We spent a lot of time trying different piano plugins, racks and libraries. We've tried almost everything out there, from huge expensive libraries to simple VST plugins but we didn't find one that worked well for dance music… So we hit the studio and recorded gorgeous grand piano Shigeru Kawai™ VI.
All samples were recorded with an AKG C12 and Electro-Voice RE20 microphones, placed in multiple positions. We've carefully tweaked velocity and filtering setting to make it sound as natural as possible and reduce CPU usage.
“Grand Piano Racks” comes with 10 Instrument Racks that combine the live piano samples with various effects and processing. Each rack has useful Macro Controls for reverb, release, EQ, velocity and other settings. These piano racks has been carefully processed and modified to fit today's EDM sound.
Please note: additional drum sounds used in demo tracks are for demo purpose only. They are not included.
