There are situations where a broken or honky tonk piano sound is
required or wanted, such in special effects, horror, western, films, tv,
to create a mood, or even just for a unique sound in tracks. The demos
are intended to show the variety of uses. This isn't recognizable as a
sampled piano. The level of detail is just to ensure that where a broken
or honky tonk sound is required, this piano is versatile enough to fit
into almost any mix or sound space. There is a vast difference in the
mechanical imperfections between the different mic perspectives, so for
example, perspective 2 shows the broken strings and mis-shaped hammers
in detail, where perspective 4 you hear almost none of this, but it
retains its naturally un-tuned sound character.
