideal for creating a complex and emotional sound from the touch of multiple keys.
As a new addition to our popular Mini Tools range, London Boyd delivers incredible sound. We truly believe that an instrument with such important history and musicality should be available to anyone, anywhere.
To get you started, we’ve created 16 presets that range from warm and deep to broken and quirky. They were designed to provide instant inspiration and allow you to create great music. In addition to this, we have provided a range of effects such as delay, reverb, distortion and other sound shaping options to give you maximum control over the sound you want to create.
Recorded in a cramped living room in the heart of the English countryside, we focused on capturing the natural resonant character of the instrument. Using high-quality microphones such as the AKG C414 and DPA 4060, we wanted to capture not only the tonal qualities of the piano, but also the mechanical sounds. To achieve this, we placed the DPA 4060 microphones very close to the hammers and keys to recreate the feeling of sitting in front of a piano and hearing the subtle textures that really bring it to life.
