Upright Grand Piano | Impro by Maxime Sanchez by UVI - Sounds & Software published on 2012-05-10T10:32:03Z Now included in UVI Grand Piano Collection ! http://www.uvi.net/grand-piano-collection.html After the successful launch of the UVI SoundPack Acoustic Grand Piano and UVI SoundPack Baby Grand Piano, the number one request of our customers was to have a very good Upright Piano, that would be used a lot these days in modern Rock, Pop and even Jazz music. As for all our sounds, we did use extremely good microphones, excellent sounding mic pre and insanely good analog to digital converters. Every single note was carefully multi-sampled in multiple velocity levels. We also used the same special technique, introduced in Baby Grand Piano, to capture the true sound when playing with the sustain pedal, to add another level of realism. Thanks to UVI Engine's advanced keygroup layers and rule switching, the sustain pedal and release samples perform and "feel" like a real piano. At the end of the process, during the editing of samples, we consulted a great instrumentalist to test the result of this work, then we were able to even improve the instrument's response to make it really enjoyable. This wonderful UVI Soundcard fully completes our Grand Piano series, putting forward an excellent sounding piano with true musicality.
