Shadowlord – NieR Gestalt & Replicant Piano Collections, music by Keiichi Okabe, arranged by Keigo Hoashi, played by Richard Yang on Yamaha N1X with Garritan CFX.
I originally recorded the piece with the stock CFX sound on Yamaha N1X (link HERE) before re-recording with Garritan CFX. You can hear the huge difference in sound quality!
“Shadowlord” is definitely not the right name to describe this beautiful melody. I could only wish there were more variations of this melody to really expand the piece into something bigger.
NieR Gestalt & Replicant Piano Collections is such a beautiful album with mostly intermediate arrangements. It is so beautiful I had to wait until I got my Yamaha N1X to record the album with direct audio instead of my regular set up with the iPhone mic. This album is considerably easier than the NieR Automata album, which I will release after this one. But being easier does not take the beauty away from the music. Some of the favorite tracks are Song of the Ancients, Grandma, Gods Bound by Rules, and Ashes of Dreams.
