Acoustica has released Pianissimo, a Virtual Grand Piano, which they say delivers the sound and expressivenes of a classic grand piano in an affordable software package.
It operates as a VSTi plug-in, or runs as a stand-alone application, for Windows PCs.
The VSTi will operate in any DAW with support for virtual instruments in the VSTi format, including Mixcraft. The Stand-Alone version supports any MIDI device, and any Wave, ASIO, or WaveRT device. It allows for two track recording, loading and saving of standard MIDI Type 1 files, and supports mixing down to WAV, MP3, WMA, and OGG Vorbis files.
- Features 250MB of high-quality, quadruple-strike samples from a Steinway™ Model D grand piano, enhanced with acoustic modeling technology to produce a rich, warm, expressive, and highly realistic grand piano sound.
- integrated studio reverb creates a highly realistic ambience that places the piano within a true acoustic space.
- sample programming creates a fluid, dynamic, expressive tone without identifiable velocity switching or other digital artifacts.
- sympathetic resonance modeling recreates the subtle shimmer of piano strings when the damper pedal is depressed.
- Adjustable incidental piano sounds, including mechanical noises from damper pedal and key release.
- 256 voices of polyphony and low CPU usage.
- Adjustable piano lid, velocity curve, tone controls, sympathetic resonance, reverb, and chorus effect.
- Works in all major digital audio recording software packages (including Mixcraft™) as a VSTi plug-in instrument.
- Stand-alone version features metronome, two-track sequencer, and ability to mix down recordings to WAV, MP3, WMA, or OGG Vorbis audio files.
