Sound Magic has released Piano One version 5.0, an update to the free piano instrument that now uses the latest engine utilized in Sound Magic’s commercial pianos.

It comes with a new GUI with 4K resolution support and many improvements and minor changes.

Piano One comes from the Yamaha C7 concert grand, a true workhorse in the professional piano world, appearing on famous concert stages, in international competitions and in prestigious music events throughout the world.

By utilizing the Sound Magic Hybrid Modelling Engine, Piano One offers both the Realistic Sound of Sampling and the Playability of Modelling. Hybrid Modelling provides an instantaneous feeling – no delay – and a truer and richer sound than can be created with either sampling or modelling alone.

Piano One is a free download for Windows and Mac in VST and AU plugin formats.
