    When will the next Garritan Steinway come?

    Hello,
    in my manual I can see that there a plans to develop futher Garritan Steinway products like:

    Parlor Grand - Model A
    Music Room Grand - Model B
    Small Concert Grand - Model C

    I really love the Garritan Steinway D in the big hall, but I really miss a Steinway in a smaller room for Jazz and so on. I know I can use the 'close' version, but it is not the same as if the has been recorded in a smaller space.

    Regards,
    Metuschelach

    Hello Metuschelach,

    The Steinway Model B has just recently been recorded at
    Skywalker Studios, and now the people with the Garritan
    Team are doing what it takes to create a sampled product
    of the "real thing".

    It will be a while since there is a ton of tweaking involved.

    In the full Pro version of the Steinway, the mod wheel controls the amount of room ambience. With the wheel all the way up (cc1 turned up to 127) the notes are completely dry, zero ambience, so that the size of room can be completely controlled by the user via a reverb plugin.

    Some calculation: 3 models by 88 keys by 7 layers (pp>>fff) by .....

    .. anyhow less than a ton.

    That doesn't even begin to sum up what's involved And fyi the closest thing we have to layers is how many samples we record per note (more than 100 not including multiple mics). Our piano player Richard I think is still traumatized by the memory

    Anyway, the only thing we've announced so far is that we recorded a Steinway B at Skywalker Studios in late January. And it's in development. As there's more news, I'll keep everyone up to date. However I don't expect there will be public news soon on the B- everything is internal at this point.

    You can check out a post Gary made at Skywalker.

    If you are interested, the Skywalker Sound studio web page is
    http://www.skysound.com/
    It's a pretty amazing place. If you're interested only in the studio you can see
    http://www.skysound.com/sound_music.html
    One of the best studios in the world. The scoring stage is a mid size room as you can see. The acoustics are excellent. After 12 hour days I would stay past for an hour or more, all the sudden feeling relaxed rather than tired - just because it's so very rare to have those kind of conditions: the piano, the voicing, regulation and tuning, and of course the acoustics ...
