Blue Grand starts with the robust Steinway sound, utilizing these powerful harmonics to create the authenticity and complexity that has long been a standard in concert halls around the world.
Blue Grand has captured the highly resonant wooden body flavor of a vintage Steinway built in 1927 and also managed to represent its unique singing tone through Sympathetic Resonance and soundboard resonant. It is a very emotional piano with great dynamics.
Sound Magic's Neo Piano Hybrid Modeling Engine is a new way to offer the realistic sound of sampling and the playability of modeling. The NEO Hybrid Modeling Engine provides a small footprint, low latency and a true, rich sound.
The unique feature of Blue Grand is that you can forge your own sound with it. Through our online customize sound system, you can easily forge your personal sound. You not only get a standard Bösendorfer sound, but also get a sound fit for your taste. And more important, other Imperial Grand users do not have this sound because it is customized for you only. This makes Imperial Grand unique to you and cannot duplicate. It will become your "secret " weapon in your music production.
Neo Piano features a custom built Hybrid DFD/RAM system. It is a very flexible system which can be optimized for different playing applications. If you are using an old system with low RAM, DFD will work well. If you are using a top performance 64-bit system with plenty of RAM, you can choose to play Neo Piano totally from RAM. A balance of DFD and RAM samples can be utilized to optimize general performance. In All cases Sound Quality remains at the highest level. For live stage performances, the entire piano sample set can be loaded into RAM, removing any worries about OS interference with Hard Disc access. For Studio and Composition use, DFD is ideal with modern computers.
A major breakthrough in Neo Piano Engine is the resonance engine. Every Grand Piano has a very large soundboard which reflects sound which resonates together 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 first captures multi angle IRs from the soundboard, then applies new technology to convert those IRs into Resonance Engine Algorithms. The result is a concert hall sound reproduction full of life.
