it sounds the same beacuse it's the same, this has been taken from the record of X&Y, it's not an emulation or something like that, it's his sound :) you won't find it in any keyboard, i'm running the piano through the computer, when i press the button on the piano i'm just muting it, then I raise the volume ;)

^ Can you play a Coldplay song (which ever you can/want to) with these organ sounds and upload the video/audio somewhere? :wacko: I would love to know how it sounds on other songs! :bomb:

^ somehow I knew it would sound awful! :lol: Probably a jumbled mess of organ sounds :laugh3:

Although I believe it could sound OK on slow songs like "Proof", "Gravity" and "Easy to Please" maybe :anxious:

But thank you so much for posting a video! :dance:

Yes it sounds good but I still think that Yamaha's DGX are good alternatives. I use Cool! Organ and for the later part Cool! Organ + Church Organ using the dual mode and to me it still sounds like it.

The sound has been professionally sampled from the x&y recordings, extracting the single notes from the chords. My video has been recorded with a camera, if I upload the mp3 file from the mixer out i bet it won't sound the same as you say :p this is the same sound used by chris martin, if you want an audio file you will hear the difference...so i'm using a computer, doesn't matter the piano, the keyboard, the model or whatever you want, it will sound the same, it's a matter of sample

I'm trying to find the right sound on my keyboard, but it definitely doesn't come as close as your sound.

did you employ someone to sample it for you or did you do it yourself? :p

I'm so going to try this when I get home from orchestra rehearsals tomorrow.

Am I right in saying this sound was also used in Strawberry Swing? It's heard slightly in the studio version, but it's a lot more audible in the instrumental.

Hulsey your'e right. :) although it's not the exact preset there.
btw You can also hear the organ sound on Lost! & In My Place (verse background sound).

I made a little experiment few mins ago with "NI vintage organs" VST and tried to get the Fixyou sound on it. I couldn't get the exact sound but I'm quite satisfied anyway. it's reeealy fun song to play and sing.
I uploaded it:

These are the settings if anyone interested:

Another really interesting and unique sound is Chris's piano (the one he use for paradise -live).

Nice I would like to try that later on FL studio thanks for sharing, wish you can reupload.
Also, for Paradise Chris uses a special electric piano sound, not different from the rest of his other common piano sounds. I think you mean the synthesizer at the beggining of paradise and I think that's what Jonny plays on the keyboards on live versions...

Please, could you explain the process you did to get that? (That means software and other features).

I'd really like to learn how to.

:) CHEERS and BLESSINGS! :)

He bought a soundpack that I'm assuming was the one that Chris's piano is based on and he just transferred the sounds via MIDI/USB to the piano. That or he played it back on a computer.
