Sound Magic has released Imperial Grand3D, a virtual piano instrument for Windows.
Huge Sound – Small Footprint: The Imperial Grand3D starts with the famous bright, rich Bosendorfer style sound, and establishes an incredible level of realism by using patented Hybrid Modeling Technology coupled with complete 3D Audio control.
Physical modeling is at the heart of the Imperial Grand3D sound, but both sampling and synthesis are incorporated to add to the realism. Multiple DVDs, Out of Memory errors and glitches are ancient history. Only 150MB in size, the authentic harmonic colorations of the Imperial Grand3D bring an unmatched depth of sound to any style of music.
