Grand Piano XXL is a sampled Yamaha C5 6'7" Grand Piano.

The original samples (Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license) were recorded by Alexander Holm with two AKG c414 condenser microphones placed in an AB position at around 12 centimeters above the strings.

All the samples were captured in 48kHz 24-bit audio quality with 16 velocity layers which are all present in this virtual plugin, hence the 1.19 GB size on disk.

The GUI is simple and intuitive with attack & release controls, reverb module, and gain. In the middle, there's a "Tremolo" section with LFO rate & depth for pitch, expression, and pan, plus filter cutoff with selectable lowpass/highpass. The "Key" knob acts as a gain for piano keys release.

Questo è molto buono. È simile al yamaha piano di Keyzone Classic. Manca un pitch correction. Il volume è un pò basso.

A nice grand piano that you can use for many styles of music, a little bit noisy in the upper register but nothing dramatic. The tremolo section is a cool idea.
