Sound Magic releases Piano One - Free Grand Piano for OS X and Windows 64-Bit

Sound Magic

Sound Magic has announced the release of its free grand piano, Piano One, for Mac OS X and Windows 64-bit. Besides the previous Windows version, Piano One now provides:

  • Native Windows 64-Bit VSTi Version.
  • AudioUnit 32-Bit/64-Bit Version for OS X.
  • VST 32-Bit/64-Bit Version for OS X.

The Sound of Piano One comes from the Yamaha C7 concert grand, a true workhorse in the professional piano world, appearing on famous concert stages, in international competitions and in prestigious music events throughout the world.

By utilizing the Sound Magic Hybrid Modeling Engine, Piano One offers both the realistic sound of sampling and the playability of modeling. Hybrid Modeling provides an instantaneous feeling - no delay - and a truer and richer sound than can be created with either sampling or modeling alone, says Sound Magic. What's more, Piano One utilizes only 150MB, which is quite a small footprint, making Piano One usable even on older PCs. There is no waiting time when loading and the CPU usage is so small that it's virtually unnoticeable.

I cannot seem to get this plugin running, despite installing the runtime package (for mac) twice, both for VST and au, and placing the files in the correct subfolders.

I had the same problem. New iMac with Lion, no problems with any other audio software.

I remember Piano One existed for Windows only, much before this advertisement. Perhaps the mac versions aren't built correctly, or are fakes. How strange...

Same here until i installed the "MSPRuntime" package, works on my MAC now.

There's a link for MSPRuntime on their download page just above the Piano1 downloads for MAC icons.

22 April 2012 at 7:32pm

I installed the runtime environment, but the instrument is still not detected by any of my sequencers.

Hey synchronizer,

Per the instructions MAC Users should not install the runtime included in the Piano1 download, but to download and install the separate MSPRuntime installer: http://www.supremepiano.com/download/MSPRuntime.pkg

While piano1 does load and play in my daw, unfortunately it's causing digital performer 6 to crash. ymmv

Hope this helps.

I tried that, and the plugin still doesn't seem to work. It's not a huge loss, but I still would like to try Piano One.

23 April 2012 at 2:16am

Hey again synchronizer,

Not sure what's going on.

I've tried it in Digital Performer 6 and the latest release of Reaper and it loads and plays though it crashes DP6 and in the latest release of Reaper (Demo) it simply locks up/freezes when i close the Piano1 window.

I am running Mac OS 10.6.8, not sure if that makes any difference?

Can't find a link for support on their website.

23 April 2012 at 2:22am

It sounds like the plugin doesn't function in either case.

sorry about the silly question, but after i install msp runtime, should i install first the audio unit or the VST ?
