Production Grand 2 (Full version)
The Settings Page allows for unique control over how the piano sounds and responds. Sympathetic Resonance adds overtones from held and struck notes the same way a piano does resulting in a piano playing experience close to the original.
Continuous Pedal allows you to half-pedal and use various pedal depths to create dynamic performances just like on an acoustic grand piano.
Should a softly played note be lower or louder in volume? Touch Response gives you control over the volume response of the sample library tailoring the touch and feel to your own performance requirements!
Add Recording Noise for an authentic studio recorded sound and Pre-Attack, the hammer mechanical noise which most libraries leave out, and you have finite control to perfectly craft your piano sound.
Microphone selection and placement makes all the difference to a quality recording. Audio engineers the world over have relied on the sound quality and tone of standards such as U87 and 4006 microphones. B&K (now DPA) 4006 microphones are used on classical recordings for their true-to-life linear sound. The signal path for the sampling of Production 2 Grand like Concert Grand, our Steinway D piano sample library, represents the best of the best from microphones to preamps and to converters. It’s a bold claim, but rings true in the sound of Production Grand 2. 96k gives clean crisp audio that contributes to the high definition sound quality when several microphones and several notes of polyphony are used at the same time.
8 Microphone perspectives are impressive on their own, but how Production Grand 2 handles these sonic choices puts you in the engineer’s seat when you are not on the piano bench. The mixer is a full complement SSL emulation with SSL simulated EQ and compression on every channel. Get the same control as if the piano were recorded on different tracks in a recording studio. Album quality production is the goal with Production Grand 2’s mixer section.
Production Grand 2 has some amazing presets to get you started playing and enjoying the library right off the get go! These presets were crafted to sound great in a variety of styles and make use of the 8 microphone choices.
The reverb section contains 29 impulse responses all set with the right amount of pre-delay on each. There are plates, halls and studio reverbs to enhance the piano performance experience. Every mic perspective also has its own reverb send so the sound can be shaped based on what mics you are using. Many of the instrument presets make use of the built-in reverb.
