The New 1928 Scoring Piano overview

Welcome to The New 1928 Scoring Scoring Piano, one of the most precious and sought after pianos in the history of pianos. Namely, a specific series of ivory covered Scoring grands produced in Germany in 1928. This particular series and era are known to be one of the best and the building quality still stands unmatched. We were lucky enough to record a model that had the full set of original strings from 1928.

It is the perfect piano for soundtrack composers, songwriters and people looking for an advanced emotional and resonant piano. In addition, the instrument was recorded with two sets of microphones (close/internal) and (ambient/player), so users can adjust the sound to their liking ranging from recordings inside the piano to a natural player perspective.

We also added a variety of controls (ex. pedal volume, release volume, noise reduction, EQ etc) and a visual velocity editor, so you can fully sculpt the piano to your liking. The piano also includes a great selection of convolution reverbs and convolution effects – and a bonus selection of morphing patches (ex. Guitars, Caisa, Marimba, Rhodes, Crotales, Bowed Percussion, Glass Marimba & Glockenspiel) that can be blended directly with the piano.


The 1928 Scoring Scoring Piano is the first ever to have round-robin based sustains and round-robin based staccatos in combination. The round-robin based sustains allows you to get a hyper-natural variation in the sound – even when playing slow and with pedal down. The staccatos were recorded separately, since the attack of a short note on a piano differs then a sustain. The 1928 comes with several different patches that allows you to play it as a normal VST without round-robin or with all round-robins loaded – all depending on your need for realism and clarity.

Microphone Options

The 1928 Scoring Scoring Piano contains over 11.000 samples and two different microphone perspectives, including Close Microphone and Player Microphone, which was a mix comprised of 8 Neumann Microphones ran through a NEVE console. The close microphone consists of microphones close to the soundboard of the piano – highly intimate and with a clear sensation of the resonance. The player microphone is from a natural player perspective, so you are getting the same sound as you would playing the piano in reality.


The 1928 Scoring Scoring Piano contains a variety of unique options from ability to control volume of pedal for added realism. Dedicated velocity curve controls – that allows you to sculpt the responsiveness of the piano with a single mouse click. This is fantastic for dialing in the piano with your keyboard controller, so it feels completely realistic. We also added a wealth of custom convolution reverbs, so you can create more otherworldly textures and a unique denoise options that allows you to remove any natural occuring noises and resonances in the piano.

Piano Blending Option

The 1928 Scoring Scoring Piano contains a variety of custom piano morph options, so you can blend the piano with a selected amount of instruments and create completely new instruments with a single click. The Piano Morphs allows you to blend any/all of the following instruments with the piano, including Guitars, Caisa, Marimba, Rhodes, Crotales, Bowed Percussion, Glass Marima, and Glockenspiel. You can add any of the piano blend options to the piano and even control their individual volumes for mix perfection.
