The page for keyboard players

My name is Thorsten Hillmann and I've been making music on the keys since I was 10 years old. After organ lessons (yes, I can actually still play a bit of foot bass) and the Entertainer Keyboard, a teacher eventually managed to get me to play the piano.

Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time for a good classical education at the age of 17 and became a keyboardist rather than a pianist. Did it really harm my musical development? We will never know. 

The logical consequence of my musical career was the first workstation (a Yamaha EX7) and the first band around 1997. It was really cool!

Over the years I have played in several bands with my own songs and also cover bands. Since I've accumulated a lot of repertoire, I came up with the idea of passing on my cover sounds, since most people only want one thing:

Play!!! Programming takes time, isn't necessarily easy and some people don't want to or can't be bothered with it.

I can provide you with sounds from the live musician directly for the stage for the following devices: Korg Kronos/Nautilus, Yamaha Modx+/Montage M, Kurzweil PC4, Roland Fantom, Studiologic Numa X Piano, Nord Stage 3, GigPerformer and MainStage with various plug-ins (Korg Collection 3, Studiologic Numa Player, Roland XV5080, Arturia V7 Collection!

My main job then led me to buy my first 3D printer and design accessories for keyboarders. You can currently get Ipad and NanoPad2 holders for various devices from me. The portfolio is constantly being expanded. If you have an idea that I haven't had yet, please get in touch. We'll work on something together: 
I would also be happy to help you customize a multicore for your equipment.

I'm currently on the road with my bands Covernatixx and as a sub on big and small stages. The rest of the time, besides my main job, I take care of my sounds, tutorials, give workshops and do sports to keep fit. Being fit should not be a triviality as a musician.

I would be delighted if one or the other finds something helpful here and takes a look again. There is always something new to see.

Keep on Rocking

Thorsten Hillmann
