Audio Brewers has released Pianoforte, a Fazioli F212 Recorded, Mixed and Delivered in Ambisonics and Stereo.
Pianoforte features Sustains, Una Corda, Muted and more than 20 Sound Design Pad articulations, everything in native Ambisonics as well as in Stereo.
This means that regardless of DAW or delivery method, Pianoforte can adapt to any speaker array configuration from Stereo all the way to Binaural, Surround, Atmos and even for VR applications and custom speaker arrays.
Each of the versions were worked on independently to get the best results for each microphone configuration.
The Stereo version contains multiple dedicated mixes as well as microphone positions whereas the Ambisonics version comes in Mix Perspectives, which are immersive mixes that will let you experience the Piano from different positions.
- Balanced Mix: A mix full of presence ready to be added on the foreground of a composition.
- Punchy Mix: A mix with a narrower image than Balanced but with punchier attacks that adapts to Jazz.
- Intimate Mix: A darker mix that goes well for background static chords of cinematic styles.
- Ears: A stereo pair placed at the musician's ear level.
- Frame: A stereo pair placed around the frame of the piano (where the hammers hit the strings).
- Soundboard: A stereo pair placed on the soundboard of the piano which captures all the body and resonance of the sound.
- Ambisonics Version.
- Balanced: A ready-to-play mix perspective that has great balance between immersion and realism.
- 'Musician': A RAW capture (in Ambisonics) from the Musician's bench.
- 'Soundboard': BE the piano, with this perspective sound comes all around you, as if you were right in the middle of the soundboard.
- 'Audience': The piano is in front of you as if you were the audience, great focus but a much narrower stereo image.
- 'RAW': A raw combination of Musician, Soundboard and Audience perspectives.
Pianoforte also comes with more than 20 sound design pads (designed from the piano itself) which, thanks to the versatile engine, can be blended with the sound of the Piano to experiment with new sounds and find new alternatives.
Pianoforte contains over 33,500 samples, 50GB (compressed from 110GB, lossless).
Intro Price: €79,00 until May 17th, 2021 (Reg. €149,00).
