Black Grand Medium Perspective


The magnificent Steinway D, recorded in a concerthall for the true concert grand experience. Three different perspectives, Close, Ambient and Medium Ambiance gives you tree different instruments to choose from. Incredible 48 samples/note cut's this sampled instrument in a class of it's own.


The "medium" perspective is taken using two microphones placed at a moderate distance from the instrument. This perspective works well for both classical and acoustic jazz recordings, where the perception of some room in the tone is desirable. Don't be afraid to try this version in places where you might consider the Close Perspective to be ideal. Sometimes a little distance on the piano can actually make it easier to bring up in the mix. Every mix is different, and the ultimate choice is always going to be a "mix thing."

“I was listening to some Suzanne Ciani at work the other day during my lunch hour. She is a huge figure in New Age piano. I also had a CD-R in the machine of some test pieces I had created using the Black Grand (Ambient Perspective). I had actually forgotten that CD was in the machine. When it started playing the Black Grand pieces, I was immediately struck by the fact that it sounded in the zone of the Ciani material, but actually much better - warmer, which for me is a good thing! So here was an unprocessed sampled piano - the Black Grand - sounding much better than a real piano which had been recorded and mastered in a million dollar studio. Amazing!
