K-Sounds presents Epic Grand, a sound library for the Yamaha Montage featuring close-miked stereo samples of a Yamaha C7 grand piano. With pristine samples throughout the dynamic range and generous sustain, this piano is designed to make your music truly epic.
Two bank sizes are included. The 504Mb bank offers eight sampled dynamic levels for realistic dynamic response across the keyboard. Additional independent elements such as damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noise samples bring the piano to life. 30 performances cater to a wide variety of musical needs. The Super Knob is musically useful in every performance, whether increasing the piano's distance from the listener, fading between layers, providing dynamic control, or adding effects.
The 125Mb bank includes four sampled dynamic levels plus damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noises. Its 30 performances offer the same sonic variety and real-time control as the larger bank.
Instead of using effects to simulate damper resonance, Epic Grand provides real sampled resonance to create incredibly lush sustains. As with a real piano, the resonance responds to the sustain pedal in real time, even if notes have already been played. Because the resonance is presented as an independent component of the instrument, its volume can be adjusted, and it can be disabled entirely.
