Art Vista Productions, known for the Malmsjö Acoustic Grand and Cool Vibes instrument sample libraries, is introducing the new Virtual Grand Piano, based on Native Instruments' Kontakt Player technology.
Suporting both PC and Mac, there are over 200 presets, including emulations of recording styles from the most famous piano recordings in genres from the 1950's through 2005. Different piano response characteristics are also included to cover playing styles such as classical, pop, rock, jazz, and gospel.
Virtual Grand Piano is based on extensive recordings of a 1960 Hamburg Steinway "B" Concert Grand Piano. To provide for maximum versatility in performance and recording situations, presets both with natural room ambience, and presets that are "studio dry" are included. The presets are divided into four velocity response groups to match all available keyboards on the market.
The Art Vista Virtual Grand Piano is available now and has an MSRP of $120.00. An introductory price of $99 is being offered through August 17. A special bundle with Kontakt 2 is also available.
