    I am very excited to share Fracture Sounds’ latest creation, Midnight Grand.This is a stunning Steinway D Concert Grand, sampled in intimate detail in a modern concert hall environment. We prepared the piano with a layer of cotton, to create a delicate, cinematic tone.



    Midnight Grand follows the same ‘frictionless user experience’ philosophy as our other instruments - simply load up the patch and play.

    This instrument is the product of many months of work, and we are incredibly proud to share it with you.

    Picked it up. If anywhere as good as Woodchester, it'll be money well spent.

    Getting some Thomas Newman-esque vibes/use case ideas.

    @willbedford - I can remove this if too OT, but what other instruments did you use in the demo song Silhouette? It's a lovely piece.

    Using the Shivers layer causes glitching on both my mac and pc, whether in Kontakt 6 standalone or in Cubendo alas... rsp

    That layer is one of the main reasons I'm buying this, would like to know more about the glitch issue.

    I use 64 sample size buffer on both systems... maybe that is it (I know albion 1 legato had issues with that, but no other Kontakt library I have had)....I also wondered if it was that my streaming drive was not ssd, but I copied it to an ssd drive and tried it there and that glitched too...
    I moved my sample buffer to 128 and that though not completely glitch free, glitched significantly less.

    Clearly it is a cpu issue with low latencies.

    This. I bought it without hearing one note of a demo or walkthrough.

    But support at fracture said they reproduced it and sent me a fix which I am downloading as we speak. Will let them know and you if it fixes it :)

    edit: and that fix worked like a charm :)
    Quickest fix ever :)

    @willbedford, I appreciated the comparison page but you'll want to make one tweak: the Woodchester is homey, not homely. :)

    Very much looking forward to spending some time with the Midnight Grand. Congrats on the new release.
