Cinematique Instruments has announced the release of Grand 3P for Kontakt 5+.
The Grand 3P is based on the famous Steinway A grand piano, a piano with a powerful and a warm sound. The Grand 3P is a versatile instrument - you'll find it suitable for film scores, classical music and contemporary pop as well as virtually any other music style that requires a great sounding piano.
In order to build a versatile and complex instrument there are many editing options. Besides regular tools such as reverb (with 5 different types), delay, speaker simulation and a four-band EQ there are other features available such as the Soft Vel, the Tone, the Bottom and the key option.
The key option gives you the ability to choose between the different mic positions and microphones that were used in the original recording session: Inside the Grand (Gefell MV691), outside the Grand (pair of Neumann KM149) and in the room (pair of Neumann KM184). This will let you decide about the amount of close miking and natural ambiance you want to use in your production (all notes with 9 velocity layer).
The Grand 3P comes with 20 different presets divided in the 3 categories 'Cinematique', 'Natural' and 'Effect' which gives you the ability to quickly dial your favourite sounds for your own music.
Kontakt 5.03 or higher full version is required.
