Vienna Grand Piano of the Galaxy II Piano Collection

Galaxy II's Vienna Grand is comprised of sampling a BOESENDORFER IMPERIAL 290 grand piano. Established by Ignaz Bösendorfer in 1828, Bösendorfer is the oldest piano manufacturer still in production and has a history of constructing some of the worlds finest instruments. The Model 290 Imperial, a 9'6" grand piano, is famous for its powerful soundboard and its extended keyboard; going as far as a bottom C0, making a full eight octave range or 97 keys.

The Vienna Grand is alternatively available with two other pianos (Steinway and German Baby Grand) as GALAXY II Grand Piano Collection.

Galaxy II's Vienna Grand is comprised of sampling a BOESENDORFER IMPERIAL 290 grand piano. Established by Ignaz Bösendorfer in 1828, Bösendorfer is the oldest piano manufacturer still in production and has a history of constructing some of the worlds finest instruments. The Model 290 Imperial, a 9'6" grand piano, is famous for its powerful soundboard and its extended keyboard; going as far as a bottom C0, making a full eight octave range or 97 keys. Sometimes, these extra keys are hidden under a small hinged lid, on others, the colours of the extra white keys are reversed (black instead of white). The extra keys are primarily added for increased resonance from the associated strings; that is, they vibrate sympathetically with other strings whenever the damper pedal is depressed thus creating a fuller tone. With the VIENNA GRAND they are playable.

The Vienna Grand was recorded at Hansahaus Studios/Germany which is famous for its outstanding Jazz Recordings and has received two Grammy Awards. We placed great emphasis on capturing the Bösendorfers huge dynamic range and energy, especially its powerful low end; using additional microphones in the lower register:

  • Vienna Grand Imperial (96 Key Bösendorfer with incredible low end).
  • More than 2,000 samples in 24-bit.
  • 13 modeled velocity zones for a wide and smooth dynamic rang.

  • Chromatic and multiple velocity resonance and release samples.
  • Multi velocity pedal, damper, hammer and string noises.
  • Real una corda samples.

  • Intelligent EQ for warmth, punch and brilliance.
  • Sympathetic string resonance with real overtones.
  • Flexible and easy-to-use velocity editor.
