Free Download: Philip Glass Piano

 

Spitfire Audio has released free Philip Glass Piano plugin.

 

New LABS instrument was recorded in Glass’s New York home: get the sound of the composer’s baby grand in your DAW.

 

The new Glass Piano plugin – a collaboration with composer Philip Glass, looks rather appealing. Powered by samples that were captured at Philip Glass’s home in Manhattan, NYC, and released to mark his 85th birthday, this gives you the sound of his baby grand piano, which has been in the same premises since the 1990s.

 

Glass Piano comes with six presets that cover everything from ‘standard’ grand piano tones to more atmospheric and warped sounds. The simple interface and control set means that both beginners and more experienced players can use it.

 

Discussing his baby grand, Philip Glass says: “My piano has been my piano for 30 years. I have a tuner who makes it sound the way I want it to sound. When I’m writing music, and if I play it, it’ll be on this piano.

 

“It’s not just the piano and its sound. It’s the room it’s in, it’s the density of the walls and floorboards and the temperature. It’s how young or old a piano is. My piano has a heavy action. It’s even how the keys are varnished. Just like people, pianos have personalities.

 

“Especially the low parts of the piano tend to be pitches that are very clear to me. If you look at all 88 keys, the piano is different in different places. The lower octaves of my piano are not meant to be bold and aggressive. They are meant to be beautiful and spiritual, and that’s how they sound.”

 

Glass Piano is available now from the Spitfire Audio website. It runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats.
