THE PROCESS

It all started with the search for the perfect piano to analyze its sound. Sampleson fell in love with a Japanese Concert Grand Piano and deeply recorded it, capturing every nuance to feed our spectral analysis with high-quality audio sources.

A peaceful studio located in Patagonia gave them the noiseless scenario they needed to capture crystal-clear waveforms with top industry Mics and Preamps. Then the real process begins.

A custom-made algorithm disassembles the audio and extracts the main characteristics for each note and noise. Finally, their Spectral Engine 2.0 generates the sound every time you play it, making every note unique and irreplaceable since it’s created on the fly.

HYPER-DETAILED SPECTRAL MODELED GRAND PIANO

MetaPiano was made upon Spectral Modeling, a technique that provides realistic sounds since it’s based on real samples and not hypothetical approaches like physical modeling.

It sounds real because it is real: sound is created the same way in nature (stacking simple sinewaves together). This is why it feels organic and warm.

We’ve mapped more than 64 groups of timbre components (releases, hammer, key noises, main timbre, resonance, etc) and recreated them by Spectral Modeling, archiving a realistic and warm sound in only 60 MB, and with very low CPU usage.

MetaPiano is built upon the full dynamics of the real instrument. There’s no velocity switching because there are no layers or regions or anything that old sampling techniques needs.

WHAT EXACTLY IS SPECTRAL MODELING?

Every sound in nature can be decomposed into simple sine waves, from a bird tweet to a trumpet note. Spectral Modeling is the process of analyzing and creating a sound by stacking simple sine waves together.

According to Julius O. Smith (Standford) Spectral Modeling provides a representation closer to the brain’s perception of sound because the brain and the ear are spectral decoders.
