For decades, the Yamaha C7 grand piano has been a mainstay of top recording studios, appearing on countless recordings and giving a host of artists their signature sound. With K-Sounds Signature Piano, the C7 becomes your signature sound. Offering pristine stereo samples throughout the dynamic range and a slightly ambient studio sound with plenty of sustain, this piano is designed to inspire from the first note. Signature Piano offers two sample banks, both fully programmed in a variety of voices and performances: The large 495Mb bank provides up to eight velocity layers in a single piano sound – double what is typically available for traditional workstation keyboards. True-sampled damper resonance adds a lush quality to sustained notes. Release resonance and hammer noise samples* provide extra authenticity to the end of every note. A 113Mb bank is also provided for quick loading. Impressive in its own right, it features 4 sampled velocities plus damper resonance!
Signature Piano offers a unique implementation of sympathetic resonance heard when the damper pedal is pressed: Real sampled resonance is provided – far surpassing mere digital effects or convolution. And because the resonance is presented as an independent component of the instrument, its volume may be adjusted, and it can be disabled entirely.
At K-Sounds, we believe the most important requirement of a virtual piano is that it be refreshingly playable. That’s why Signature Piano was played constantly during its development process. The result is far greater than just a collection of samples. We believe it is one of the most musical and playable sampled pianos available.
