The Grand Piano library features a historical pianoforte built by Erard 1873 in London. This unique piano offers charming and warm yet present sound far from your usual piano suspects, full of character, breathing and dripping with life.

Remaining in good condition in the collection of Andreas Beurmann, it is now available for the first time for your sampler within the Grand Piano library, presented in its original tuning at 435 Hz (presets in 440 Hz are included as well).

To deliver the ultimate grand piano experience in your studio, we captured the sound with 32 velocity layers of each note for great dynamics, feel and  sound. This addresses a common problems often associated with digital sample pianos: The playing feel and sound of only a few layers is nothing like the real deal.

Furthermore, we recorded the release sounds of each key in 8 varitions to complete the experience of the instrument. In addition to the samples, the Grand Piano library contains an essay in German by Dr. Andreas Beurmann, explaining the background of the instrument.

The sample library contains nearly 3.300 single samples.

Presets are included for HAlion®, Kontakt® (full version required) and EXS24® software samplers.

For the recording of this piano, we employed vintage Neumann™ TLM-170® microphones in conjunction with Crane Song™ Flamingo® preamps and Universal Audio™ 2192® digital converters. The instrument was recorded at 192 kHz/24 bits, downsampled to your resolution of choice.
