The Seven Seas Grand, 7CG, sets new standards when it comes to sampled pianos.
Recorded close, for details, nuances and contour, using vintage Neumann tube microphones for warmth, is what gives 7CG it's unique character.
A piano is one of the most dynamic instruments there is. This is why a piano can be used in so many different musical genres. It has such a dynamic range!
The only way to capture that range in a natural way is to record extremely many velocity samples. From the softest pianissimo, to the fiercest forte, and all in between.
7CG has no less then 93 samples/recorded note! That's 31 pedal up, 31 pedal down and 31 release samples. This is something that totally unique for SampleTekk and this is what makes 7CG breathe!
