AcustiX Digital Instruments has released the AcustiX Steinway Piano III in Kontakt format.
Here's what they say: "The AcustiX Steinway Piano is the result of the challenge to create a top-quality digital concert piano with rich and realistic sound, whose tonal precision and dynamic qualities rival those of a real, quality acoustic concert grand piano. The result is an sampled piano with powerful bass, crystal clear mid-range and brilliant treble. Especially in the fortes, this piano is extremely bright, loaded with overtones."
The AcustiX Steinway Piano was created with the smaller equipped music workstation in mind, without compromising on sound quality. This piano uses only 74 MB of carefully selected samples from 2 famous Steinway Grand Pianos blended together. AcustiX say that this makes it the ideal choice for orchestration setups where the piano part has to survive between the other instruments tending to occupy a lot of acoustic space (piano concertos, pop, jazz, rock, hip-hop, blues).
A free trial version is available at www.acustix.tk (reduced sample set, but unlimited in time).
Price: 39.95 €.
