ABBA - The Winner Takes it All

Postby theover » Thu May 16, 2013 12:40 pm

I've made a heavy patch (requiring a lot of polyphony, but it's worth it) allowing the keyboardist to get a lead bright piano sound with a synth layers under it.

The well know song:



here's an example of me trying the sound for this song:

http://www.theover.org/Keybdmg/pc3os221_winnerta.mp3 (256 kbps ste mpr 44.1, taken analog out from PC3 to computer 192/24 AD, no extra processing, no other sounds)

Depending on if you use a PA or keyboard amp, you may want to make sure it can handle the power and dynamics ths sound can create, it would be a shame to blow your wonderfull monitors up, so beware it's a heavy sound!

Bright pop piano with lots of colorful animation in the synth layers. Nice work, Theo! 8-)

Thank you for great sound. Maybe should be added some little chorus to piano layer, for touch of honky upright piano?

Check how many layers are on your piano patch. I would delete the layers that are not absolutely necessary, (hammer thunks, etc) I hear "voice robbing" in your patch which I think you might be able to minimize. Maybe you've checked this, but in case you haven't, set the limits of the synth sound to only the notes you really need them to cover. Also use sus2 for the piano pedal settings and synth (if you have it assigned.)
