Native Instruments Berlin Concert Grand v1.4.0 KONTAKT
Native Instruments Berlin Concert Grand v1.4.0 KONTAKT
The BERLIN CONCERT GRAND is an exceptional instrument. Derived from Native Instruments' legendary AKOUSTIK PIANO software, its structural transparency, balanced register, and poetic and original style are the definitive characteristics of this concert piano. Sophisticated recording techniques using high-end equipment provided the raw material for the award-winning KONTAKT sample engine, ensuring the BERLIN CONCERT GRAND is indistinguishable from the original.

THE CHARM OF ORIGINAL
International pianists and designers created the foundations for the BERLIN CONCERT GRAND. Its unique freshness, strength and musicality established new standards worldwide. Utilizing the standard duplex scale, the BERLIN CONCERT GRAND provides enormously expressive power right to the top of the highest treble- truly a charming, magical instrument, vibrant and full of life.

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.

ACCOMPLISHED COLLECTION
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.

Vienna Grand Piano from the Galaxy II Piano Collection

Galaxy IIs Vienna Grand is comprised of sampling a BOESENDORFER IMPERIAL 290 grand piano. Established by Ignaz Bösendorfer in 1828, Bösendorfer are the oldest piano manufacturers still in production and have a history of constructing some of the worlds finest instruments.

Galxy II BoesendorferGalaxy IIs Vienna Grand is comprised of sampling a BOESENDORFER IMPERIAL 290 grand piano. Established by Ignaz Bösendorfer in 1828, Bösendorfer are the oldest piano manufacturers still in production and have a history of constructing some of the worlds finest instruments. The Model 290 Imperial, a 96” grand piano, is famous for its powerful soundboard and its extended keyboard; going as far as a bottom C0, making a full eight octave range or 97 keys. Sometimes, these extra keys are hidden under a small hinged lid, on others, the colours of the extra white keys are reversed (black instead of white). The extra keys are added primarily for increased resonance from the associated strings; that is, they vibrate sympathetically with other strings whenever the damper pedal is depressed thus creating a fuller tone. With the VIENNA GRAND they are playable.

The Vienna Grand was recorded at Hansahaus Studios/Germany which is famous for its outstanding Jazz Recordings and has received two Grammy Awards. We placed great emphasis on capturing the Bösendorfers huge dynamic range and energy, especially its powerful low end; using additional microphones in the lower register.
