Sound Magic Imperial Grand

Sound Magic has announced the release of Imperial Grand with Neo Piano Hybrid Modelling Engine, the successor of the “Imperial Grand” virtual piano instrument.

Imperial Grand starts with the famous dark, rich Bösendorfer tone. By using the newly developed Neo Piano Engine, Imperial Grand reproduces the magnificent dynamic and various timbre colors of a Bösendorfer 290 SE.

The unique feature of Imperial Grand is that you can forge your own sound with it. Through our online customize sound system, you can easily forge your personal sound. You not only get a standard Bösendorfer sound ,but also get a sound fit for your taste. And more important, other Imperial Grand users do not have this sound because it is customized for you only. This makes Imperial Grand unique to you and cannot duplicate. It will become your “secret ” weapon in your music production.

Neo Piano features a custom built Hybrid DFD/RAM system. It is a very flexible system which can be optimized for different playing applications. If you are using an old system with low RAM,DFD will work well. If you are using a top performance 64bit system with plenty of RAM, you can choose to play Neo Piano totally from RAM. A balance of DFD and RAM samples can be utilized to optimize general performance. In All cases Sound Quality remains at the highest level. For live stage performances, the entire piano sample set can be loaded into RAM, removing any worries about OS interference with Hard Disc access. For Studio and Composition use, DFD is ideal with modern computers.

A major breakthrough in Neo Piano Engine is the resonance engine. Every Grand Piano has a very large soundboard which reflects sound which resonates together with the piano’s wood body. This is a continuous process and makes every note sound unique. In order to simulate this behavior, Sound Magic first captures multi angle IRs from the soundboard, then applies ground-breaking technology to convert those IRs into Resonance Engine Algorithms. The result is an amazing concert hall sound reproduction full of life.

Imperial Grand for Windows and Mac (VST/AU) is available for purchase for 129 EUR/$169 USD/£105 GBP.

Sound Magic releases Dynamic Bundle

Sound Magic Dynamic Bundle

Sound Magic has announced Dynamic Bundle, a collection of 5 dynamic processing plug-ins at a discounted price.

Neo Loudness is a comprehensive tool designed to control loudness. Neo Loudness not only includes traditional compressors and limiters, but it also features a new type of Maximizer.

Neo Dynamic is a new concept in dynamic processing technology. Different from ordinary compressors/limiters, Neo Dynamic not only offers more sonic variety than traditional units, it is far easier to use. Neo Dynamic starts with 10 compressors/limiters, modeled after famous brand names such as SSL,API,TubeTech and so on. Each of these has their own famous “flavors” ready to use.

Neo Preamp is reminiscent of a vintage channel strip which not only boosts or cuts the audio signal, but also add “things” to it. People like to remember that this or that particular vintage gear added a certain color to their recordings – and this is exactly what Neo Preamp does.

Neo Transient is a new concept for level independent dynamic processing. Unlike common compressors and limiters, Neo Transient reacts on Transients – those short peaks in the audio signal – rather than the overall signal loudness level. In this way, Neo Transient creates an entirely new way to process your tracks.

Meter Man is a plug-in features different K-System Meters.

The bundle is available for purchase for 199 EUR. Existing users who have already purchased any plug-in in the dynamic bundle can upgrade by paying the difference.
