SampleTekks White Grand - The Ultimate Studio Grand Piano
"The White Grand is the best piano sample I have heard. It sits beautifully in a mix, as well as alone. It actually sounds alive!" - Paul Linford; film composer, mixer, programmer for Trevor Rabin
"I had no idea a sampled piano could be this good. It was as if someone told me they had a guitar, and what they showed me was a '54 Strat." - Trevor Rabin; Film Composer, Guitarist
"In the professional world we don't have time to waste in the studio, so when I need an acoustic piano, I always start with White Grand - it just works. It's presence and brightness is hard to achieve with other piano samples" - Jermey Whaley; producer, composer, musician
"Probably the very best pop/studio piano that has ever been released. In terms of its evenness and playability, and its consistency of presence from pp to fff, I think it is the best piano sample that has ever been released, period." - Bruce Richardson; composer, sound designer, music-technology guru.
SampleTekk proudly presents the White Grand, in our opinion, the best contemporary pop/rock/jazz grand piano in the sampled world today. We recorded The White Grand with the finest equipment available, using a specially designed digital recording technique to give you unequalled performance and sound. Prepare to explore a tactile and expressive feast, unparalleled in sampled pianos today.
You get an astonishing 32 different velocity samples, not only layers, but 32 DIFFERENT samples per note, (plus 4 release samples). This gives you a control over the dynamics that surpasses all today existing sampled pianos.
The instrument was recorded in Studio Kuling, Sweden, in a room specially built and designed to record acoustic instruments. All equipment used where chosen to deliver the best result possible.
