PRESETS (8)

Direct - The close condensers with reduced mechanical sounds of the hammers and pedal

Intimate - A dry and characterful mix of the two close microphones with the mechanical sounds of the hammers and pedal increased

Soft Drama - A combination of all three signals provides a dramatic and suspenseful sound

Subdued - The upper dynamic layer has been removed to remove brightness from the piano, useful for gentle and pensive moods

Reverberant Ribbons - The ribbons, KU100 and a generous helping of reverb for a colourful, cinematic sound

Ambient - The Binaural signal, with the reverb turned up

Dynamic - The variance in dynamic layers is emphasised to allow for greater control over expression and nuance of the piano

CONTROLS (4)

Reverb – A realistic Hall-style impulse response, bespoke to this piano

Tightness –  Cuts further into the note to make it tighter

Hammers – Controls the volume of the piano’s hammers

Pedal – Controls the volume of the sustain pedal noise

SIGNALS (3)

Condenser – a pair of Neumann M149 microphones for a crisp, full bodied sound.

Ribbon – a pair of Coles 4038 ribbon microphones providing a characterful and warm sound.

Binaural – Neumann KU100 dummy head, providing a realistic image of the piano, as if you were sitting at the piano yourself. Works particularly well with reverb.
