How good is the sympathetic resonance in this Casio? #2921361 12/09/19 04:38 PM

The sympathetic resonance is clearly audible during most of this video clip. How natural is this modeling? To me, it is not natural.

That being said, the performer has done a great job and by far it's the best cover of Cold Play's Daddy.

I think it suits the song he is playing.

You can turn it off on this piano or have 10 levels of String resonance to your liking.

No, this does not sound very "natural" at all, particularly in the lower register. (perhaps it's just some weird setting, or simply a poor recording?) I have watched other videos of his, while playing this same Casio, and they sound really beautiful. I recommend the one of him playing Calum Scott's "You Are The Reason"... I think most will agree that this instrument can sound quite authentic indeed.

I agree that the bass notes don't sound quite piano-like. I think something is happening, besides "sympathetic resonance".

His main (piano) tone might be layered with something else. It might be some "mellow piano", with slower attack time for the bass. And if he's being really sophisticated, it could be layered (for recording) with some VST instrument. I don't know what effects that Casio has available.

Nice playing, in any case!

EDIT: What model Casio is it?

[/quote]How do you record the sound of your piano?

The piano is connected to a USB Audio Interface via MIDI cable. The same Audio Interface is connected to the camera. In this way the piano acts just like a MIDI Controller. The PC runs Kontakt 5 and a Piano Virtual Instrument (a VSTi) that has been customized to sound like a Bosendorfer 290 Imperial. The software provides me with unlimited possibilities and sound options, as well as a virtually unlimited polyphony. I keep working on the sound to improve it at each recording and I adapt the sound to each cover. Also the synth sounds (e.g. the strings you hear in my version of Chevaliers de Sangreal) are generated by the same software. In 2017, I started experimenting with new and more advanced sound libraries, especially for strings, such as the ones I used in Pirates of The Caribbean – At World’s End. The final touch to the sound (post-production and mastering) is… a secret recipe![/quote]

So _none_ of the sound is generated by the GP300 -- it's all VST's. He like the GP300 action a lot.

Interesting... thanks for this info, Charles. I've been following him for awhile now, and I've noticed that the sound of his Casio always seems a little different with each video, so I kinda figured that he must have some technical tricks up his sleeve.

I really enjoy his covers; this is someone who really knows what he's doing, and seems to have a lot of fun doing it! For another gem, watch him play "What a Wonderful World". Outstanding. He's right up there with Sangah Noona.

I'd really like to see him play sometime using just his Casio with no added effects, to hear how it sounds on its own.

This is impossible! His neurons are not detecting the 1ms delay and he plays this good? I will never believe it (I will tell my mom).

Actually, now that I compare the sound to my MP7SE, I think Kawai has a damn good modeling!
