E-Instruments Pure Piano Walkthrough and Comparison with Ravenscroft & American D (3 FREE Copies!)

E-Instruments Pure Piano Walkthrough and Comparison with Ravenscroft & American D (3 FREE Copies!)

I finally got round to doing my Pure Piano vid, and really enjoyed the process. Pure Piano is an excellent grand piano with a unique morph pad allowing experimental sounds such as pad sounds, reverse, percussive styles and intimate sounds somewhat similar to a Felt Piano. In this video I walk you through all the features, and give you a detailed comparison of how this sounds with some of the other best iOS Pianos: Ravenscroft 275 and the Korg Module Ivory American D. This video will be very helpful in letting you decide whether if you still have one or both of those, Pure Piano is still worth buying or not.

**I want to give my huge thanks to our very own Michael Levy for providing the beautiful jazzy improv midi I use for this comparison, Some of you may know him as LinearLineman. Michael is not only very talented but also extremely prolific. You can check out hundreds of his improvisations at https://soundcloud.com/michael-levy-387395070

I have 3 copies of Pure Piano to give away to subscribers to the channel. Details of how to win are in the pinned comment at the top of the Youtube comments section. Winners will be announced 2-3 days after release of the video. Good luck!

  • This will be a premiere so feel free to join the live chat. Hopefully someone from e-instruments can join us but I am not sure yet if they can. Would be great if @LinearLineman can make it to bask in the glory of people’s reaction to how beautiful the midi he gave me to use here is. This starts at 3.30pm UK time, 4.30pm Berlin time, and lasts for roughly 35 mins.

  • This will be fun to watch and yep this time I'll check if I get lucky :smiley:

  • Cool, can't wait for this one! Still haven't bought any of the IOS pianos yet

  • I'm in a team call then :D, but if I can't make it to the premiere, I'll watch it later. Looking very much forward to that.

  • I have the beathawk piano and am really tempted by this. Looking forward to the vid, cheers @Gavinski 👍

  • I can’t believe you have gone this long worth out getting a piano Aleyas! See you there

    @Samu @FloRi89 @rud good stuff lads, the premiere is about to start any minute now

  • Caught the tail end of the live feed.. just finished the replay.. good stuff @Gavinski..
    Having Michael’s piece for the comparison was excellent.. Pure Piano sounds great to me.. The morph pad is the ticket.. tons of potential..
    Thanks for the demo.. 👍

  • I'm using both Pure and Ravenscroft, and I'd agree with Gavinski's final assessment. For me, Pure sits well in bigger mixes where there's a lot of other things going on. It has nice weight and presence. Ravenscroft does well when the piano is the featured sound -- more detailed and elegant, which can get crushed in a denser mix.

    Sorry I missed the premiere, Gavin. Excellent job. I agree, the missing string res on Pure Piano needs to be corrected. Hopefully, e-instruments will address that soon. I agree the bass is clearer, out of the box, with PP as opposed to Ravenscroft. I do like Module AmD a lot, however. For now I’ll be sticking with PP.

    And thanks for the praise. Glad it showed up for this particular review. Much appreciation for what you do.

    Oh Mike, I was so happy to he able to use your beautiful music here, it just made my vid! ❤️

  • Interesting decision to ship this with stretch tuning. Left me a little 🤔 until I worked out what was ‘amiss’. I’d describe Pure’s tone as clean and ‘direct’ with not much complexity to the sound. Its treble sings better than any iOS piano I’ve tried so it’s my first choice for a band-mix piano.

    Ravenscroft 275 by comparison sounds more diffuse / distant and may be better suited to ambient. But it’s surprising how much timbral diversity can be extracted by those few dials.

    I don’t own Am D but it sounds a little strident and compressed to my ears. I’m sure it’s not in person as it seems to be well liked here.

    Let’s not forget the other Pure - the Upright IAP in PureSynth Platinum. It’s lovely for what it is.

    Thorough and entertaining video @Gavinski. Face reveal at 5k subs?

    Yeah, for solo it is hard to beat Ravenscroft, though many might want to fatten and tidy up its bass wor

  • Good observations, and tally with my own pretty much. Face reveal? Doubtful. Hand reveal if you’re lucky. Face reveal, maybe at 50k 😛> @onkey said:

  • I’ll settle for a hand reveal. Think early @thesoundtestroom.

  • You’re getting the noggin’ working here, maybe I need to get a few synth hotties in my vids to up the sub curve lol
