Description: Steinberg The Grand 3 – a new generation of virtual grand pianos
Steinberg has released a new high-quality virtual piano Steinberg The Grand 3. The Grand 3 contains all the artistic details that take the virtual instrument to an unprecedented level of realism. It features three grand pianos (Yamaha C7, Bösendorfer 290 Imperial, Steinway D), a Yamaha CP80 Electric Grand digital grand and a Nordiska Pianofabriken upright. All instruments were recorded in studio conditions using a large number of microphones.
The unmatched sound of the Yamaha C7 grand piano holds the record for beauty and musicality. This incredible sound is the result of a lot of hard work by programmers and musicians. The Yamaha C7 virtual grand piano is able to convey all the features of musical expression during performance.
Bösendorfer 290 Imperial is a virtual grand piano that allows the gourmet of high-quality sound to enjoy all the colors and richness of the timbre of a real grand piano. It is perfectly controlled with the appropriate controllers and is able to shine in every piece of music, delivering luxurious sound quality.
Steinway D – bewitches with depth of tone and ultra receptive touch. The Steinway D emits the warmth of a resonant rich sound. You can simply enjoy playing this virtual grand piano.
The Yamaha CP80 Electric Grand is one of the finest digital grand pianos. A specialist from Yamaha was invited to create this instrument. Several effects were applied to this virtual instrument – flanger, tremolo, chorus and others.
Nordiska Pianofabriken has a certain individual sound. The typical piano tones are breathtaking in the virtual piano model. It perfectly sounds rock, blues, jazz and other styles. This model clearly shows the detail when sampling sound.
For recording grand pianos, Neuman microphones were made to special order. The characteristics of these microphones have been adapted to the piano, taking into account timbre and frequency characteristics. The microphones accurately reproduced the luxurious sound of each instrument. Everything was recorded: the acoustics of the room, the resonance of the strings, the sound of hammers and even the rustle of a pedal.
