a top-notch rendition of the Yamaha CP80 compact electric grand piano.
sampled direct from the output to a Millennia preamp and Apogee converter.
all of the details of the piano recreated through the use of our custom advanced scripting.
recorded at 24-bit / 96 kHz, released at 24-bit / 44.1 kHz.
dry recordings allows for maximum flexibility and sound design, either using Kontakt's own effect or your choice of third party plug-ins.
Kontakt engine features:
custom User Interface.
velocity curve management.
piano tone control, makes the sound softer or harder under your fingers.
custom touch responsecontrol: set at minimum you'll get the full sound of the piano with added latency (good for mixing), at higher levels cuts more and more into the piano pre-attack portion allowing for very low perceived latency when needed (good for tracking and live playing).
modeling of the original tremolo wave shape and depth.
three-band EQ inspired by the original.
many under the hood techniques to make the piano true to the original (life-like re-pedaling, release trails attenuation, intelligent attenuation of each single dynamic layer for maximum dynamic response...).
master realism control and specific control over release trails, key off, resonances and pedal noise levels.
full effects section with preset compressor, distortion, amplifier, chorus/phaser/flanger, delay and IR reverb.
17 custom, high quality IR reverbs.
