K-Sounds presents Signature Piano in Korg Kronos / Kronos X and OASYS  formats, featuring detailed samples of a Yamaha C7 grand piano.

Designed with quality in mind, Signature Piano’s sample data was  recorded and edited at 176.4kHz, 24 / 32 bits, then converted to  Korg-compatible specifications for the final product. The stereo image  is wide, centered, and mono-compatible. Every note has a generous, natural-sounding sustain.

Signature Piano offers eight sampled dynamic layers plus damper  resonance, release resonance, hammer noise samples, and multi-dynamic  damper noise samples. The OASYS format provides two bank sizes of  long-looped samples. The Kronos / Kronos X format takes advantage of Korg’s new User Sample Banks feature, offering a single bank of  unlooped samples up to twenty seconds long.

Signature Piano’s damper resonance samples are true recordings of the  sympathetic string resonance heard when a piano’s damper pedal is  pressed. Sampling the actual resonance of a real piano provides  authenticity that surpasses digital effects and convolution. This resonance is presented as an independent component of the  instrument, allowing users to adjust its volume or disable it  altogether.

In addition to a variety of programs, four layer / split combinations  are provided. Each one blends the piano with multiple instruments that  can be independently activated and disabled during a performance. A  keyboardist could begin by playing solo piano, add strings, add electric piano, and then return to solo piano - all without  causing a break in the sound! Taking this concept further, additional  combinations allow users to seamlessly add or subtract different  elements from the piano sound. Damper resonance, release resonance, hammer noises, and damper noises can be independently  enabled and disabled according to the performer’s musical needs.

Signature Piano is designed to be incredibly playable. It was constantly  played during its development to ensure that it responds dynamically  and musically.
