Based on a 9' Bösendorfer 280 Vienna Concert grand piano

  • Captured using DPA and Schoeps microphones

  • Recorded at the legendary Fonoprint Studios

  • 20 GB of sound content

  • 50 instrument presets

Black Diamond B280 is based on a Bösendorfer 280 Vienna Concert, also known as the Concert Grand 280VC. With a timbre all its own, Black Diamond B280 can easily convey darker moods while conserving the warm musicality for which the Austrian capital is celebrated.

Like Concert Grand YF3, IKused DPA microphones for the close miking and Schoeps mics for medium-distanced coincident pair to record this spectacular piano at the legendary Fonoprint Studios in Bologna, Italy, within the walls of a 15th century convent. In addition to our many IK sample sessions over the years, Fonoprint has hosted the very best Italian and international artists from Ennio Morricone to Luciano Pavarotti to Andrea Bocelli.

I tried to read Midi data, but it does not recognize any data other than the data in "channel 1" and no sound comes out. Is there a reason for this?
