Sound Magic has released BlueStone Piano, a virtual piano instrument for Windows.
BlueStone Piano starts with the robust Steinway sound, utilizing these powerful harmonics to create the unsurpassed authenticity and complexity that has long been a standard in concert halls around the world.
BlueStone Piano has successfully captured the highly resonant wooden body flavor of a vintage Steinway build in 1927 and also managed to represents its unique singing tone through Sympathetic Resonance and soundboard resonant. It is a very emotional piano with great dynamic.
