Description

After two years of recording, editing, and programming, EastWest/Quantum Leap proudly present a beautifully detailed recording of the Bechstein D-280 grand piano. It is recording using three separate mic positions for the ultimate in sound options. The PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs, so the pianos blend perfectly with those collections.

Articulations on each piano include:
A. Sustain
B. Sustain with pedal
C. Repetitions
D. Repetitions with pedal
E. Soft pedal
F. Soft pedal with sustain pedal
G. Staccato
H. Release trails
