This piano is the epitome of quality living room grand pianos. It was built in 1991 and has been maintained in pristine condition. With strings that sound brand new, it sounds like it just rolled off the factory floor.
Most pianos that we hear in our favorite albums weren’t recorded in a concert hall on a 10 foot grand piano. They were recorded in on smaller pianos in smaller rooms. As much as we love the sound of massive pianos, it’s not always the right sound for a recording. Sometimes you need something more intimate. Something with a bit more character.
New York L 1926 is not your typical 9 foot concert grand piano. The Model L is just under 6 feet long, giving it that shorter piano sound without being so short that the strings sound like rubber bands. Put that in a smaller room and you get an incredibly intimate, real sound. It feels like you are in the room with the piano.
The lite version has just a single (but pretty awesome) mic perspective. We used a pair of omnidirectional mics in the most resonant spots on the soundboard to give a clear, vibrant sound.
Keep your Hard Drive
We put a ton of work into keeping this thing lean so you can have an incredible sounding piano without taking up 50GB of hard drive space. We cut every corner we could to get this down to as small a footprint as possible without sacrificing audio quality. The result is just 45MB of hard disk space. This means you can install this on any computer no matter how small or portable. And while such a small footprint might sound too good to be true, take a listen to the expressiveness and realism you get out of this thing and you will fall in love instantly.
