We announced it earlier this week, 8Dio was preparing a new piano collection for Kontakt with samples of a Yamaha C7. It is now available.

To record 1990 Studio Grand Piano, 8Dio used high-end gear, such as a custom Neve console in a “hi-tech” British studio, Neumann U87, KM 184, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon and AKG C414 microphones and two Bricasti M7 and TC 6000 reverbs. It results more than 48,000 samples that were recorded at 96 kHz and downsampled to 48 kHz.

8Dio captured up and down-pedal positions, staccato and staccatissimo notes with round robins and you can adjust the dynamics (ADSR), room sound and mechanical parts (hammer action, noises, pedal volume…). The two reverbs are also included as virtual pedals on which you can adjust pan, spread and volume and, evidently, you can adjust and mix the microphones.

1990 Studio Grand Piano requires the full version of Kontakt 5.3 and later. It is available for the introductory price of $199 instead of $249 until April 15th. You can listen to demos at 8dio.com.
