Like the calm, steady stream that rushes out into a tumbling ocean of waves and spray, the piano is an instrument capable of a dizzying range of emotional nuance. Minimal Piano Loops, our latest Mini Pack, focuses on the soft, subtle shades of this spectrum, from still, tropical waters to the calm before the storm!
Positioned at the intersection between Classical and Ambient, a new breed of pianists such as Nils Frahm and Olafur Arnalds have reclaimed the felts and hammers, creating an ethereal, expressive musical language that we explore across the 61 royalty-free piano loops and orchestral layers included in this selection.
From deft, flowing chord progressions and delicate flights of arpeggios, to gentle, dancing melodic passages and tranquil motifs, we've made extensive use of both the sustain and practice pedals on a range of upright and grand pianos to produce this set of smooth, rich and enveloping piano parts.
Across a range of minor and major keys and tempos from 75 up to 140 Bpm, the loops are split between melodic patterns performed in 4/4 as well as the 3/4 time signature, with the core choice of 51 acoustic piano loops accompanied by the warmth of 15 complementary strings, choir and subtle noise texture layers.
60 key and tempo-labelled tail samples complete the collection, allowing you to bring your chosen piano loop to a smooth, natural decay in your DAW session.
