Sound Magic has announced the release of version 2.0 of GrandEpiano for Windows, which includes the following changes since Version 1.0:
- Using a New Neo Hybrid Modeling electric Piano to replace to 4 modules in Version 1.0.
- A Completely New Designed Effect System including Chorus, Reverb and Delay.
- Modulation can route to Pan in Version 2.
- Decrease in Size, from 150MB (Version 1) to 100MB (Version 2).
- Richer Sound in Version 2.
GrandEpiano presents the sounds from a classic Rhodes Electric Piano. By using Sound Magic Hybrid Modeling Technology, GrandEpiano not only provides an accurate copy of the vintage electric piano sounds that appear in many great hits, but also provides the playability that physical modeling brings. And, users are not limited to just the Rhodes - 10 precise controls allow musicians to easily enjoy the sounds of a Wurlitzer or perhaps a Horner.
An important feature of GrandEpiano is that users can freely "hybrid" this epiano sound with any of the piano modules in Supreme Piano 2 to create a new hybrid sound. GrandEpiano provides a special Hybrid Mode with 3 controls to help its users better mix the native electric sounds with those of other Sound Magic Pianos.
- NEO Hybrid Modeling Electric Pianos.
- Specially designed Modulation and Chorus Effect Unit.
- Internal Delay, Phaser, Chorus, Reverb and Compressor effect unit.
- Provides Vibrato, Tremolo and Auto Panner Modulation Effect.
- Unique Hybrid Mode enables GrandEpiano can hybrid with Sound Magic Pianos.
- Add-on System brings expansion possibilities to the instrument. Each Add-on focuses on solving one specific problem with the aim of a thorough, but quick, solution.
GrandEpiano costs €69.00. A Mac OS X version will be released in near future.
