    ProAudioVault's Bluthner Released

    Bluthners have one of the the most distinctive tones of all pianos. Proaudiovault's samples of the Bluthner Model One concert grand are sanctoned by the company.

    Demos are here. The proprietay Timbral Impulses are claimed to be capable of altering the character of the instrument.

    Competitive Comparison

    I posted several comparisons of Blüthner Digital Model One and other sampled pianos - these include audio commentary by Dan.

    Example 1 comparison of the sustain richness (pedal down samples) in the tone (6.3Meg's) http://www.proaudiovault.com/BDMO_Comparison_ex1.mp3

    Example 3 is an excerpt from Debussy's Arabesque No. 1 in E that is used for a comparison of richness and low level detail of the BDMO versus several other prominent digital pianos (6.3Meg's) http://www.proaudiovault.com/BDMO_Comparison_ex3.mp3

    Very interested in the Blüthner - anyone here tried it yet?

    Judging by the audio demonstrations, it sounds really impressive compared to others piano libraries.

    A question, can it be used for Hip-Hop and Urban music instrumentals ? I mean in many playing style, including hard hitting of the keys to get the big hammer sound ?

    Thanks for reading, and keep up the good work.

    Is this a Kontakt library, or a standalone plugin VI based on the Kontakt player? (And if so, is it VST only, or AU as well?)

    I believe this is a Kontakt Player 2 product (full blown Kontakt 2 not needed to use it.)

    The Blüthner Dgital Model One is a Kontakt 2 player that can work in stand-alone mode or in AVST, Audio Units, RTAS, DXi, Core Audio, ASIO and Direct Sound.

    The timbral, sustain, and reverb impulses are an embedded script that add these features in the K2 Player engine

    Probably not the best choice for slam-bam-thank-you-ma'am repertoire. You might want to listen to Norman Durkee's Gospel demo near the bottom of the proaudiovault home page. To my ears the Model One becomes unmusical when slammed.

    I'd agree with the assessment that the BDMO is not a bright sounding piano, but this is the whole beauty behind the Blüthner Model One - it is not supposed to be. In fact, it is designed not to be bright. You can play it as hard as physically possible (we did), and it never gets edgy or strident. This warmth and lack of harshness translates over to the BDMO. Think of it as a departure from the sampled piano norm. For film and legit music (which seem to be topics of focus on this site) the BDMO gives you all these soft layers to work with that are not found in other digital pianos. In addition, Ernest has created a whopping 260 timbral impulses to vary the tone of this instrument, so you have many, many choices of tone.

    IMO that's the BDMO's strength - along with a unique piano voice.
