CLASSIC STEINWAY PIANO WITH MODERN SOUND DESIGN TOOLS On sale now for $39 until Friday, October 26th Announcing The Montclarion Hall Grand Piano version 2.0! We've taken this Soundiron hallmark and given it a complete overhaul with a new look, deeper control features and outstanding new presets. Going beyond an ordinary grand piano library, it comes packed with unique percussive effects, glisses and prepared piano articulations, 3 mic distances, compelling sound design and lush atmospheric content. It has a crisp, solid tone for classical composing, yet works equally well for soul, jazz, rock and pop. The extended effects section includes percussive pounds, slams, string scrapes, steel guitar slides, mallet and pick glisses, sweeps, plucks and more. Whether you need it bold and in your face or gentle and distant, Montclarion can be your go-to for writing intimate ballads or scoring your next horror film. We recorded in wide stereo from three distances. The close microphone pair is ideal for more intimate scoring. The mid microphone is great for a larger acoustic live feel and the far microphone has an incredibly dreamy texture to it. We also included a selection of live sfx ambiences, abstract atmospheres and evolving soundscapes that can accompany the piano in real-time, just to provide a bit of added inspiration. We recorded sustains and release samples, as well as pedal sfx, bench, lid and sheet music sounds. Then we popped the hood and went to work, capturing a selection of sweeps, scrapes, glisses, rumbles and other effects. Then we prepared the piano for a little special treatment, capturing 3 buzzy, resonant and raw tuned string percussion sets. Finally, we decided to do a little bare-handed 3-man ensemble percussion at the piano's expense.
