I found this vintage reel to reel recorder at a thrift store and made a FREE DECENT SAMPLER LIBRARY

I was browsing through a thrift store when I came across a vintage reel-to-reel tape recorder. I was curious to try it out, so I bought it and took it home. When I plugged it in, I was surprised to find that it still worked! I decided to use it to make a “tape piano” sample library. First, I recorded myself playing some simple melodies on the piano.

Then, I transferred the recordings to my computer and edited them into individual samples. Finally, I created a free website where people can download the samples. I’m really happy with the results, and I hope other people will enjoy using the library too!

Reverb Tank Violin

A reverb tank, as the name implies, is an enclosure that contains a sound chamber and a reservoir for water. The instrument’s body vibrates in much the same way as it does when any other bow is used to play an acoustic guitar.

The internal springs of a cello vibrate as the instrument is played, causing the interior springs to shake. This generates a one-of-a-kind, sympathetic reverberation that does not exist in traditional violins.

The reverb tank is an essential part of the violin’s unique sound. Adding a small amount of reverberation, gives the violin a richer, fuller sound that is both familiar and disorienting. The tank also helps to give the violin a warmer, more melancholic tone that can be unsettling.

However, it is important to keep the reverb tank clean and dust-free so that it does not affect the quality of the sound. With proper care, the reverb tank can help to create a unique and powerful sound that is perfect for any musical setting.
