After the successful launch of the UVI SoundPack Acoustic Grand Piano, and UVI SoundPack Baby Grand Piano, UVI Soundsource brings up a new very good sounding Upright Piano, that would be used a lot these days in modern Rock, Pop and even Jazz music. "To find a good sounding upright piano was not an easy task, so we did look over several models and several places, until we found the one that delighted our team, and to be honest: we love it. A modern and high-end version from the manufacturer Seiler was unanimously picked to be the one. As you can hear in the demos, it sounds really close, warm and musical. As for all our sounds, we did use extremely good microphones, excellent sounding mic pre and insanely good analog to digital converters. Every single note was carefully multi-sampled in multiple velocity levels. We also used the same special technique, introduced in Baby Grand Piano, to capture the true sound when playing with the sustain pedal, to add another level of realism. Thanks to UVI Engine's advanced keygroup layers and rule switching, the sustain pedal and release samples perform and "feel" like a real piano. At the end of the process, during the editing of samples, we consulted a great instrumentalist to test the result of this work, then we were able to even improve the instrument's response to make it really enjoyable. We are glad to introduce a new beautiful sounding piano, this wonderful 5 GB library brings up a strong upright piano full of personality and musicality, and will fully completes our Grand Piano series ". said Alain Etchart, Founder and Director of Marketing at Univers Sons / Ultimate Sound Bank. UPRIGHT GRAND PIANO is available online for a special introductory price of $49 (instead $69) until June 30.
