The baby grand counterpart to Verticale is here. Mezza Coda offers a rich and authentic sound that captures the nuances and beauty of a baby grand piano, enhanced by the warmth and character of two unique signal layers.
Included in Mezza Coda is the same “cassette” layer found in their popular Verticale sample library, which adds a vintage vibe and a touch of grit to the already stunning sound of the baby grand piano.
Just as they did for Verticale, Sonora Cinematic passed the piano samples to cassette using an old Portastudio set at maximum speed and then converted these samples back to their digital audio workstation slowing the tape down as much as possible.
Additionally, Mezza Coda features a brand new signal layer called “Distbox,” which was sampled using the Portastudio as a distortion device.
Sonora Cinematic recorded a stereo mix of the piano to cassette while hitting the Portastudio preamps with a very hot signal, and then slowing down the tape. The result is a raw, distorted signal that adds a unique character and texture to the sound of the piano, perfect for adding an edge to your music or creating lo-fi vibes.
With its unique combination of warmth, clarity, depth, and character, Mezza Coda is perfect for a wide range of musical genres, from media scoring and jazz to pop and electronica. Discover the power of a world-class baby grand piano sample library with a vintage and gritty twist.
Mezza Coda requires a free or full version of Kontakt 7.3 or later.
