SoundFonts.it has released Electric Grand EG70, a physical modeling simulation of a CP-70 electroacoustic baby grand touring piano.
This piano had a significant role in the pop music of the seventies and the eighties, featuring in songs by well known musicians like Stevie Wonder, Genesis, George Duke, Simple Minds, etc. It is now back on the stage thanks to the british band “Keane”, you can see it in the video of the song “Everybody’s changing”. Every modern digital keyboard offering a wide variety of timbres has a patch inspired to the sound of the CP piano, and sometimes it’s still preferred in genres like rock and pop where the producers want a brighter and more prominent piano sound.

- Full Polyphony (73 notes).
- Adjustable sympathetic resonances.
- Realistic response to keyboard dynamics.
- Adjustable global tuning.

- Stereo tremolo mode (auto-pan).
- Adjustable note decay and release lengths.
- Built-in stereo digital reverb.
- On-screen help tips and readout values.
