Impact Soundworks has launched Pearl, a concert grand piano instrument for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Impact Soundworks Pearl Grand Concert

Our flagship grand piano instrument for KONTAKT and KONTAKT PLAYER 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 sports eight dynamic layers, two round robin variations per note, chromatic sampling, key & pedal release noises, and pedal on & off recordings, with a choice of 16-bit or high-fidelity 24-bit samples – nearly 40gb of compressed audio! Starting at the incredible price of $99 (through April 21st), Pearl makes an excellent addition to any sample collection. If you’re like us, you’ll find yourself reaching for it every time.
