The magnificent Steinway D, recorded in a concerthall for the true concert grand experience. Three different perspectives, Close, Ambient and Medium Ambiance gives you tree different instruments to choose from.
Incredible 48 samples/note (36 for Gigastudio 2), cut's this sampled instrument in a class of its own.
The total size of the Black Grand library is over 18Gb! (24 bit version, 12 Gb 16 bit version) Each perspective are over 6Gb (4 Gb 16 bit version)
Each Black Grand perspective has ten different patches, each one providing you with a different set or subset of the full sample set. Since the Black Grand has so many discrete samples, we can further fine-tune the instrument by shaving samples off the top or bottom of the range—yet still have enough samples mapped to give a fully-expressive playing experience. Once you have found the best perspective for your task-at-hand, you can further refine the “match” by experimenting with the different patches. Sometimes, you may find that less is more in a particular setting!
Black Grand is recorded using the finest equipment available, with a specially-designed digital recording technique to give you an unequalled performance and sound.
You are about to play a sampled piano that delivers expression never before matched in the world of samples.
•Gigastudio 2/3, Kontakt or HALion 2.0/3.0 16 or 24 bit
•System minimum (16 bit version): Pentium III 800 GHz with 1 Gb RAM
•System minimum (24 bit version): Pentium IV 1GHz with 1.5Gb RAM
•Recommended: Pentium IV 1.4GHz with 1.5Gb RAM
The following demos where made using HALion 3, but HALion 2 would have delivered the same perfomance.
No editing where made to the demos, just the Black Grand, nothing else.
