naked demos :

Wrongtools wish to pay homage to the instrument that has started many musical careers by sampling it to great depths.

Michelsonne Paris was a French brand of toy piano manufactured from 1939 to 1970

The manufacturer didn’t think their small pianos was a “toy”-piano, so they called them Bell-tone pianos instead.  So do we.

We sampled a charming quirky refurbished model with a staggering 15 dynamic layers X 3rr, plus release triggers. There are also mechanical noises and quirks mapped to separate tracks. 

The library also includes other instruments where toy pianos tines have been prepared, played with motor-fan, and other treatments. 

Vintage Toy Pianos vary greatly in personality. The model for the flag-ship patch had wooden mechanics and hammers  (No  plastic). It has a mellow naturalness and full-bodied quirky personality.

Many professional toy-piano musicians and film composers prefer Michelsonne pianos because of their sound. Players include Pascal Comelade, Yann Tiersen and Timothée Jolly (source : wiki).

SOUND SCULPT

Explore new sonic and expressive possibilities with the  [FX] engine. Spark your imagination and create the cinematic beautifulness, presented in different XY-pad environments.

Working on a lighthearted, childlike composition, making a creepy horror score or a quirky romantic childish haze? You’ll probably find the sound you’re looking for here .

As we happen to own quite a few of these miniature pianos, we recorded them all, as a bonus. But the centerpiece, the Michelsonne Toy piano,  is full of delicate, expressive sounds. It’s our favourite patch in the library. 

Included toy pianos range from soft, gentle tones to playful quirky  seductively toy pianos variations. 

Moving river-like textures included

TIP : For instant creepy vibes, use the pitch-vibrato control, with a low vibrato speed. Choose and dial reverb according to taste. Maybe add one of the in-built spring-reverb IRs?

Wow. The description “Vintage Toy Pianos” seriously undersells this instrument and the depth and variety of sounds available.”

“This is one of the best toy piano libraries out there.”  -Thorwald
