Antisample has released Cinematic Grand, a virtual piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.
We chromatically sampled each of the 88 notes of an expertly tuned Yamaha C2 concert grand piano at 5 velocity layers per note each with key release samples and additional sustain pedal noises for a smoothly cinematic and realistic sound while keeping the instrument CPU and RAM streamlined for real-time playability and use in large projects.
You can freely adjust the sound of the dry recorded samples with our custom 10-band Equalizer, add one of three hand selected reverbs and delay or change the listening position from player to audience – all with the click of a button in our custom interface. You can also choose from four pre-defined velocity response presets to further suit your playing and recording style. All of the effect parameters are fully automatable to give you even more flexibility to shape the sound of the piano at the DAW level or in real time using hardware controllers.
