Imperfect Samples Steinway 1908 Walnut Concert Grand
Imperfect Samples has released the Steinway 1908 Walnut Concert Grand, a 24 bit multi-sampled imperfect concert grand piano.
Including 4 microphone perspectives, modelled sympathetic resonance, sampled resonance harmonics, half-pedalling, true staccato and true crotchet articulations, piano effects, piano body wood knocks, and lid sounds, this instrument totals over 54GB of data.
The emphasis is placed on a realistic and imperfect performance, IS say. The sounds of the fingers tapping the ivory keys, the pedal, subtle mechanical sounds, keys hitting the felt above the keyboard, have all been recorded.
This is the first imperfect sample library to feature the IS Advanced Engine, a Kontakt interface with modelled sympathetic resonance and a variety of live controls.
