Topic: Astonishing video featuring harmonic pedal's effects

Here is the video itself:

Examples of how it sounds is in its last half. I wonder: can it be properly simulated in Pianoteq? I tried to employ Harmonic pedal type it has in the list, but it doesn't produce the same sound as you can hear in video - this magnificent, powerful, almost organ-like long sound. What am I missing here?

Quoting Bambers' post from PW forum: "Should be noted that the parts at the end aren't the harmonic pedal as such but just the sympathetic resonance isolated entirely, presumably through recording twice, with and without damper and subtracting."

Re: Astonishing video featuring harmonic pedal's effects

The first thing that came to mind as I listened to this post was to create "pad effects" in a second instance of Pianoteq layered with a primary Pianoteq piano preset.  Altering the spectral content would produce a wide range of secondary or background layers.  This, of course, would be an enhanced "Harmonic Pedal" setting.  Future stuff maybe.

I posted that video-link days ago but people didn't opined about these isolated sounds.

Pianoteq could have a option to allow we sellet only certain types of sound, ressonances, sounds origineted only from string sympathec ressonance, or only from body ressonace, soundboard sounds, or only the sound of the hamer-hitted strings, and perhaps choose the desired octaves for each one of these proposed features. We could have the option to choose one or more feature.
