Steiny D Close Grand sfzED - Classic Grand Piano


The magnificent Steinway D, recorded in a concerthall for the true concert grand experience.

The "Close" perspective was recorded with the microphones placed very close to the strings. Normally, this isn't the way you would record a classical piece, but you will find that this perspective gives you a great presence and brilliance. Try this version for an in-your-face pop or jazz sound, or for bold and aggressive features. Definitely reach for this version first on a live performance. It has the raw edge needed to cut through a pounding rhythm section, or to back up a powerful vocalist. The more live your playing space, the more likely that the Close Perspective instrument will work for you.
