SONiVOX has announced the release of its new Grand Piano Virtual Instrument: Eighty Eight. It's available now with a MSRP of $199 for Windows and Mac OS X in Stand-alone and VST, AU and RTAS instrument plug-in formats.
Conceived and designed as an exceptional virtual embodiment of a Steinway CD 327 grand, Eighty Eight affords piano and keyboard players alike the opportunity to experience a world-class grand piano from the relative comfort and proximity of their digital audio workstation.
Exhaustively sampled and expertly voiced, Eighty Eight was recorded within the same acoustic confines as the SONiVOX Symphonic Collection, utilizing the same recording philosophy of the simplest signal chain with the highest quality A/D converters and mic pre's. The result is an instrument of "stunning clarity, finesse and power", according to SONiVOX.
The Eighty Eight package also provides a wealth of additional instruments, pads, and textures which, when taken as a whole, supply the composer a considerable arsenal of tools with which to serve and stimulate the creative muse.
