V2 adds many fixes and a new GUI.


  • 5.95 GB (lossless compressed) library size, 4688 samples.
  • 4 microphone sets: Royer ribbon Blumlein and Spaced, Neumann M149 mono and Oktava stereo room set.
  • 8 sustaining dynamic layers, chromatically sampled.
  • 4 release trails layers, chromatically sampled.
  • independently controllable sustain-pedal resonances.
  • key-release noise for added authenticity.
  • sustain-pedal down and up noise layers.
  • sampled with Millennia, Neve, SSL and Focusrite preamps fed direct into Apogee converters.
  • all of the details of the piano recreated through the use of our custom advanced scripting.
  • recorded at 24-bit / 96 kHz, released at 24-bit / 44.1 kHz.
  • easy-to-use mixer for extreme sound-mangling.

Kontakt engine features:

  • custom User Interface.
  • velocity curve management.
  • piano tone control, makes the piano sound softer or harder under your fingers.
  • custom touch response control: set at minimum you'll get the full sound of the piano with added latency (good for mixing), at higher levels cuts more and more into the piano pre-attack portion allowing for very low perceived latency when needed (good for tracking and live playing).
  • fine-tuned three-band EQ for each channel.
  • many under the hood techniques to make the piano true to the original (life-like re-pedaling, release trails attenuation, intelligent attenuation of each single dynamic layer for maximum dynamic response...).
  • master realism control and specific control over release trails, key off, resonances and pedal noise levels.
  • envelope controls.
  • 17 custom, high quality IR reverbs.
  • 22 (+ 22) compressor + tape presets.
  • 23 factory presets + user-savable presets.
  • works as stand-alone, AAX, RTAS, AU and VST for Mac and PC.
