    Yes, that’s right: this Group Buy applies to all our libraries, bundles and updates. Included are all our Piano Sample Libraries, like the Bosendorfer 290, The Old Lady and Emperor, all our Church Organ Libraries, Harpsichords etc as well as all our special bundles and upgrades.
    This is your chance to get our products for the lowest possible price ever. Join now and have your libraries delivered in time for Christmas!
    * EARLY BIRDS: If you join before Nov 12 you always get the 50% discount no matter how many entries we get!

    Group Buy Rules.
    We assume most of you know how the Group Buy structure works but here we go:
    - A group buy is a special promotion on popular products where the discount goes up as more people join. As the group of buyers grows the discount goes up. When we reach a certain limit the maximum discount applies for all purchases.
    - To join the Group Buy it is necessary to make a purchase in our on-line store with the 50% maximum discount. This purchase is your entry. You can make multiple purchases and they will count as multiple entries.
    - When 81 entries are reached the 50% discount applies for all buyers and you don’t have to make an additional payment. If the 81 buyers are not reached at the end of the Group Buy you will have to make an additional payment. This payment will be the difference between the lowest price you paid and the actual price as set by the discount percentage reached at the end. By joining a group buy you agree to wait until the end of the group buy before receiving the product(s) and make the final payment if needed.
    - You can find the discount percentage matching each level of buyers in the table below.


    The counter will be updated daily to show the actual number of entries.

    - All entries before November 12 get the 50% discount, regardless the final number of buyers!
    - Naturally you can buy as many products as you want, buy more copies for your musical friends or buy just one product with the steep discount while you are ordering;
    - All the submitted personal data is be protected according to Privacy Regulations Guidelines. We will never pass on any personal information to third parties. Any and all information you provide is kept for the purpose of handling your order only, it will remain. Your privacy is respected;
    - We will add a shipping fee of $ 9 to each order.
    - Both the entry and the shipping fee are non-refundable purchases.
    - When the final discount is reached (or when the Group Buy ends) we will ship the products you purchased.

    About Our Products
    Pianos:
    EMPEROR:
    This library brings you an incredible Bösendorfer 290 SE as the most realistic sample library available today. The piano has a huge dynamic range, with very subtle pianissimo and thunderous fortissimos. 12 recorded velocity layers, with 12 separate sustain pedal down layers and release triggered samples.
    OLD LADY:
    This library brings you an amazing Model 1923 Steinway D grand piano. Sampled with 10 recorded velocity layers with 10 separate sustain pedal down layers and release triggered samples.
    You can find the demos of Old Lady and Emperor on
    this PIANO MAGIC webpage
    There is a downloadable playable demo file for Emperor and Old Lady on-line here.
    The recorded pianos for OLD LADY and EMPEROR were equipped with an advanced computer operated playback mechanism that was designed by mathematician, scientist and inventor Wayne Stahnke. The mechanism actually operates the piano keys and pedals with over 1.000 steps accuracy for inverse hammer velocity. The Stancke computer system enabled us to capture each velocity layer for this library with absolute velocity levels. These levels guarantee a totally even response across the whole keyboard for all velocities. The programming of this piano is designed to take full advantage of the possibilities of GigaStudio 3 and Kontakt 2 software. This results in more programmed velocity layers. The Emperor has 24 recordings for each key. These recordings were further divided in 64 velocity groups, each a slight variation of the underlying velocity layer sample. These libraries use a new programming to create the sustain pedal effect. Traditionally, conventional piano libraries use the sustain pedal as an ON-OFF switch, which has to be pressed before a note is played. These libraries lacked the possibility to re-pedal as in a real concert grand piano. Now this barrier has been broken. The PMI EMPEROR & OLD LADY libraries allow the user to press the sustain pedal at any time while playing notes or chords to start the sympathetic resonance of the non-struck strings. There is a choice of convolution using the impulse response of the body resonance of the actual piano and a programming technique that adds the recorded resonance as an extra layer. The Giga3 and Kontakt 2 versions also use IR’s for recreation of the original acoustics of the piano hall where the pianos were recorded, recreation of the true body resonance upon sustain pedal use, true re-pedalling, sustain pedal triggered pedal noise etc.

    Bosendorfer 290
    This Bösendorfer library provides the greatest possible control during the softest pianissimo, through crescendos to the reserves of power needed for the loudest fortissimo. By utilizing new technology to optimise the mechanical performance of the action, Post Musical Instruments has created a product which leaves the pianist in total control of dynamic response, timbre and touch. PMI has finally captured a grand piano with "breath". They recorded both dry samples and ambient samples. The dry samples are recorded fairly close to the piano strings. The wet samples are recorded at a distance so that the hall acoustic is captured. You can experience a concert hall type of sound and control the amount of ambience until you play it absolutely dry.
    Several Gigabytes of samples, up to 16 recorded layers of velocity, separate sustain pedal up and down samples, multiple release samples... separate "dry" and "wet" samples that can be mixed for ultimate ambience control. 24 bit samples, real-time sustain pedal, increased dynamics, smoother velocity response and GigaPulse or Kontakt 2 convolution body resonance make this library your ultimate sampled piano!
    NOTE: When operating the samples on a disk streaming sampler (like Giga, Kontakt with DFD, EXS24 with Virtual memory and HALION) you need 512 MB of free RAM.You will need at least 1 GB of free RAM when playing the PMI PIANO libraries from a RAM-based soft-sampler platform.

    Steinway D
    We recorded the best grand piano we could find. This particular instrument is in premium condition, a Steinway model D3 with serial number 393210 which was built in 1965. It was fully refurbished by Steinway
    Hamburg in 1999. This piano served the Rotterdam 'DOELEN' concert hall for several decades, where hundreds of famous musicians, from Claudio Arrau to the Rolling Stones, performed for live audiences and broadcast concerts.
    We captured up to 6 articulations (PPP, PP, P, MF, F, FF and FFF) for sustain pedal up, sustain pedal down and 4 articulations for the release triggered samples. We recorded the samples using the finest digital equipment available. Prism Sound, a 24-bit ProTools TDM Mix+ system and Waves processing was used. We have mapped up to 16 levels of velocity, true multiple velocity release layers, ultimate staccato, and sustained pedal-down samples with a carefully chosen amount of resonance.
    The library has 5 GB of samples. The end result was tested by several concert pianists, who helped us develop a sampled instrument which could meet their highest expectations. There is no doubt in our minds that this is the best sampled piano ever.

    YAMAHA C7
    This Yamaha C7 library provides the greatest possible control during the softest pianissimo, through crescendos to the reserves of power needed for the loudest fortissimo. By utilizing new technology to optimise the mechanical performance of the action, Post Musical Instruments has created a product which leaves the pianist in total control of dynamic response, timbre and touch. PMI has captured the final pop grand piano. We recorded both dry samples and ambient samples. 8 GB of 24 bits samples, up to 16 recorded layers of velocity, separate sustain pedal up and down samples, multiple release samples... and best: dry and wet samples that can be mixed for absolute ambience control.

    ESTONIA
    Estonia Concert Grand piano is a multi-velocity level chromatically sampled piano of the highest realism! The Grand Piano of ESTONIA has an unique SOUND which comes from the superior spruce timber that grows only in extremely cold areas. The large 9' instrument was sampled with multiple velocity layers and sustain pedal sampled individually. There is even a multiple velocity layer release layer for ultimate realism! The instrument was sampled with 4 layers of velocity (both pedal up and pedal down) also 4 layers of velocity were used to capture the release key action of this piano. The 15 instrument variations give the options of playing the piano with sustained notes only (!), no sustained notes, no release layer, special 'dark' settings etc….All white keys are sampled (55 for each layer).
    You can find the demos on
    this PIANO MAGIC webpage


    For instant comparison between these 5 major pianos please listen to the demos on this comparison page:

    Others:
    HISTORIC KEYBOARDS
    This dynamic library features Flemish Harpsichord, Frensh Harpsichord, Virginal and Fortepiano. The harpsichords have been sampled so that you can get both manuals separately and combined. You can even use a key switch to change the registration (from upper manual only, to lower manual to both at the same time) while playing. All instruments are captured with their release sounds, giving them an unbelievable realistic quality.
    You can find the demos on
    this CONSOLIDATED demo webpage


    PIANO SUITE
    A unique collection of Steinway D Concert grand and other orchestral percussion instruments. The main instrument is a Steinway D Concert Grand (the largest size Steinway makes) sampled with multiple velocity layers and sustain pedal sampled individually.
    You can find the demos on
    this CONSOLIDATED demo webpage

    Organs:
    PMI is one of the leading organ sample manufactorers. These collections below are designed to let you play a real church organ with as many stops as you want on your sampler.
    Theatre organs
    Theatre Organ: The large City Theatre Organ sampled, each rank, each note with natural reverb.
    All ranks were chromatically sampled, capturing the true nature and character of each pipe. Samples are 10 to 15 seconds long with perfect loops to enable playing of unlimited length of notes. The true release sound of the organ pipes was also recorded and is reproduced upon key-release.
    All programs have 50 multisamples recorded in stereo, with the true release reverberation tail recorded in the theatre. The programs are around 100 MB each, making the total size of these individual stops 1.4 Gigabytes. Disposition: MAIN Prestant, Bourdon, Gamba, Celeste, Viole d'Orchetre, Major Flute, Clarion, Fagot/Clarinet, Soussaphone, Harmonia Aetheria Violon Solo Viola, Diaphason, Bourdon, Tibia, Celesta, Jazztrompet, Krumhorn, Vox Humana.
