Sound Magic tell us that the sound of Lucky Bean Piano comes from a German vintage upright, with a mellow, resonant and superb sound. Here's their press release with all the details:
Expertly tuned by technicians, this vintage upright maintains an amazing quality of sound. Not sound like a grand piano, but It is a great piano for a modern pop, rock or jazz recording. You will find it sits well in your mix and also it will add special flavor that those grand pianos do not have to your music. During its over 70 years' life, some of the world's greatest pianists have recorded legendary albums on it including Duke Ellington, Van Kliburn, Chick Corea and many others.
The purpose of Artificial Intelligence Assistant Tool (A.I in short) is to free musicians from technicians' work and let us focus on our music, not continuous controller assignments or tweaking the velocity curves! A.I is a bridge which connects your musical feelings and ideas to the technical data. With A.I, musicians no longer need to be technicians. A.I will make achieving your ideal sound more... well, musical! NO NEED TO REMEMBER arcane terminologies, finicky operation steps or the intricate specs of your keyboard.
