Absolute Piano : Yamaha C6. This was my own piano when I was leaving in Paris. I spent a significant time to tune it and record it during the year 2007 just before I move to Florida USA. It has been recorded every 2 notes, with 4 level of velocity. V4 introduce smooth crossface between each layer for a better transition between each velocity layer.
I like the common sound this piano deliver. Most upscale expensive pianos have a great sound, but very special and different from the piano people uses commonly. For me this sound is the real sound of a piano, the piano I learned
The key features of the Yamaha C6 piano. Based on a very optimized high quality sound bank and it sounds fantastic. Creativity : the Absolute Piano features a sound sculpture filter specifically designed for it, that is in fact a 3 bands powerful shelving filter tuned to 'sculpt' the piano timber. You can create warm or old piano, ragtime or classical sound easily. Effects : in every plug-in you have a set of effects, but, the Absolute Piano has specific ones, designed only for this piano. The reverberator is warm, very powerful and will not add any ringing resonance. The chorus will greatly emulate the piano bar style, and the peak boost will add an incredible punch in the piano attack, while compressing and limiting at the same time! Great for rock and pop styles...the multi-tap echo can be sync to the tempo. Background : the Absolute Steinway B piano is a real simulator, and you can add pre-recorded hi-quality background sounds, from restaurant, or concert ambiance to weird forest, thunder, sea, mountain wind, snow! Fun to play it is a must for adding some emotions while you play, try it, you'll re-discover your favorite pieces! Synthesis : with its very high quality filter, low pass, high pass, band pass, and notch, with a constant gain and saturation, resonance and self oscillation, and also the volume envelope, you have access to the real synthesizers endless possibilities.
