Introducing the 8DIO Legacy Piano Series – a collection of deep-sampled world-class pianos. The 8Dio Legacy Piano Series marks the next evolution in hyper-realistic piano sampling – both in regards to playability, character and expressiveness of the pianos.
The 1990 Prepared Grand Piano is one of the most comprehensive collections of deep-sampled Prepared Piano on the market. The library contains over 44.000 samples and 38 highly unique and playable articulations, including everything from playing directly on piano strings with Guitar Picks, E-Bow, Mallets, Forks, Ping Pong Balls, Paper, Bottle Caps, Coke Cans, Blankets, Wires etc. 8Dio also included a sweeping selection of finger techniques ranging from muted spiccatos to picked sustains and everything in-between. In addition, several articulations were recorded with both pedal up and pedal down and with round robin variations.
The end-result is an extraordinary piano experience unlike anything ever done. The Prepared Piano includes five unique microphones/positions, including Neumann 87′s, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon’s, AKG 414′s and Neumann KM 184′s. Everything was lovingly recorded & processed at 96k at a famous hi-tech British Studio through one of the greatest custom NEVE desks in existence before expertly down sampling to a smooth 48k for ease of streaming. Every sample was recorded through both TC6000 and Bricasti studio reverbs, so you literally have the best recordings that can possibly be done.
In addition the library gives you full control over the dynamic response as well as mechanics and tone, so you can dial in the perfect sound & dynamic match for your workflow – all simply done with a click of the mouse. You also get full control over resonance, room tone and signal chain noise, non tonal key control, unique release triggers for hammer action, string damping, and release triggers for the room and ambient microphones. In essence you have everything right at your finger tips and most importantly – it just works effortlessly.
