NY Grand S274

NY Grand S274 is based on robot-assisted deep multisampling of a 9' Steinway & Sons New York D-274 concert grand piano, a majestic musical instrument known to be the pinnacle of concert grands and the overwhelming choice of the world's greatest pianists, according to its legendary manufacturer.

The Steinway & Sons New York D-274 concert grand piano is the largest and most popular model in the Steinway line. Introduced in 1884, it's been used by some of the world's greatest pianists including Vladimir Horowitz, Artur Rubinstein and Alicia de Larrocha.

Known for its rich, powerful sound and its ability to project well in large concert halls, the D-274 is also prized for its responsive action, allowing pianists to achieve a wide range of dynamics and articulation. If you've always wanted to try one, the NY Grand S274 is your chance.

On this concert grand we used DPA cardioid microphones for the close miking and DPA Omni microphones for medium-distanced with A-B miking technique to record this spectacular piano at the legendary Fonoprint Studios in Bologna, Italy, within the walls of a 15th century convent.

In addition to many IK sample sessions over the years, Fonoprint has hosted the very best Italian and international artists from Ennio Morricone to Luciano Pavarotti to Andrea Bocelli.
