A detailed sample of the Bechstein D-280 grand piano

With the Bechstein D-280, East West presents a high-quality recorded grand piano. Vintage Neumann microphones, a Meitner AD converter and a vintage 8078 Neve console were used to record to this library. The library offers 8 articulations, the PLAY Engine's convolution reverb and three microphone positions.

Detailed description in English:

The Bechstein 280 is a modern 9-foot, German concert grand piano, built in 2006. This is a very precise, technical piano that creates a fantastic classical sound, particularly for more demanding works. It can also produce a really unique, big, pop / rock piano sound. The Platinum Edition allows users to purchase a single license for one Piano from the East West QL Pianos.

Key features:

  • 24-bit samples

  • 3 positions are included per piano for maximum flexibility

  • 10-18 velocities per note of sustain and sustain with pedal

  • 8-12 velocities per note of repetitions and repetitions with pedal

  • 5-8 velocities of soft pedal and soft pedal with sustain pedal

  • 16 velocity staccato on every piano

  • Recorded in a proper piano environment with vintage Neumann microphones, Meitner AD converters and a vintage 8078 Neve console

  • PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections.

The QL Pianos were produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, the same production team that produced the multi-award winning EastWest QL Symphonic Orchestra and EastWest QL Symphonic Choirs. With the original library, all 4 pianos were included.
