K-Sounds Epic Grand

K-Sounds has announced the release of Epic Grand for the Yamaha Motif XF/MOXF and Motif XS, featuring detailed stereo samples of a Japanese grand piano.

Epic Grand was designed with quality in mind. The samples were recorded and edited at 176.4kHz, 24 / 32 bits, then converted to Motif-compatible specifications for the final product. A close mic position was used, creating an up-front, studio sound. The stereo image is wide, centered, and mono-compatible. Every note has a generous, natural-sounding sustain.

Two bank sizes are included. The 505Mb bank offers eight sampled dynamic levels for realistic dynamic response across the keyboard. Additional independent elements such as damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noise samples bring the piano to life. The 126Mb bank includes four sampled dynamic layers plus damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noises.

Epic Grand’s damper resonance samples are true recordings of the sympathetic string resonance heard when notes are played with the damper pedal down. Sampling the actual resonance of a real piano provides authenticity that surpasses digital effects and convolution. This resonance is presented as an independent component of the instrument, allowing users to adjust its volume or disable it altogether.

Epic Grand is designed to be incredibly playable. It was constantly played during its development to ensure that it responds dynamically and musically.
