Where other piano libraries leave you with a fixed piano sound that may or may not suit your project, Reason Pianos does just the opposite: these pianos were recorded using multiple microphones, leaving the mixing and shaping of your piano sound to you. You create piano sounds that suit your mix, not the other way around. A large selection of Combinator presets ranging from basic microphone setups to wide multi-mic patches guarantees you absolute sonic control. There's no one way to record a piano. And, there's no one way to mix one.

The featured pianos were chosen for their classic pop and rock friendly sound; The Steinway D is considered tobe the world's finest grand piano, the Yamaha C7 is a classic rock and jazzpiano with a distinctive sound.
