Hi all, here's the product blurb, I'll be posting demos later today, all of those who preordered will have their copies shipped today
NEW ! GS3 24 Bit Features :
This version of our library was not ported from GS2, this is a totally reprogrammed from the ground up library, the addition of almost unlimited dimensions in GS3 permits now 32 transition velocities (16 pedal up / 16 pedal down) instead of the 16 in GS2, what this translates into for the users is much smoother transitions from one velocity to another specially in the softer velocities where special attention was given to ensure better response when playing very softly. Obviously 24 bits does sound better and will cut through a mix easier when mixed in with other instruments.
As in the other version of the library you get 3 recorded perspectives, Ambient, Close Miked and Player Perspective in 12 recorded velocities (32 transition velocities) with Release Samples, Pedal Noises Fx and 2 new sets of impulses body resonance and bridge resonance.
One of the most important if not the most crucial elements of this new version is that we actually went back to the studio where we initially recorded the library to capture Pedal Up and Pedal Down Body resonance and Bridge resonance impulses to use in conjunction with GS3's most powerful and innovative feature, the embedded Gigapulse Pro convolution engine. These were taken from the actual Piano used to record the library, yes you heard right 2 different sets of impulses ! The bridge resonance impulses sound a little brighter and the Body resonance impulses sound much darker giving you 2 different options of Resonance emulation, these really do make a huge difference in realism, in conjunction with Pedal Fx noises, this library at the special introductory price of $149.95 is in our opinion the most complete Yamaha C7 Grand Piano library ever created.
System Requirements for the library are the same as Tascam GS3's recommended system requirements :
Pentium VI 2.8GHz Processor or AMD 3200 XP Processor (Library works with a AMD 2600 XP Processor with the Gigapulse convolution engine running 2 instances for the Pedal Up and Pedal Down resonance impulses, if you are not using Gigapulse a AMD XP 1700 or Intel P4 1.4 ghz or higher cpu will work fine)
