FS - Piano Accompaniment / Practice Tools

Hello everyone. While I am working on building my library of recordings and creating a website, I wanted to make my piano accompaniment recordings available to the community. Each release contains two versions of the piece, one at practice tempos, and one at performance tempos, both in ultra high fidelity FLAC and MP3 formats. Each version contains click tracks, both hard clicks and hiss, as well as a click free recording. I will maintain this classified as I release additional tracks.

This was recorded on a Steinway D with Lewitt microphones. I am very excited and pleased with the final result. You get almost 500mb of high quality audio for $5.

I've decided to go with BuyMeACoffee until I can build my website. This is a very new process for me, so if you want to take the plunge and check out my recordings, I would greatly appreciate your feedback on how the process was -- I'm not entirely in love with the idea of using BuyMeACoffee. I am 100% confident in the recordings, just the process of selling them is new to me. You pay for access to the download link and the password to decrypt the 7z zip file. *7zip or similar software is required to open the .7z archive file*.

The piano accompaniment for Andante and Allegro, by J.E. Barat, is now out. Thank you all for your support and interest so far!
This interpretation was inspired by a photo of a woman crossing the street in the rain, and we went from there. As with the first release, two distinct recordings were made, each with various click and non-click files included.

I have a BuyMeACoffee account, but I've never actually used it for anything. It was neat to see what the process was like. I'd say it was very easy and straightforward - I have no particular complaints. I would also say that doing a couple of individual transactions on the platform isn't bad, but it may get cumbersome as you scale out the number of recordings available (it sounds like you have a plan for a website, so that point is probably moot long-term).

These are great, by the way. Really looking forward to spending some time with them. Also looking forward to future releases.

Thank you so much for the feedback. I'm glad the process works, and I already had a feeling the Buy Me a Coffee platform wouldn't be the best long term solution. Hopefully it can be just a temporary spot to park my page.

Enjoy the music!

Just put up Liszt's Hosannah as a promotional sample on my page and on my YouTube. Link is up in the main post, above. Again, I greatly appreciate any feedback if you take the time to download it.

I decided to make this one a promotion for a few reasons. First, we only did one version for this one -- there is no practice or alternative interpretation. Second, I didn't want to mess with Schott's copyright and their version that we all know, so this does not contain the prelude that we are all used to, only the original piece. Third, who doesn't like free stuff?

Enjoy!
