THE STRUCK GRAND PIANO

The Struck Grand is an extraordinary instrument collection that delves deep into the fine art of piano abuse. This 9 GB collection explores all of the ways a 1926 Steinway Model L parlor grand piano can be “played” from the far side of the hammer.


You’ll find well over 4000 samples of pick plucks, steel hammers, finger mutes, harmonics, slides, mallets, glisses, scrapes and otherworldly sustaining effects over the full note range. This collection shines as equal part stringed/tuned percussion and super-harp/mega-zither with a huge key range and rich, complex musical character.


The Struck Grand features 3 extraordinary new control systems that will unlock new creative and production possibilities. The new “Layer Builder” system let’s you easily create an endless variety of unique complex sonic flavors, with total control over up to 12 independent layers of sound.


Let us re-invent your whole concept of tuned percussion with the simple turn of a dial. The library also includes a bonus selection of real-world space and FX convolution impulses and ambient drones, tonal pads and evolving soundscapes, all with custom morphing and dual-layer mix control.


This library goes far beyond any other piano “effect” library you’ve heard before. And as always, we’ve gone the extra mile with profound total attention to detail through our nuanced programming, total user parameter control, sonic flexibility and simply unmatched playability. You’ll feel The Struck Grand live and breathe under your fingertips.


As always there is a range of automatable LFO, EQ, filter, custom convolution and sound-shaping systems to expand on the creative possibilities that this library offers.

 

Info

If you love guitar or harp, you’ll love our Gliss/Strum Creator. This unique tool allows you to instantly start playing life-like strums and glisses over the whole key range, with a huge variety of chords and total real-time control over direction, stroke alternation, string, speed, dynamics, palm muting, pick attack and more. Each parameter can be automated on the fly, allowing incredibly organic performances.


The Struck, Harmonic, Mallet and Gliss elements are perfect for dramatic and suspenseful scoring, while the Steel Hammer, Slide and Picked sections area ideal for expressive and nuanced classical and ethnic compositions.


With rumbling bass and glistening highs, we’ve captured each articulation with ultra-close, dry micing right on the strings, for exquisite life-like detail, stunning presence and fidelity.
