Grand Piano Sound Library For E-Mu Samplers


E-MU Systems has announced its new Platinum 88 Grand Piano Sound Library that offers Emulator X and Proteus X users over 7GB of 24-bit grand piano samples.
E-MU tell us that the Platinum 88 uses a meticulously sampled Steinway Model L concert grand piano. It features twelve layers of samples for each of the piano’s 88 notes: five layers with the sustain pedal up, six with the sustain pedal down, and a layer entirely dedicated to note-off sounds. Every note was recorded through its natural delay, enabling the Platinum 88 bank to be completely free of loops. The samples were then mapped to their proper key and velocity positions in Emulator X and Proteus X and programmed with Pedals and Continuous Controllers.
If you don't want to tie up loads of sampler memory, 1GB and 200MB 16-bit versions of the piano are also included allowing for more flexibility.
Pricing and Availability:
The Platinum 88 is priced at £109.99 (including VAT) in the UK
