Orchestral Grand Piano is a realistic "contextual" piano designed specifically to fit within your full orchestral arrangements. Having recorded it in one of the greatest studios in the world Spitfire Audio are confident it will fit in with any palette.
Spitfire Audio says "Pianos tend to be recorded in a very scientific manner which is why, for larger orchestral mockups and realisations they can often be very difficult to blend in and mix. You will have no such problems here. We simply recorded the piano as we have the rest of our modules. In situ, a real-world setting with mics placed as they would be for any orchestral session. The end result a piano sounding as it would, where it would be and recorded as it would be for any of the great film scores to have been recorded in Air-Studios Lyndhurst Hall."
Recorded through classic vintage mics to 2" tape, both the analogue and direct digital signal are selectable. 4 true round robins expandable to 12 scripted with 4 controllable mic positions (C(lose), T(ree), O(utrigger) & A(mbient) & New preset velocity curves.
The Orchestral Grand Piano is available until the 18th April, 2012, at the introductory price of £39.
This library requires a full version of native instruments Kontakt to run.
Spitfire Audio has also announced Steven Devine's Harpsichord, which is "soon to hit our shelves".
Spitfire Audio says "Steven Devine graced us with the presence of his beautiful Harpsichord (the soundboard of which makes up this product's artwork) enthusiasm, passion and detailed practical advise to complete our latest module. This is the latest in what we call our "definitive" range of commercial instruments, recorded with multi mic selection in the splendour of the world-famous Air-Studios, Lyndhurst Hall. Our aim with the Harp and Percussion modules was to provide a one-stop-shop within their category. The best in field, future proofed against technical advances, the last harp, the last Orchestral Percussion library you need buy. And now the Harpsichord; Recorded in staggering detail and the result of 6 months of detailed programming and scripting we hope you agree this is the only VI Harpsichord you ever need own."
