Herbie Hancock: Triumphant Victory

Inspiration strikes as Herbie explores one of Keyscape's highly unique hybrid piano sounds in a moment of wild improvisation!

Comments below:

hmmm the stuff he was improvising on really reminds me of Bartok or Stravinsky
Yeah he really made a big step out of jazz but still in improvisation in the last few years ! what an amazing work he produces !
Daniel Liedtke
That's what it reminded me of as well. Like Shostakovich's piano concerto or Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition
Robin Moritz
from 0:51 to 1:05 I clearly hear bach's toccata in d minor
Daniel Williams
IsaacOrson the older he has gotten the closer he has gotten to contemporary classical
He started out as a classical pianist

DOMi: Searing Solo

18 year old French keyboard prodigy DOMi played us w/super sick dual keyboard solo jam using two Omnispheres both in Stack mode and using the Keyscape Creative Library! Each controller keyboard is connected to the laptop and to a respective Omnisphere plug-in which is in Stack Mode. The zones of the various Omnisphere/Keyscape patches crossfade across the range of the keys, so a bass transforms into a lead, etc. DOMi has a footpedal that allows her to activate the wah effect or bring in other sounds. This allowed her a lot sonic freedom and so everything you hear in this completely improvised live performance is coming from the laptop.

KEYSCAPE: Otmaro Ruiz – Arabesque

As Venezuelan pianist and composer Otmaro Ruíz played Keyscape for the first time, we were fortunate to capture this moment of improvised inspiration, when he spontaneously created this hauntingly beautiful piano piece.

The NEW Yamaha SLG 200N - Gymnopédie No. 1 Satie Kloster Langwaden

Yamaha Silent Guitar "SLG200N" & "Gymnopédie No. 1" (Eric Satie)

The progress of the "Yamaha SLG200n" to its predecessor "SLG130 nw" is well heard for the experienced musician.

The already existing fantastic soft and expressive treble string sound on the former model can be found in the new "SLG200 n", too, but now by bass strings worn by a clear "more "in volume, and an equally clear "more" overtones (Flageolett), a recognizable better sound profile....

Therefore the "Yamaha SLG200n", IMO, is practically indistinguishable from a classical concert guitar (depending on the used amplifier).

The sound offers significantly enhancements in volume what probably seems to be the result of the new SRT-sound system. Especially when playing the lower strings, the typical sound effect of a guitar body is now amazingly realized.

The sound is pure, clear and rich in volume by admixing the SRT-effect - in my experience, a value of 40-50% seems to be optimal - this will also significantly minimize the pure piezo pickup impact noise if playing with too much bass and playing near the guitar bridge ("plock-plock"). When recording, IMO it is advisable to put the bass on minimum and the heights to maximum, for unknown reasons, the recorded sound otherwise and to my surprise will get quite bassy.

But this may perhaps depend only on my recording equipment.
By playing "normal" via amplifier, both controllers are best set to "neutral", the fine tuning of the tone control is performed on the amplifier used, and these settings will vary depending on the device used.

In my opinion the "Yamaha SLG 200N", for the ambitious classical guitar player, is a very good choice, not only without any disturbing feedback on stage, but indeed, if a flawless classical guitar sound is needed..... My recommendation!
