Yamaha CP80 Electric Grand is one of the best digital grand pianos. A specialist from Yamaha was invited to create this instrument. Some effects were applied on this virtual instrument – flanger, tremolo, chorus and others.
Nordiska Pianofabriken- has a certain individual sound. Typical piano tones are breathtaking in the virtual piano model. Rock, blues, jazz and other styles sound great on it. In this model, detailing is clearly visible when sampling the sound.
Neuman microphones were made to special order for recording grand pianos.
