Dark Mood features a sampled Yamaha Piaggero NP31 76-Key, a lightweight, compact, portable keyboard. The Piano was processed using UAD SSL 4000 G Bus Compressor and Ampex ATR-102 Mastering Tape Recorder. There are also two bundled Akai plugins assigned to the program as additional processing (large Reverb and Master compressor).
Each sample in Dark Mood lasts approximately 4 seconds and sampled between C0 thru C5 over 4 velocity layers. Only 4 seconds of every note was sampled because we wanted to keep the size of the piano below 250 megs. The kit is 249 megs unzipped and will work in both MPC as a standalone instrument and in controller mode.
The Cycle Kit and Beat Community tell us the piano in Dark Mood works well for Trap music and vintage R&B Soul but it can be used of anything.
