FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HAUSCHKA COMPOSER TOOLKIT

WHAT SOUNDS ARE EACH OF THE GRIDS MADE UP OF?

PLUG HITS - Single hits across the whole range of the piano, made using objects such as wood mutes to create percussive sounds. 

PLUG RHYTHMS - In this grid, each of the plug hits preparations has its own rhythm, recorded at 2 tempos: 90BPM and 120BPM.

PAD SOUNDS - Preparations such as ping pong balls and tea lights resonating on the piano strings to create pad-like sounds. These patches make use of the Pedal FX mic and the Modular FX mic to create beautiful sustained textures. 

PAD HITS - Some preparations of the piano have long decays, sampled in conjunction with FX chains to create longer one shot hits. 

SWELLS - Featuring Mallet, Octave, and Single Key and made up of notes that swell and weave in and out of each other to create beautiful dynamic textures. Recorded in four variations — Long, Longest, Short and Shortest. 

DRUM KITS - Our most atonal, percussive patches, in which Hauschka turns the whole range of the grand piano into a drum kit, virtually unrecognisable from the original instrument.

WHAT IS AN EVO GRID?

Evolutions are hyper-long articulations that change sometimes subtly, sometimes radically over time before looping. We organise these on a grid so you can plot which evolution or ‘Evo’ sits on each of key range, recorded across 12 intervals, and arranged on an 11 x 12 grid. Enjoy instant gratification with an ever changing kaleidoscope of progressive articulations, with infinite possible combinations.
