You want to talk about raw power and dynamics, ok let?s do that:
TBO has 93 unique samples/recorded notes.
We are talking about 31 velocity layers pedal up, 31 pedal down and 31 release
Now why on earth does anyone want to produce a sampled piano of this size...??
Imagine playing a piano and only being allowed to hit keys with 8 different
strengths. Hard to implement, but think of what that should do to your playing
and inspiration. Think if the numbers of strength where limited to 4?.or maybe
if we go up to 12. Still, very frustrating for a pianist to hit a key ppp and
still get note with pp timbre. Or going from ppp to fff in a crescendo and only
get 5-6 transitions in between.
We at SampleTekk believe that having many velocity samples/note is what makes
a sampled piano realistic and inspiring to play.
Our earlier pianos, Black Grand, White Grand, White Sister and Vertikal all
has 16 layers pedal up and 16 pedal down, and to our knowledge, this is something
that we are alone to have.
But, now we set a new standard even to ourselves and give you a piano with 31
velocity samples per note. That is 31 pedal down, 31 pedal up and 31 matching
Besides great sound and almost seamless transitions when you go from soft to
brutal, what does this mean to your playing?
A piano is an incredibly versatile instrument! Just imagine, you can, on the
same instrument, play everything from "Great Balls of Fire" to "Adagio Cantabile"
and they both will come out great. The same instrument, the same location.
This is possible due to a pianos incredible dynamic range.
You can get so much out of a piano, just by playing it differently.
Listen to the first TBO demo, then listen to the fourth. Now, compare the sound.
Both demos where made using the same piano! Just by a different, softer playing,
you can get a very different character out of TBO, just like you could on a
This is what makes TBO unique!
Here's some demos:

Christmas is here, performed by Sue Keller
TBO is demanding on your system if you want to run the full piano. There will
be economy patches, but you should have a P4 3 GHz with 2Gb RAM to run the full
