Heavyocity releases Ascend: Modern Grand for Kontakt Player with Intro Offer

Heavyocity

Heavyocity Media has released Ascend: Modern Grand, a new cinematic grand piano virtual instrument for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.

Ascend is a deeply-sampled nine-foot Concert D. Recorded at a historic NYC studio, the Heavyocity team chose to sample this specific grand piano because of its warmth, depth, and detail. This is the cinematic composer's opportunity to play one of the finest pianos Heavyocity has ever heard.

Here's what Heavyocity says:

"Intending to push the grandest of grand pianos even further, Heavyocity explored new ways of evoking sound from this nine-foot frame: first, capturing several prepared performances (brushes, hammers, ebows, chains, and twine) and then, developing an all-new engine to bring these sounds to life. The Ascend engine is a new world to explore -- complete with a library of rhythmic convolutions and dozens of layerable sources and FX. The Three Point Mixer provides an intuitive platform to blend sources, and the Echoes feature accompanies your performances with a musical randomness."

As a "powered-by-Kontakt" instrument, Ascend: Modern Grand offers all playback and sound-shaping functionality through the full version of Kontakt 6 or the free Kontakt 6 Player.

Price: $149 USD - $119 USD until October 11, 2019 at www.heavyocity.com/ascend.
