We recorded The Grandeur at the beautiful fattoria musica studios using high end DPA, Neumann and Sennheiser microphones together with Neve and API mic preamps for a dynamic but also assertive sound character.
The GRANDEUR’s extensive tweaking options make it perfect for all contemporary productions: Control the levels of the pedals, damper, string and hammer sounds. Adjust the timbre with the Color knob. Turn the Dynamic knob to change the dynamic range. The Lid control adjusts brightness. And built-in effects allow you to you fine-tune the sound without ever leaving the interface.
THE GRANDEUR brings a true piano feel to life. Over 2,500 individual samples and 18 velocity zones allow each note to come through with stunning realism. With mechanical and string 'noises' being a main part of a piano's realism, THE GRANDEUR also features the 'dying string' release sounds, the hammer noises and the pedal, damper and vibrant string noises, all individually adjustable.
Changes the tone colour or timbre from soft (left) to hard (right) by readjusting the sample mapping. It's a dynamic way of mapping, while balancing the volume differences between softer and harder samples. As a result of turning the 'Colour' knob to the right, you will hear the piano sound 'harder', crispier, and with 'more attack'. Turning it to the left it'll sound 'warmer', 'softer' and with less 'attack'.
We sampled the resonating strings with the sustain pedal up and down seperately enabling an individual adjustment of THE GRANDEUR's resonance using the 'Resonance', the 'Depth' and the 'Overtones' controls.
