The very Piano played on Adele’s “Hello” and countless other Hits

Recorded at Metropolis with 8 different pairs of state-of-the-art microphones and the highest-quality preamps and converters, Waves’ Grand Rhapsody virtual piano delivers the same majestic sound as the studios' original Fazioli piano, with added features that only a plugin can provide.

From pop/rock songwriting to electronic production to intimate jazz and classical piano, Grand Rhapsody offers a wide range of tonality for musicians and producers. You can blend up to 3 mic pairs of your choice and choose their position; control how much of the pedal, key up and sympathetic resonance you mix into the overall sound; and apply Waves’ award-winning effects including EQ, compressor, limiter, delay, and reverb based on Waves’ state-of-the-art H-Reverb.

Whether you prefer to load one of the expertly programmed presets or create your own sounds from scratch, Grand Rhapsody furnishes you with all the warmth and richness you’d expect from one of the most luxurious pianos in the world – plus a little extra, from Waves.

  • Perfect sampling of the Fazioli F228 grand piano housed at London’s Metropolis Studios
  • The very piano played on Adele’s “Hello” and countless other hits
  • Meticulously recorded using 8 pairs of microphones

Dies ist ein wunderschönes Klavier, bei dem man viele verschiedene Klänge einstellen kann. Man hat viele verschiedene Mikrofonposition, die man zusammenbasteln kann und man kann auch alle anderen wichtigen Parameter verändern wie den Raum, den Anschlag und so weiter. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist super.

I love the sound of this piano - it seems to be a bit heavy on the CPU, but it is definitely playable and usable. I've experimented just a little bit with the cool features like virtual mic placement, but in general the presets are fine for me. I use the non-HD samples - if I were making a big record for a major release or a solo piano album or something I might download the high-def versions but to my ears for my project studio, the lower-def samples sound great There is a significant delay when you first start it up as the samples are loading. I see that as a very small inconvenience considering the quality of the sound you get once they are loaded!
