Impact Soundworks Pearl Concert Grand is a virtual grand piano instrument featuring a deeply-sampled Yamaha C7 recorded in a concert hall with four microphone perspectives. Developed exclusively for Kontakt and Kontakt Player, Pearl can be used in most any DAW supporting VST, AU, RTAS, or AAX plugin formats.
To capture the full range of the Yamaha C7, Pearl includes over 14,000 samples provided at 16-bit and 24-bit fidelity:
- Chromatic sampling of all 88 keys.
- 8 dynamic layers.
- 2 round robins.
- Sustain pedal on & off samples.
- Chromatic key & pedal release noises.
- Close, pedal, stage, and hall mic perspectives.
The Kontakt engine for Pearl provides users with extensive control over mixing, effects, and "under-the-hood" settings. Each microphone position can be independently mixed (volume, stereo) with per-channel routing, EQ, and compression. A global, analog-modeled effects rack is included as well, with tape saturation, compression, EQ and convolution reverb with more than 30 custom impulse responses designed just for Pearl.
Full control over the instrument's velocity response curve and tuning is available, allowing advanced users to create custom curves, scales, and microtuning. Several dozen presets are also provided allowing for easy switching between common curves, scales, and full-instrument timbres.
