The 1971 Estonia Grand Piano is a comprehensively deep-sampled soviet-era Grand Piano. The Estonia Piano line is known as the secret Steinway of Eastern Europe – with a uniquely dark, emotional, and melancholic characteristic.
The Estonia Grand contains both Sustains, Staccato and Plucked articulations, which can seamlessly be tailored together based on your compositional needs. The short note staccatos were recorded with 5 RR pr. velocity layer – offering you the ability to play incredibly fast licks with clear definition on the attack of the sound. The 8Dio 1971 Estonia Grand Piano also contains our latest Chaos FX designed for sound design. We included many of our new custom Textural Convolution Delays, which gives the instrument the ability to delay textures from other non-piano sound sources.
We recorded and processed the Estonia Grand at 24-Bit / 96Khz at a meticulously run soviet era scoring stage, before downsampling to 48k for ease of streaming. The library contains 6 different types of vintage microphone stems, including Neumann UM57’s, Vintage Lomo’s, Sennheiser MKH40’s, Aston Spirits, Neumann KM 184’s and a mixed microphone position which was made by combining all microphones used in the sessions. We recorded with a 100% analogue signal flow, leaving you with an expressive and unique soviet piano.
