Welcome to The New Legacy Piano Series – a collection of deep-sampled world-class pianos. Our Legacy Piano Series marks the next evolution in hyper-realistic piano sampling – both in regards to playability, character and expressiveness of the pianos.
The 1969 Steinway (Model D) Concert Grand Piano marks one of the most exquisite piano lines in existence. The tone is rich, full, yet bright and airy. It has a majestic character, which can blend into anything from classical piano pieces to rock/pop. The specific model we sampled is from 1969, which marks one of the greatest eras of piano engineering. The natural age of the piano has allowed the soundboard to settle and open up and blossom like great bottle of wine.
We sampled the 1969 Steinway Concert Grand Piano from 6 different stereo microphone perspectives (Overhead, Keyboard/Player, Dampers, Spot, Ambient & Room), so you can dial in the sound and perspective you want.
Whether its the full range of the overheads or the slightly softened mics on the dampers, or room perspective with the keyboard/player mixed in for a wide and open sound.
The 1969 Steinway Concert Grand Piano has a variety of advanced controls and in addition the piano also comes with a variety of custom instruments (eg. Eternal Sustains, Glockenspiels, Assortment of Guitars, Modi ed Pianos etc).
