The Steinway Walnut Grand (complete) contains 3 microphone perspectives with up to 16 velocity layers in each perspective, release samples, true staccato, picked strings instruments, and piano effects with performance sounds.
As with all imperfect samples, natural performance elements are included, such as the sounds of the fingers touching the keys. No robots or sampling machines have been used.
Provided at full 24-bit audio fidelity, this grand piano sample library totals over 30GB of data (12GB download).
This is essentially three distinct Steinway Grand pianos in one package.
Mic Perspective 1: From the player's position, for an organic warm sound
Mic Perspective 2: Directly inside the instrument, for a clean sound
Mic Perspective 3: Far from the instrument, for increased reverb and a distant sound
Treat this sampled piano library like a live instrument; mix the perspectives like you would a live recording.
