No expenses have been spared in finding the right sounding instruments; the perfect sounding grand piano was found after auditioning more than ten candidates. The recordings were made using the best conditioned vintage tube microphones in studios complying with the highest demands regarding acoustics - capturing the instruments at several different perspectives, from close up with microphones next to the soundboard to far away perspective with natural room ambience. The result is a warm and vibrant sound.
The Studio Collection bundle offers three word-class instruments - Studio Grand, Modern Upright and Mark One. All instruments are available for purchase separately and the Studio Grand is also available as a free version. More instruments are to come.
