    Hi

    Just bought rain piano. I thinkI have three of your pianos now (studio 88, white jr and rain). .. (are studio88 and white grand the same physical instrument by any chance?)

    I was wondering if you'd be kind enough to set up a patch for one of them to support two players at one keyboard, for either duets or student / teacher use. Its quite a common feature digital pianos sold by Roland and the like, and I would find it quite useful as I teach my daughter to play.

    I don't think any of the piano library vendors do anything like this.

    And yes I should probably learn to do it myself, but life is so busy now I barely get an hour quality time (music) a day these days.

    Thanks and very grateful.

    Hi Drew.

    Yes, the SG88 and White Grand are recorded using the same instrument but in differrent ways.

    I'm not sure about what you mean with the setup, should it be a split in the middle of the keyboard havein the same octaves on both sides?

    Since we have a lot of pianos, here's a chance for you to compare them.
    As a demo, we used a midifile played by Sue Keller.
    There's also a short description for each piano.
    Nothing has been done with the demos, just the samples, straight out of the box!
    There's other instruments then pianos available for the special autumn discount, read more about those at www.sampletekk.com
    Here we go:

    TBO - The Big One
    Together with 7CG, the largest, most dynamic sampled piano around

    TBO Demo
    Piano used - Yamaha C7 Grand
    Size - 11.8 Gb
    93 Samples/Recorded note, 31 Pedal Up, 31 Pedal Down and 31 Release Samples
    Impulses for Convoluting included
    K2 Script for Sympathetic Resonance available from 3:rd party developers.
    Normal price $199, Special Price Now: $99.50, save $99.50


    With its 93 unique samples/recorded note, this piano delivers a dynamic response totally unequalled among today’s sampled pianos. The piano was taken with microphones close to the strings to get a clear, detailed sound, and with the use of vintage Neumann microphones, we where able to maintain the warmth and acoustic character of this great instrument

    7CG - Seven Seas Grand
    Together with TBO, the largest, most dynamic sampled piano around

    7CG Demo
    Piano used - Yamaha C7 Grand
    Size - 11.8 Gb
    93 Samples/Recorded note, 31 Pedal Up, 31 Pedal Down and 31 Release Samples
    Impulses for Convoluting included
    K2 Script for Sympathetic Resonance available from 3:rd party developers.
    Normal price $199, Special Price Now: $99.50, save $99.50


    The same as TBO: 93 unique samples/recorded note! The piano was taken with vintage Neumann microphones close to the strings, but not as close as TBO to get a distinct tone with a bit more ambience then TBO

    Black Grand - The Concert Grand
    Steinway D Hamburg Concert Grand

    Black Grand Close Demo
    Black Grand Medium Ambience Demo
    Black Grand Ambience Demo
    Piano used - Steinway D Hamburg

    Used and proven by many, many musicians, composers and producers, both on record and on film, White Grand has proven its case: The Ultimate Studio Grand! This is not a piano that is meant to sound as a true acoustic image of a "real grand piano". It has been processed to work in a mix, straight off! Use this one for pop/rock/jazz/gospel or anything in between, and I can promise you that your in for a real treat!
    Here's some user comments:

    "The White Grand is the best piano sample I have heard. It sits beautifully in a mix, as well as alone. It actually sounds alive!" - Paul Linford; film composer, mixer, programmer for Trevor Rabin

    "I had no idea a sampled piano could be this good. It was as if someone told me they had a guitar, and what they showed me was a '54 Strat." - Trevor Rabin; Film Composer, Guitarist

    "In the professional world we don't have time to waste in the studio, so when I need an acoustic piano, I always start with White Grand - it just works. It's presence and brightness is hard to achieve with other piano samples" - Jermey Whaley; producer, composer, musician

    "Probably the very best pop/studio piano that has ever been released. In terms of its evenness and playability, and its consistency of presence from pp to fff, I think it is the best piano sample that has ever been released, period." - Bruce Richardson; composer, sound designer, music-technology guru.

    White Sister - White Grand's mellow sister
    The softer side of White Grand

    White Sister Demo
    Piano used - Malmsjo Grand
    Size - 5.3 Gb
    32 Samples/Recorded note, 16 Pedal Up, 16 Pedal Down and 4 Release Samples
    K2 Script for Sympathetic Resonance available from 3:rd party developers.
    Normal price $139, Special Price Now: $69.50, save $69.50


    When recording the White Grand, we also captured a second stereo pair, this time making things a bit smoother. Mind you, still crisp and clear, but a mellower side of White Grand

    White Grand II - WG Bundle
    The only studio grand you will need

    White Grand and White Sister comes in a bundle called "White Grand II"
    Normal price: $189, Special Price Now: $94.50

    Vertikal - The Piano Alternative
    When a Grand gets too grand....

    Vertikal Jazz Demo
    Vertikal Pop Demo
    Piano used - Yamaha MJ5 Upright Piano
    Size - 14.9 Gb (Both perspectives
    48 Samples/Recorded note, 16 Pedal Up, 16 Pedal Down and 16 Release Samples
    Impulses for Convoluting included
    K2 Script for Sympathetic Resonance available from 3:rd party developers.
    Normal price $150, Group Buy Price $75, save $75

    You can also buy the Vertikal Pop as DirectDownload
    Normal price $79, Special Price Now: $39.50, save $39.50

    Sometimes a song needs something extra. Maybe the grand piano you use sounds too big, too grand. That's when you try the Vertikal!. It's an upright piano recorded in two different perspectives called Jazz and Pop. The Pop perspective is closer, brighter and the Jazz perspective a bit softer.

    Rain Piano
    There is nothing like it!

    Rain Piano Demo
    Piano used - Nordiska Piano Upright
    Size - 710 Mb
    16 Samples/Recorded note, 8 Pedal Up, 8 Pedal Down
    Normal price $49, Group Buy Price $24.50, save $24.50


    This piano was recorded a couple of years ago and it's not as technically advanced as our newer pianos, but it's still one of my favourites!
    It was recorded after I've listened a lot to "Mule Variations" with Tom Waits, and I just fallen in love with the piano sound on that recording.
    It sounded like a piano that's been out in the rain for a couple of days! Jussi, the piano technician we usually uses on our recordings and one of Sweden s best tuners got instructions to make the piano sound this way, but still perfectly in tune. I can tell you that this was something that he never had done before! By carefully detuning one of the three strings that makes a piano note, keeping the other two in tune, he managed to get an instrument that delivers a sound so unique and full of charm but still perfectly in tune.
    At $25 I would recommend you to add this to your Group Buy, or if you already entered, get this too! You won’t regret it!!!!


    Also check out the smaller, fully upgradeable, versions of some of our pianos: WG Jr, Steiny D, Steiny D Close and TSO.

    well as you're virtually giving away some of your pianos, it seemed worth a 2hr download to get the Steiny D. I mean I could have even afforded some of the others but they just take up more "real estate" on the hard drive and memory. OK --I'm not a piano specialist but I can assure you that none of my existing pianos (bundled with orchestral libraries) are ever likely to see the light of day again after spending 2 minutes on this. Now to hastily rearrange everything I've ever written for the instrument....

    PS are you really celebrating the arrival of autumn?? I know it's been a great September in Gothenburg at least but winters are LONG in Sweden
