The Signature Grand is a 9ft Model D concert grand piano recorded in a beautiful auditorium / stage. The instrument naturally stands out in film and classic applications, but the user can create sound to suit almost any playing style.
What makes our piano different from others? Our instrument impresses with 3D realism thanks to a unique sampling and scripting process that captures beautiful early reflections of the recording space. By mixing the two microphone perspectives, the user can find the perfect balance between near and room microphones, and control the overall ambience of the space with our release controls.
The Signature Grand is a deep sampling instrument with over 3000 samples in 24-bit format, 10 dynamic levels per note, two microphone perspectives and multi-rate mechanical noises. Advanced features include re-pedaling, half-pedaling, and various sympathetic resonances. Designed by Emmy-winning composer Garth Neustadter, over 60 presets include film covers, classical, jazz and pop styles. Designed for the full version of Kontakt 5 or 6 (download only). The tool will not work with the free version of Kontakt.
