I play the piano and use FL with Keyscape to record my songs/cover.. But the sound seems very cold, expecially in mid frequencies, so:could you please help me to understand what I should do to improve it? Thanks :) This is an example of the sound I obtain (no EQ, only factory settings of Keyscape) :

  • As I read it, the audio is „raw“, i.e. without any further post-processing, yet. // Adding the audio effect „chorus“ may make the recording sound more interesting. Also consider applying „room effects“, like „middle sized room“.

Perhaps the issue is the recorded piano which doesn’t match your taste. The Keyscape piano is a Yamaha C7 which I consider quite bright (too bright according to my tastes).

Some other virtual pianos are mellower (Hamburg Steinway, CFX, Bechstein, Bösendorfer…) I have many of them, don’t use much the different C7 I have. The Bechstein Digital Grand has a bright/mellow knob and I like to set it more on the mellow side.

Perhaps also a too dry sound can be enhanced by a reverb, but it won’t help if what you don’t like is the brightness.


Check this out:

He goes through a whole bunch of different effects to make a sampled piano sound better. It's in Ableton but FL has equivalent filters and effects.
