Imperial Grand starts with the "dark, rich Bosendorfer style sound," according to SM, and uses NEO Hybrid Modeling Engine coupled with Artificial Intelligence Assistant Tool.
The Artificial Intelligence Assistant Tool (A.I in short) will auto test your keyboard and then use artificial intelligence to make suggestions. A.I will test your keyboard velocity response, pedal support and suggest ways to shape the sound that you are looking for.
