SMALL PIANO. BIG SOUND.
The Small Upright sound library features a six-octave model 1001 piano by August Hoffman, a renowned Swedish brand with lineage tracing back to the late 1800s. This specific instrument is often referred to as the Bambino and was built in the 1970s. Due to its small size, it produces a distinct, focused tone perfectly suited to cut through in any mix. Still to this day, and despite the fact that its since long out of production, the inimitable timbre of the August Hoffman Bambino can be heard in songs by many top indie pop, rock and alternative bands.

EFFECT CHAIN PRESETS – OVERVIEW
The included signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud. You can control each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.
- Basic - The default sound. The basic piano sound slightly tweaked with controls for EQ, reverb, key and pedal noise.
- Raw Tweaks - A true bypass preset that represents what the piano sounded like from the raw recording. Also, in this preset, you can adjust the level of hammer, sustain pedal and releases as well as detune the piano.
- Basic Acoustic - Another natural sounding setting with adjustable EQ, room reverb and hammer noise.
- Kingston Spring - Slight amounts of tape compression and saturation give character to this preset. Combined with the vintage spring reverb, you can give your sound a true Jamaican flavor.
- The Flower - Polished 70s ballad piano. Tweak to your liking with EQ, compression and reverb.
- Social Club - A lot less polished, more throaty sound. Lots of room ambience available. Adjustable EQ, ambience, tape drive and hammer noise take you to another musical dimension.
- POP - A brighter setting with EQ, reverb and chorus controls at your disposal.

- Chorus and Delay - This preset features an adjustable tempo synchronized delay along with a classic chorus. The EQ lets you go from mellow to bright.
- Delay and Compression - Another synchronized delay. This time along with EQ and compression controls.
- Taste of 90s - A bright, heavily processed, mid-scooped piano with compressed attack. Control the chorus EQ and delay. Made to cut through in the busiest of mixes.
