Native Instruments Upright Piano [2 DVD][KONTAKT]
The Soul of The Piano
The UPRIGHT PIANO is ideal for productions that derive their charm from little eccentricities and imperfections. When something other than the "perfect" piano sound is required, this Powered by Kontakt instrument offers a distinctly charismatic signature sound - perfect for use in a broad range of styles including blues, jazz, country, pop and rock. Adapted from Native Instruments' legendary AKOUSTIK PIANO software and manufactured with the same attention to detail as the BERLIN, VIENNA and NEW YORK grands, this is an instrument that sounds original in every way.
The Charm of The Original
The UPRIGHT PIANO is a traditional, quality piano with a warm, charismatic and compact sound. Time and time again, original artists and critics alike have hailed it as the "Best Concert Piano". In comparison with the real piano, it easily stands up - the UPRIGHT PIANO reveals a decay and rich sound full of nuances, power and poetry.
Room to Breathe
A fine selection of venues combines the realism of real acoustic spaces with the flexibility and control possibilities of convolution-based signal processing. By merging the impulse response of an actual, existing acoustic environment over the signal itself, the sound acquires an incredibly authentic spatial character. Choose to use the dry signal as it is or blend in the characteristics of one of four different locations. Place the piano in the immediate, heady surroundings of a jazz club, within the grandeur of a concert hall, in the spacious ambience of a cathedral or the in the precise, pristine acoustics of a studio.
The world's most revered pianos are based on the award-winning and extremely powerful Native Instruments sampling engine, guaranteeing a completely realistic and reliable reproduction of the originals. The keys, including the full sustain and release phases, were sampled at ten different velocities. A specially designed recording technique ensured that the different velocities remained uniform throughout the recording process, delivering exceptionally linear results. High-end microphones and audio equipment delivered the best possible quality of recorded material while the Layer Morphing Technology generates a seamless dynamic gradient across the different velocity layers.
