The 1928 Scoring Piano contains over 11,000 samples and two different microphone perspectives, including a Close Microphone and Player Microphone, which was a mix of 8 Neumann Microphones run through a NEVE console. The close position consists of microphones close to the soundboard of the piano, highly intimate and with a clear sensation of the resonance.
The 1928 Scoring Piano contains a variety of custom piano morph options, so you can blend the piano with a selection of instruments and create completely new instruments with a single click. The instruments you can blend include Guitars, Caisa, Marimba, Rhodes, Crotales, Bowed Percussion, Glass Marima, and Glockenspiel.
The 1928 Scoring Piano is the first ever to have round-robin based sustains and round-robin based staccatos in combination. The round-robin sustains allow you to get a hyper-natural variation in the sound, even when playing slow and with the pedal down. The staccatos were recorded separately, since the attack of a short note on a piano differs from a sustain.
But it all culminated on the third cellar floor of the San Francisco Steinway store. An old, brown vintage Steinway from 1928 that was protected under a thick dust cover. It was dusty and forgotten, but the piano caretaker had to keep tuning because he loved it so much.
He answered: " ... Because it is brown. 95% of people don't purchase pianos to play them. They purchase them as furniture ..."We proceeded to ask: "Why does it sound so rich and soulful?"He answered: " ... Because it still has the original strings from 1928. The strings have aged like a really fine wine. Consider yourself lucky! ..."And we hope it makes you feel lucky too.
