Electric Grand EG70 is a physical modeling simulation of a CP-70 electro-acoustic baby grand touring piano. EG70 has a very natural response to keyboard dynamics and to the player's style. You'll hear the benefits of physical modeling mostly when the sustain pedal is in use. The sound is warm and metallic at the same time, unpredictable, rich and natural like only a real piano can be.

Main features:

  • Full Polyphony (73 notes).
  • Adjustable sympathetic resonances.
  • Realistic response to keyboard dynamics.
  • Adjustable global tuning.
  • Four dynamic curves available.
  • Realistic control panel with active EQ and Tremolo effect.
  • Stereo tremolo mode (auto-pan).
  • Adjustable note decay and release lengths.
  • Built-in stereo digital reverb.
  • On-screen help tips and readout values.
  • Low memory and CPU power needed.
  • Easy MIDI-Learn feature.

INTRO

GSI's EG70 (Electric Grand) is an excellent physical modeling simulation of the Yamaha CP-70 electro-acoustic baby grand touring piano. It has a tiny footprint, uses no samples, and sounds fantastic. Back in the day, I owned an authentic CP-70, and I can say without hesitation that this nails the sound almost to a tee. I do own a good sample version of the CP-70, and of course it sounds just like it. However, this physical modeled version is able to reproduce a remarkable natural response that is warm, yet clear and dynamic – very playable.

The interface is simple, yet boast a powerful control panel that enables the user to adjust the decay, release, and resonance, as well as shaping the tone with an active three band EQ (bass, mid, and treble tone). There is also a built-in tremolo and reverb.

FAVORITE FEATURES

  • Clean GUI with easily accessible controls.
  • No need for a manual.
  • CPU friendly.
  • Stable (has never crashed my DAW).
  • Sounds great (nice blend of warmth and chime).
  • Polyphonic throughout the 73 keys.
  • Realistic response to keyboard dynamics.
  • Excellent sustain pedal.
  • Adjustable global tuning.
  • Innovative and responsive developer.
  • Good price.

OTHER THOUGHTS

  • The original was designed for portability. Well, you can't get more portable than this.
  • I'd like to see GSI re-create more vintage keys.

CONCLUSION

GSI's EG70 is an accurate physical modeled recreation of one of the greatest touring instruments of all time. It wonderfully replicates the string vibration, pickups, and resonance of the original. I would say it's at least 98% of the original tone, and that's not bad — not bad at all! The EG70 extremely playable and great sounding — just enough metallic sound to cut through a mix without overpowering the other tracks. Suffice to say, this plugin only does one thing, but it does it incredibly well! I highly recommend this virtual electro-acoustic baby grand to any eMusician, producer, film/game scorer, DJ, etc., who is looking for that unmistakable timeless sound and feel. Tommy Zai gives the EG70 two chords up. Thank you, GSI, for creating such a masterful version of a classic.
