Sound Magic has released Ruby Grand, a modeled Yamaha C7 Grand Piano. The Ruby Grand is designed with a custom-built Neo Piano Hybrid DFD/RAM system and optimized carefully to each piano.
A major part in Neo Piano is the resonance engine. Every Grand Piano has a very large soundboard which reflects sound that resonates along with the piano's wood body—this is a continuous process and makes every note sound unique. In order to simulate this behavior, Sound Magic captured multi angle IRs from the soundboard, then use modeling technology to convert those IRs into Resonance Engine Algorithms. The result is a concert hall sound reproduction full of life. This is enhanced with control over 40 unique piano aspects. Users will have the ability to lift the lid, alter the dampers, change the velocity response, apply a 'style' or resonance, adjust the player/audience perspective, and more.
