Where did this piano sample originally come from
« on: October 31, 2022, 23:26:27 »

I originally got this sample from a SNES soundfont, ( I then later found that it was taken from Super Tetris 3) but I really wish I had a better quality version of it. Can anyone identify the source of it?

also called triPixel on other sites btw

The attack sounds very similar to the typical Roland Piano samples of the early 90s (e.g. Piano 2 in the GM.DLS soundfont that ships with Windows, or from a Roland SC-55/88). There appears to be a bit of a volume and filter envelope applied to it, plus the last third or so of the waveform appears to be badly looped, so it looks like the sample was processed further and it will be difficult to achieve exactly the same sound, it will require a lot of guesswork. But depending on how close you need it to sound, taking Piano 2 from GM.DLS as a start should get you pretty far already.
