UVI Soundsource releases Baby Grand Piano

UVI Baby Grand Piano

UVI Soundsource has released Baby Grand Piano, a 6 GB piano sample library by Ultimate Sound Bank.

After the success of our UVI SoundPack Acoustic Grand Piano, we felt it was time to come up with something slightly different. So back in the road we were looking for a piano with sound and history. We did visit a serious amount of ancient piano addicts. As for the Acoustic Grand Piano, the alchemy is not easy to find, and we did try several models and places until we found the right one. During our investigation we fell in love with a gorgeous baby grand piano built in 1930 by the manufacturer Erard. This is one of the “smallest grand piano” ever built, and it sounds incredibly large in regard to its size.

Baby Grand Piano features

  • The piano was recorded in place, using quality microphones, mic pre and analog to digital converters.
  • Every single note was carefully multi-sampled in multiple (up to 8) velocity levels.
  • A special technique was used to capture the true sound when playing with the sustain pedal, to add another level of realism.
  • Sustain pedal and release samples perform and “feel” like a real piano like with UVI Engine advanced keygroup layers and rule switching.

Baby Grand Piano is available as a digital download for $69 USD.

Ultimate Sound Bank Acoustic Piano

Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank has released Acoustic Piano, a new UVI Soundpack.

Acoustic Piano features surely one of the best sounding sampled pianos in the market. True to our beliefs, we don’t think it’s about figures (like velocity , memory, number of mikes) but about feeling. A good sounding piano is a rare alchemy between the instrument, the acoustic in the recording studio, the microphones and above all, the engineer’s taste.

Acoustic Piano features

  • Steinway D recorded at Guillaume Tell Studio
  • 2.5GB library, every single note was carefully multi-sampled at multiple velocity levels for both normal playing and with the sustain pedal pressed.
  • UVI Engine advanced keygroup layers and rule switching provides for the sustain pedal and release samples to perform and “feel” like a real piano.
