Baby Grand Piano is a soundware music library made to take full advantage of UVI's free Workstation software. The 1930 Erard Baby Grand is one of the smallest grand pianos ever built but you'd never know by the sound. In contrast to the Acoustic Grand Piano library which focused on the detail and grandeur of the concert, UVI wanted to develop this instrument to convey a certain mystique. They didn't want to compromise on quality, rather they wanted very much for the instrument itself to exude a sense of history through its natural sound, and if possible, by extension the space that it was recorded in. So the main goal was deceptively simple; find a really old, really great sounding piano, in a really great sounding space and record it there.
After securing permission to record the Erard, the UVI team arrived with a full spread of world-class microphones, pres and ADCs and got to work. Every note was multi-sampled with up to eight velocity layers, including sustains. UVI employed the same advanced key-groupings and rule switching from the UVI Engine that was used on the Acoustic Grand Piano and again consulted with a concert pianist to help tune the response and playability of this new instrument.
The result is a truly soulful and emotional sounding piano that resonates with history.
