Fracture Sounds has released Midnight Grand - a Steinway D concert grand piano, recorded in a concert hall with a layer of cotton between the hammers and strings, to create a delicate, cinematic tone.
As with many other Fracture Sounds libraries, Midnight Grand features specially designed 'Atmosphere Layers' – playable pads and textures which blend together with the raw piano to create rich, cinematic soundscapes:
- The 'Haze' layer adds a smooth, dreamy sustain.
- The 'Shivers' layer is a textural pad, created from processed live string recordings.
- The 'Eclipse' layer is a rich reversed granular delay effect, which lingers behind the raw piano.
These layers can be dialled in to taste using the Layer Mixer. Additionally, the global 'intensity' of these layers can be controlled using the 'Atmosphere Intensity' dial, or automated in real-time using the mod wheel.
Also provided are key release and pedal samples, adjustable 'room tone' for adding the natural sound of a real recording environment, and a 'colour' control to dial in the right tone for your composition.
Midnight Grand is available at special early bird pricing until January 28th - £49.00 instead of £69.00 (+VAT where applicable).
