If you're looking for the ultimate acoustic piano instrument that feels at home in any musical genre or style, this Add-on is for you! The Presonus Studio Grand acoustic piano is a sampler instrument for Presence XT and compatible with all versions of Studio One 3 (Prime, Artist and Professional).
Recorded and sampled in a word-class recording studio using some of the finest analog equipment available, this contemporary 7ft concert grand piano offers the perfect balance between individual character and flexibility. This is the same instrument included in the Presence XT Core library for Studio One 3 Professional and the Presence XT - Keyboards Add-on available in the PreSonus Shop - but 10 times the depth and size!
Two different microphone sets have been chosen to capture every detail of this instrument: a matched pair of German condenser mics in the player position, as well as a pair of the finest ribbon microphones available, placed on the side and above the lid of the instrument. Each mic set has been included as a separate instrument. Studio One 3 Professional users have the added value of a Multi Instrument preset that combines both mic sets and allows them to be mixed individually in the Studio One mix console.
The piano has been meticulously sampled to capture every detail of this wonderful instrument. Each note of the octave has been sampled in 10 velocity layers with 8 alternate (round-robin) samples for maximum realism. Add to this authentic pedal action noise, sustain pedal resonances, and note-off samples, all of which are controlled by powerful custom scripts and custom script controls. A variety of presets covers every musical style and allows for deep customization.
Demo Notes: all audio demos feature presets exclusively from PreSonus Studio Grand, using only piano samples.
