many new house producers I know they seem to be very much into korg m1 legacy plugin for their piano house sounds. it's kinda THE 90ies piano sound. every piano sound needs some proper eq and compression to sound right'n'housey though

Seriously, ANY piano patch will do.

It's not a demanding and expressive role that the piano plays in most funky dance tracks so don't go worrying yourself about it too much..

Cheap and cheerful is the answer !

wait are we talking about 'a dubstep' or just regular dubstep?

anywho, like what beer said, ANY piano will do. compress it down real good like and get some stride going in there all Hacienda like.


its been a while since there was some good piano in a house music song.

Used some freeware Piano VST on NiceGuys Finish last, deffo not house but got the job done.

spend $100 on the cheapest rompler from the early 90's you can find. It doesn't matter which one, just make sure it costs no more than $100.

That is the magical secret, for real.

Because he's embarrassed to admit that it doesn't matter what piano synth you start with?

Your posts on Gearslutz are the best because you give away ALL the secrets to this shit and people just straight up ignore you and recommend some expensive "pro" gear. It cracks me the **** up.

Pretty sure he was using the White Grand from Sampletekk.

The ones that come with Nexus are really good too.

I get a kick out of this too. Whatupdoe? is like the voice of reason and people still can't figure out why their expensive pianos don't sound like their favorite house tracks.

What's a Piano, is it like fruity loops?

Oh man, poor guy just asked an "innocent' question and got slain. I'm sort of curious as to why the OP even asked the question. If the piano he used/had/heard didn't cut it I would love to know what led to that conclusion.

Yeah, and it's not like he didn't ask a legitimate question. rodion's response was pretty much spot on, though - the Korg M1 is renowned for its house piano sounds and is pretty ubiquitous in house music, although I'm not sure that I would classify it as "warm". YMMV.

That is because this board is all about people who BUY because they cannot DO.

You could replicate Larry Heard's studio down to ever last thing, and your ass still isn't going to sound as good as Larry Heard. You just need to use whatever you can get your hands on and do the best you can with it. That is the only way to sound like YOU.

The M1 was the classic house piano so the VST-version is an obvious recommendation if you want that typical sound.


not the greatest music but it should give you an idea soundwise.
The first riff reminded me of a Moby tune

A friend of mine told me his Bösendorfer fits well, tracking with condensers.
