Welcome to 8DIO Legacy Piano series and the 1928 Steinway Piano VST – a collection of deep-sampled world-class pianos. Legacy Piano series marks the next evolution in piano sampling and first virtual piano series to ever have round robin (repetition samples) on both sustains and staccato, which means you get a more varied, fluent and expressive piano.
We are launching our Legacy series with the release of one of the most precious and sought after pianos in the history of pianos, namely a specific series of ivory covered Steinway grand that were produced in Germany in 1928. This particular series and era is known to be one of the best and the building quality still stands unmatched – even the strings are still original 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. Alien Drum, Pipe Harps, Bells, Guitar) that can morphed directly with the piano.
