Toy Piano

Who has never wanted to have a Toy Piano like Schroeder’s, from Peanuts? The sound of the piano is produced by metal bars stroke by plastic hammers, almost like a glockenspiel but more deep and warm. This lovely 2-octaves upright toy piano was sampled with the lid both closed and open and percussions samples have been recorded playing its wood case with hands, nylon brushes and rubber mallets. There are also different ambient/pad/drone instruments created using samples start/loop tricks and a bunch of effects, both with a custom, tweakable, GUI.
