This is awesome. Amazing that so many atmospheres can be expressed with one instrument.

Re: [Ambient] Spacey Rhodes Piano

Beautiful sound. I love how well it could work as a bass or treble instrument. Almost haunting but could just as easily be dreamy

Re: [Ambient] Spacey Rhodes Piano

Thanks to everyone who listened and left a comment! Much appreciated.

The Rhodes is an amazing instrument. I feel like I got some decent sound out of it, but the possibilities are much higher than what I was able to do. With tape delays and echos/chorus/etc, it really comes alive.

I hope to make many more of these volumes in the future and release them. It was a joy to make!

It's really amazing. The Rhodes by itself has many different tones you can coax out of it. Just in the bass section alone, if you press lightly you get a sub bass type tone, if you press firm you get a growling bass tone. Unfortunately my Rhodes is in need of a tune-up so I wasn't really able to showcase the sound all that well, but I did what I could. The Rhodes is very versatile instrument though. You just have to get creative with it.

Man, I wish, wish, WISH I had an SP-303 Dr. Sampler to run it through, because I miss the tremolo/auto-pan effect that box had. Playing a Rhodes through tremolo/auto-pan is just magical. Unfortunately my MV-8800 doesn't have a tremolo or pan effect or I would have used it for this project.

Anyway, thanks again for listening and keep the comments coming!

Re: [Ambient] Spacey Rhodes Piano

man i love the discordance in this! i think discordance really makes music more interesting. i find discordance followed by concordance has a really nice effect to it. really nice ambient track! i love how you did this with just one piano with loads of fx, really shows how one instruments can do many things. great track!

Re: [Ambient] Spacey Rhodes Piano

This is really nice. I take it you used a real Rhodes? The only suggestion I have is that it sounds a bit quantized and something like this feels like it should be more free.

Yep. I used a real Rhodes Mark II, which badly needs a tune-up, but whatever, it still works for the most part . Has a few dead keys but I just play around them.

As for sounding quantized, I didn't quantize it at all, since I recorded it as live audio. The style of the album is generally very quantized though, I see what you mean. I only played notes on the 1-2-3-4 of the patterns mostly. That was sort of by design. I found that it created an interesting element to keep the notes sparse. Also, I'm not that skilled at playing piano/composing yet, so I had to make due with my skill level. I would love to just sit down at the piano and put together some insane, free-flowing masterpiece with a million notes and variations, but I'm not there yet. So I work within my boundaries. Glad you like it anyway though.

Thanks to everyone who gave it a listen.

Re: [Ambient] Spacey Rhodes Piano

as to saying you want to sit down and put together a million note masterpiece, i think you'll find that once you get better at composing, you'll start composing things youd never be able to play in a million years haha, i made a piece that my cousin whos been playing piano for 10 years had trouble with haha, and shes one hell of a good pianist too

Yep. I heavily over-compressed everything which added a bit of noise and an interesting ambiance. It makes it sound a bit more like a piece of 70s vinyl or something. Glad you noticed.

Any more listeners out there?
