    Hello,

    We are Prominy, new developer of sound libraries.
    Recently we released a sound library of YAMAHA ELECTRIC GRAND CP-80.
    The name of the product is "PCP-80".
    PCP-80 is formatted for HALion, GigaStudio, Kontakt, and EXS24.
    The samples are recorded at 24bit, 96kHz sampling rate
    Total size of the library is approximately 15GB.

    And our next product, "LPC", huge sound library of Les Paul Custom will be available in November.
    Total size of the library will be approximately 70GB!

    For more information, please visit our website;

    Thank you.

    Aki

    I second Lee's request. Clean samples sound great when run through Amplitube, etc.

    Hi Aki,

    Are these samples at 96 kHz or have they been sample-rate-converted to 48 or 44.1? I am curious as to how much they take over a computer. I didn't see any minimum requirements listed at your website. I would think that someone with an old P3 or a lower-end P4 would have a tough time playing this instrument.

    TIA,
    FV

    Best CP-80 I've ever heard.

    Never knew Genesis was a boy band. Now that I think about it, maybe they are !
    The Yamaha CP-80 is a vintage keyboard not often heard in today's MTV music.

    Hi Lee and aplanchard,

    >Did you record samples straight from the jack?

    I am afraid to say that we did not record straight from the jack.
    As you said, the sound of straight from the guitar's jack has great flexibility and it is very useful.
    But I tested our clean sound with Amplitube, Pod, and v-amp, I think that the result is good.

    Though the LPC's clean sound is already amped sound,
    I will do my best to create nice demo music so that you like the sound.


    Hi FV,

    >Are these samples at 96 kHz or have they been sample-rate-converted to 48 or 44.1?

    Yes, the samples have been converted to 44kHz.
    (original samples are at 96kHz/24bit.)
    As LPC is huge library, it is better to use powerful cpu, large memory, or faster hard drive.
    However optimized instruments is going to be included in the product.


    Hi Alexcremers,

    >Best CP-80 I've ever heard.

    Thank you for your kind words!

True, you can always add more processing on top of an already amped sound, but it would be nice to get the signal as cleanly and as purely as possible direct from the source (using only a high quality pre-amp to get the level up for recording).

    I totally disagree. The amp lends a nice warm character to the sound that plugins, to date, cannot recreate. I think it's better to start with a warm, slightly colored sound and then add plugins.
