Piano Reverb TonePrints by Adam Holzman

This is arguably the most important type of effect in piano music, due to its foundation in natural acoustics. From the emergence of classical western music the construction of cathedrals, opera houses and concert halls played a natural role in shaping the timbre of classical music. This remains unchanged. What has changed is the ever-growing number of possibilities provided to us by the advances of the digital age. This TonePrint has one foot in each camp: On one side it has a nice, classical reverberation going on. On the other, it has a modulating reverb tail - The kind of effect Mozart never had the chance to play around with, unless he ever played the piano on a spinning plateau (something music historians deem unlikely).
