Post Eventide (non-Stick)
Good things happen when you're playing with new stuff :D

No Stick in this one but I'd just picked up the new Arturia V Collection 6 and was playing with their piano which is new to me. Very nice sound and when I ran it through my Valhalla reverbs, it was like heaven so I just played it for hours. Next thing you know I started trying some looped piano and a day later, I fired up Logic and recorded this piece.

Nice sound on that piano and with the reverb, Glenn. Also enjoyed the composition and the playing. Thanks for sharing this!

Very nice, Glenn. Love the tone and playing. Can you share which of the Valhalla verbs you were using? I assume I hear Shimmer and Freq Echo but may be wrong... ;)

If you like those big ambient piano washes as much as I do, download Audio Damage's EOS Reverb and try the "This Budds For You" preset. That's my go-to for this type of space.

Best

Thanks guys!

That's 100% Valhalla Shimmer.

I was in a guitar workshop a few years back and Billy McLaughlin talked a lot about "playing your reverb". In other words, paying attention to it and letting it sing. Given the option, I would always prefer my acoustic piano over software but it sure is nice to occasionally pipe that sound through some really nice effects. It just gives it a whole different dimension.

Sounds Amazing Glen!

Arturia rocks, I have their Yamaha CS80 app thats much fun but limited only to very "electronic sounds". I'd love to add that collection to my pro tools!

Yeah I love the Arturia stuff. I had the V Collection version 2 which didn't have near the instruments version 6 has. It's funny too. I love old synths and I was literally a heartbeat away from pulling the trigger on the purchase of re-issue Minimoog Model D. I was really having a hard time justifying the expense for a monophonic synth with no patch memory though. They sound amazing and are a little piece of history but still. So at the last minute I opted to spend a small fraction instead and pick up the V Collection 6. 21 instruments instead of 1 and still a nice Minimoog to play with.
