The new Grandioso YAMAHA C7 is finally released. We also finally updated our website with some great new demos, including the Purgatory test. Listen HERE!
The library is available in our on-line shop with an introduction offer of $195 (expiring June 23th). We have the Giga-version on 1 DVD. Kontakt release will follow soon and CD-versions will be avilable too.
You can find more info about our products and the on-line shop on our PMI website
I just try to make the most realistic piano sample possible. In case of the Yamaha C7 this was rather easy as this piano is very bright and even, so our programming was limited. The Maple/Grandioso FX plug-in does the rest.
System requirements for the Kontakt setup?
I\'m playing at this very moment on my \"worst case\" system: PII, 866 MHz, 511 MB RAM, ASUS SUSL2 MOBO, and still get 40 stereo voices, with release samples with the disk streaming enabled.
If you disable streaming you would need a full 2 GB RAM, though that would -in theary- give you the full 250 voices.
<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">System requirements for playing the instrument are one thing. Doing a mixdown, in a host such as Cubase SX is another thing.
This week I got the 16-bit Kontakt version of the PMI Bosendorfer. With the GStudio version, I can use the capture function, and then import the track into Cubase, and all is well.
With Kontakt, there is no capture function, so hence the need to do a mixdown. I\'ve discovered that I don\'t have the horsepower to do this successfully.
So, now I\'m going to upgrade my computer - which will provide other benefits, as well. I like the Kontakt version much better. Better filters etc. (And of course, I will want to run the 24-bit version, which will require even more horsepower.)
My son is pleased by this development, since he has \"designs\" on my old system!
