Sound Magic has released Version 2.3 of Pianist. Here's their press release with the details:
Pianist is a Multi Effects Unit that has been specially designed to give
you control of your piano tracks/recordings. Unlike other effects units we
see every day, Pianist has been designed with the piano in mind, efficiently
shaping the sound of your keyboard tracks - with the same ease and control
you'd have with any other Virtual Instrument.
Pianist is not just a simple combination of EQ and Dynamic effects, it is a
carefully desgined tool combining several of Sound Magic's acclaimed
technologies. Pianist includes Sound Magic's Award Winning Modeling Technology,
Microphone Modeler Technology, Neo EQ technology and Neo Reverb technology. The
precision and ease of use of these cutting edge systems combine to bring
you unheard of control in creating the sound you need.
Pianist is designed around a simple 3 step system. First, color your piano
sound, changing the darkness or airiness to fit the room, the song, the
ideal. Next, adjust the dynamics, change from hard hitting thunder to dancing
pianissimo. The special desgined compressor here can help you fit your piano
track into any style of music! Finally, play with the space - move it around,
left and right, create lush reverbs, tighten it up with a small club feel.
All of these operations are easy to understand - no complicated technical
terms, no engineering degree needed!
