Impact Soundworks has released version 2.0 of Pearl Concert Grand, a virtual piano instrument library for Native Instruments Kontakt and the free Kontakt Player.

This version features a total rewrite of the playback and performance engine along with new NKS support. There are now more options than ever for realistic pedaling and per-note tweaks.

Our flagship grand piano instrument features a beautifully-recorded Yamaha C7 with four microphone perspectives, each offering a unique and lush sound. Pearl is a true joy to play, edited and mixed to perfection and suitable for most any style of composition – classical pieces, cinematic works, pop, jazz, blues, and more. Pearl makes an excellent addition to any sample collection. If you’re like us, you’ll find yourself reaching for it every time.
