the fragile sound



This is not your standard, polished piano. Sampled humanly from a small Scandinavian upright (missing the bottom octave), it has a very warm and intimate tone. If you loved Nils Frahm’s ‘Felt’, you’ll love Lekko, too.
Besides the soft sustains, you’ll also get characterful shorts (going from a hand-muted sound to full ringing) and irregular, unsynced tremolos, allowing you to create organic swirl of notes based on the chords you play.
Both sustains and shorts have 5 repetition samples per every sampled note so every time you hit a key, the sound changes subtly. This adds a lot to the realism of the instrument, not only when playing repeating patterns.


the afterglow



the acoustic part is complimented by a collection of bespoke afterglow patches, created by processing the recordings with rare vintage hardware and tape.
Inspired by modern sound design of soundtracks like Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s ‘Chernobyl’ and Geoff Barrow’s and Ben Salisbury’s work on ‘Annihilation’,
it’s a collection of bespoke patches that evoke that dusty, analogue vibe, ranging from fragile and soft to dirty remains of the original signal.
