Slightly mellow grand piano

31.12.2016
Bought this after reading that this was previously one of the go-to pianos by the Hillsong keyboardist Peter James. My primary purpose of using this piano is in a church worship setting.

One of the main drawbacks of using this software is that it requires the ilok USB dongle at all times. So have to factor in an additional 50-70 dollars to purchase it, if you don't own it already.

The piano itself comes on 4 DVD installation discs (whereas the concert American D comes on 7 DVD discs).

The piano is slightly mellower in comparison with the Ivory II concert American D. It is quite a nice piano, if you need a quality mellow piano, for quiet sweet maybe solo piano passages. However if you need something brighter, maybe more cut-through, you can consider Ivory II concert American D or maybe Kontakt Giant.

This piano itself comes with about a dozen or more presets, which you can tweak further, and there are a few simple pad sounds that you can layer with it, right within the software.

I look forward to field testing it in a live setting, as I've only tested it at home for now.

Great piano plug-in

Fulton, 06.03.2013
Own sound character, clean control of the keys, top-feel. In the low mountain ranges, some sounds do not sound very long (therefore a small point deduction), but this may be due to the individually drawn-in wing and its sound properties. Sounds also very natural, realistic and not too "perfect", although technically clean decreased. I personally feel Synthogy's German and American D as more supple and coherent. It is absolutely worthwhile to try the Italian Grand. In the case of sacred recordings, he sometimes makes a better impression for me.

Conclusion: Interesting and charming wing sound with very small habit, which can be optimized with a bit of sound basics.
