I have finished uploading a playable demo of the EMPEROR to my website. It´s a WinRar compressed 310 B file, that extracts to a 800 MB playable gig file with all 12 velocity layers, both pedal up and pedal down. The file uses accelerated wave files for efficiency (lower CPU, disk transfers and to keep file size down).The file will remain there untill my monthly data bandwidth is consumed.
You can download the file from:
There are two GigaStudio performance files in the installer that demonstrate how to set up the piano in gs2.
The first one loads the 12 layer pedal up instrument in midi port one, the 12 layer pedal down instrument in midi port 2 and the release instrument in midi port 3. If you link all 3 midi ports you play the full piano.
The second gsp file loads the 8 layer (pedal up and pedal down) instrument in slot 1 and the releases in slot 2. In slot 3 I inserted an extra sustain pedal fx with a little short reverb that avoids the abrupt cutoff when the sustain pedal is released, what normally sounds rather un-realsitic.
*Note that some of the wav files will be cleaned during the next week so the demo file can have some artifacts that will not appear in the final disc.
