The Absolute Piano really exploit the Virtual Piano concept by adding specific and innovative possi-bilities.With its filters you can sculpt the piano timber and produce a large number a piano sounds from the same base. Everything is specifically designed to manipulate and play piano sounds.

Absolute Piano : Steinway Concert Grand.

This piano has been sampled from a huge Steinway Model D piano. It sounds large
and deep. It can be used for all kind of music from pop/rock to classical music.

What's new in this version?

We've removed most of the 'simulation' options. They were taking too much process. Now the simulation
has been limited to the pedal sound for classic piano . It speeds up the sample playback by 2!

Polyphony : the Absolute piano can play 128 notes simultaneously!

New sound-bank, all the new pianos were recorded in the summer 2006 when the piano shop was closed.
I've used ADK TC microphones with ART Pro Channel valve pream to get the warmest sound. The piano
sound is deeply compressed (lossless) to be small (280mb only). The compression is not audible.

The reverb has been enhanced, it is now as good as any professional one. Also there
are 2 vu-meters for left and right precise view instead of one for the mix of the two
channels in V2. The interface is clearer, the license is displayed on the main surface.

The key features of the Absolute piano :

Optimization : even if the Absolute Piano is small - if you compare to its competitors - it is based
on a very optimized high quality sound bank and it sounds fantastic. Yes, small can be better ...
sometime.This piano was sampled on 4 velocity layers with up to 12 second length.

Creativity : the Absolute Piano features a sound sculpture filter specifically designed
for that pîano. It is in fact a 3 bands powerful shelving filter tuned to 'sculpt' the
piano timber. You can create warm or old piano, ragtime or classical sound easily.

Effects : in every plug-in you have a set of effects, but, the Absolute Piano has specific ones,
designed only for this piano. The reverberator is warm, very powerful and will not add any
ringing resonance. The chorus will greatly emulate the piano bar style, and the peak boost
will add an incredible punch in the piano attack, while compressing and limiting at the same
time! Great for rock and pop styles...the multi-tap echo can be sync to the tempo.

Background : the Absolute piano is a real simulator, and you can add pre-recorded hi-quality background
sounds, from restaurant, or concert ambience to weird forest, thunder, sea, mountain wind, snow! Fun to
play it is a must for adding some emotions while you play, try it, you'll re-discover your favorite pieces!

Synthesis : with its very high quality filter, low pass, high pass, band pass, and notch, with
a constant gain and saturation, resonance and self oscillation, and also the volume enve-
lope, you have access to the real synthesizers endless possibilities. It is even possible to
emulate the sound of ... a violin! Most competitors are just using a basic one pole filter
to free some CPU power. With the Absolute Piano, you can really create new sounds!
