Imperfect Samples releases Fazioli Ebony Concert Grand for EXS24 & Kontakt

Imperfect Samples

Imperfect Samples has announced the release of the Fazioli Ebony Concert Grand, a 24-bit multi-sampled imperfect grand piano. Including 5 microphone perspectives, up to 127 layers, true staccato, direct picked strings, effects, piano body wood knocks, seat and lid sounds, and true crotchet, totaling just over 70,000 samples.

As with all imperfect samples' instruments, the emphasis is placed on a realistic and imperfect performance. The sounds of the fingers tapping the ivory keys, the pedal, subtle mechanical sounds, keys hitting the felt above the keyboard, have all been recorded. And occasional seat noise, has been recorded in order to preserve as much of a life-like performance as possible. This is what is referred to as "imperfect".

This instrument has been imperfectly sampled and includes perfectly sampled options. Essentially 10 grand pianos in one, this grand piano sounds warm and organic, and is suitable for situations where an expensive but imperfect sound is required without sterility.

One of the major benefits of Imperfect Samples' Fazioli Ebony Concert Grand, is its additional microphone perspectives:

  1. Microphone perspective 1 has been recorded 2 inches from the soundboard, for a warm sound from the player's perspective.
  2. Perspective 2 has been recorded inside the lid, for a clean sound.
  3. Perspective 3 has been recorded 2 metres away from the grand, to capture the room sound.
  4. Perspective 4 was recorded close to the hammers, for a punchy, wide stereo sound.
  5. Perspective 5 was recorded underneath the piano using a pick-up, for an unusual, dry, bright sound.

These five microphone perspectives provide very different sounds, but have identical start times, which means this sample library can be mixed like a live grand piano.

Features:

  • Multi-Sampled Instrument with performance sounds.
  • 5 Mic Positions.
  • Up to 127 Layers.
  • Over 70,000 unique samples.

  • True Staccato
  • True Crotchet.
  • Direct Picked Strings Instruments.

  • Organic, Imperfect Sound Character.

The Imperfect Samples Fazioli Ebony Concert Grand is available as a direct download, on DVDs, and on a portable Hard Disk Drive.
