Art Vista has launched the Hybrid Piano, a virtual piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt 5.
SUPERGRAND is a hybrid piano combining two bestselling Art Vista pianos and their special qualities into a completely new instrument where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.
The rich singing tone of the Malmsjö GVI sample is combined with the ubiquitous sound of the Steinway “B” sample from Art Vista Virtual Grand Piano 3 to various degrees – from a Malmsjö sound with a Steinway edge, to a Steinway sound with a touch of Malmsjö, never producing exactly a Malmsjö nor a Steinway sound.
The combination of the two pianos with such diametrically different sounds allows for piano sounds ranging from intimate to flamboyant. SUPERGRAND, with a combination of both offers a widened range of useablility as well as a unique piano sound.
Hybrid Piano for Kontakt 5 or higher (full version) is available for purchase for $99 USD.
