The additional mic perspectives provide a versatility rarely seen in piano sample libraries. This is essentially 3 grands in one package. Every note in each layer was recorded, with 17 velocity layers of mic perspective 1, 17 velocity layers of perspective 2, and 17 velocity layers of perspective 3, giving this distinctive library a total of over 100 unique samples per note.
The use of multiple perspectives is a long-used trick in the record industry, and is essential for creating the right custom piano sound for mixing. Name almost any piano-based recording artist; Gary Barlow, Delta Goodrem, Lucie Silvas, Christina Aguilera, their engineers use multiple recording perspectives in their piano-based records. Not only does it add versatility in terms of character of sound, but allows for a more realistic integration with the “sound-space” of a track.
Microphone perspective 1 was recorded in stereo 2 inches from the sound-board, for a “larger-than-life” sound, perspective 2 was recorded in stereo directly inside the instrument, for a cleaner, more “up-front” sound, and perspective 3 was recorded in mono 2 metres away from the piano for the “room” sound. Each perspective of the Hohner White Baby Grand (complete) has been painstakingly edited simultaneously, to provide identical start times. Treat this sampled piano library like a live instrument; mix the perspectives like you would a live recording.
