Sampleson has released MetaPiano, a spectral modeled grand piano built upon real sound captures from a Japanese concert grand piano and meticulously rebuilt by math algorithms.
For its creation Sampleson captured every detail of the real instrument in a peaceful studio in Patagonia:
The mountains and solitary landscape gave the right scenario to meticulously record notes, resonances, and mechanical noises, to be used for feeding the Sampleson Spectral Engine 2.0.
Why is Sampleson doing spectral modeling?
Because it's a technique that produces highly accurate results. It provides a much closer sound representation of the real instrument (than other modeling techniques) to the brain's perception because it's based on the real waveforms and not in mathematical estimations.
The most realistic modeled Grand Piano nowadays. It features full decay for every note (you'll find up to 90 seconds of decay in the lowest notes, without loops). No velocity switching. No noise. And a small footprint. With these characteristics, a sampled Grand Piano plugin should weigh at least 30 Gb. Sampleson did it in only 60 MB.
