Grand Piano Effects


The 1990 Prepared Grand Piano is the most comprehensive collection of deep-sampled Prepared Piano samples on the market. The library contains over 44.000 samples and 38 highly unique and playable articulations, including everything from playing directly on piano strings with Guitar Picks, E-Bow, Mallets, Forks, Ping Pong Balls, Paper, Bottle Caps, Coke Cans, Blankets, Wires etc. The end result is an extraordinary piano experience unlike anything ever done.

The Prepared Piano includes 5 unique microphones/positions, including Neumann 87’s, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon’s, AKG 414’s and Neumann KM 184’s. Everything was lovingly recorded & processed at 96k at a famous hi-tech British Studio, Scotland’s Premiere Recording Studio – Gorbals Sound, through one of the greatest custom NEVE desks in existence before expertly downsampling to a smooth 48k for ease of streaming. We also recorded every single sample through both TC6000 and Bricasti studio reverbs, so you literally have the best recordings that can possibly be done.

We sampled the piano through two of the best studio reverbs in the world: TC6000 and Bricasti. They can be activated with a single click, giving you instant access to two of the most studio-defining reverbs of all time. We sampled the piano through the reverbs using a pristine signal path designed by some of the world’s best engineers. No more convolution!
