    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? I would love to know how it sounds on other songs!

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

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

    But thank you so much for posting a video!

    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 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?

    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.
