Sound Magic has announced Pianist, a revolutionary effects unit that has been specially designed to give you control of your piano tracks/recordings.

Unlike other effects units we see every day, Pianist has been designed with the piano in mind, efficiently shaping the sound of your keyboard tracks – with the same ease and control you’d have with any other Virtual Instrument.

Pianist is not just a simple combination of EQ and Dynamic effects, it is a revolutionary tool combining several of Sound Magic’s acclaimed technologies. Pianist includes Sound Magic’s Award Winning Modeling Technology, Neo EQ technology and Neo Reverb technology. The precision and ease of use of these cutting edge systems combine to bring you unheard of control in creating the sound you need.

Pianist is designed around a simple 3 step system. First, color your piano sound, changing the darkness or airiness to fit the room, the song, the ideal. Next, adjust the dynamics, change from hard hitting thunder to dancing pianissimo. The special desgined compressor here can help you fit your piano track into any style of music! Finally, play with the space – move it around, left and right, create lush reverbs, tighten it up with a small club feel. All of these operations are easy to understand – no complicated technical terms, no engineering degree needed!
