The Rain Piano

The Rain Piano was recorded after some extensive listening to Tom Waits’ Mule Variations. I fell in love with the piano sound on that record and decided to make something in that line. After long discussions with our piano technician. We needed a piano that sounded like it had been out in the rain for a few days.

We got a concept worked out where we set up the piano so that it would produce a lot more overtones but still play nicely with other, properly tuned instruments.

The Rain Piano has become a kind of a synonym for character pianos. It has been used and is still used on countless productions where you want something that adds a different flavor rather than using a normal piano.


Rel Vol

Control the volume of the release samples, progressing from a dry sound to a more resonant one.

HB Vol

When releasing a key on a traditional, mechanical piano, the moving parts return to home with a distinct thunk. This can add a realism and an intimacy to your sound.

Res Vol

When playing a piano with the sustain pedal down, all of the dampers are lifted from all the strings, allowing all them to resonate freely. Here, you can set the volume for how much resonance you want.

Ped Vol

Pressing and releasing the sustain pedal produces a certain sound, not unlike the "thunk" of the keys described above. This sound can add realism to your performances. Set the volume of the pedal noise here. You have a few alternate samples of pedal noise that are triggered in a random order, so you don’t get the same sound every time!

Presence has a lot of cool effects! There are a few presets included that shows some of the possibilities that you have for tweaking the instrument. Make your own! Experiment! Be bold! Go wild!
