The B-Pian Upright is a bad, old, out of tune, mecanically unperfect but still usable upright piano. After watching a movie (we won't say which one) scene with a guy playing on an old upright and hearing what clearly was a 9 foot grand, we decided that it was time to produce that sound everybody knows, the sound of the piano you played on when you started learning the piano, the one that you were at your friends place and is taking dust and that goes out of tune in two weeks.

Default interface

This is the default interface of the plugin. We adjusted all of the parameters the best possible way. If you want to adjust something, simply click on settings.

Mixing settings

On this library, the Mixing settings are only a control over the volume and pan.General settingsMidi settings

General settings

In this panel, you can change most of the aspects of the library to make it sound just like you want.
You can adjust:

 

The release Volume: the sound produced when you release a key if a note was going on.
The Key Noises: the sound produced when you release a key and no corresponding sustain was played.
The Pedal Noise: the sound produced when you press or release the pedal, it adds a lot to the realism.
The Tone: a simple way to make the piano sound brighter or darker.
The sostenuto CC, also called the middle pedal. You can sustain selected notes, while other notes remain unaffected.
The polyphony. If you lower the buffer or simply want to be light on CPU, then increase or lower this value.
The Reverb. We use a convolution reverb and you can adjust the dry and wet parts separately.

Midi settings

In the midi panel, you have access to all of the midi controls to help you adjust the library to your controller or playing style:

 

The MIDI remapper allows you to assign any input velocity to any output velocity.
The MIDI curve controls the midi remapper and will give it a concave or convex shape thus changing a "MIDI sensitivity".
The Velocity Threshold is simply the minimum velocity that you will have to play to hear the piano, it is present on a real piano.
The Dynamics curve changes the volume curve of the library.
The Sensitivity will set the minimum volume for velocity 1 and give you access to all the dynamics that you want.
