xoxos releases Piamo

10

xoxos has released Piamo, an elementarily modeled virtual piano, providing variable performance timbrality in a gentle emulation leant to abstraction.

“What would a simple physically modeled piano sound like?”

Piamo (“I love Pi”) provides the performance benefits of modeling in a low computational form.

The fundamental elements of the piano are modeled to create a timbrally expressive instrument less convincing than the excellent commercial emulations.

Piamo is available as a VST instrument for Windows PC. It is included with Pling3.
A functional demo is can be downloaded here (limited to three voices of polyphony, the full version is distributed with 8 voices).

Man, I’m having all kinds of problems getting my comments to show up on blogs over the last couple of days.

Anyway, just saying that the mp3 example was really promising, and that the elements of physical modeling PDF on the site was complex but interesting. Might be a good resource for any plugin programmers looking to do similar projects.

They all sound like crap when compare to samples. I hate pianoteq and especially despise truepianos. All they’re good for is getting buried in the mix of some noise filled pop song. Using these for solo classical piano is simply painful to listen to. Give me a good sample lib of a bosendorfer 290 or 275 and it blows any type of synthesized piano out of the water. It’s not even remotely close.

Probably because they hate to get spammed by idiots like you.

I encourage everyone to download the MP3 of Piamo – if you want a good laugh. I don’t know what’s he’s modeling, but it certainly isn’t a piano. Each note sounds like an acoustic bass and an acoustic guitar triggered simultaneously and then run thru some filter to give it a synth like sound, and then some chorus/echo like effect applied. When it comes to piano modeling Piamo is a TOTAL FAILURE. It sounds so bad and poorly developed that even standalone it sounds horrible: weak, thin, with more emphasis placed on the noise associated with the note than the… Read more »
