A 9 foot and 6 inch Grand Imperial Concert Grand piano made in Austria in 2000. This particular piano was played by a Russian concert pianist for 4 years giving it a very warm tone with a huge dynamic range. It stuck out in a room full of world class pianos. It is a very romantic piano and sounds more like a Steinway than a factory tuned Bösendorfer. The Silver Edition allows users to purchase a single license for one Piano from the East West QL Pianos.
Note that even though only the standard 88 piano notes are included in the Silver library, this is a 98-key piano; the resonance of those extra strings provides an extra rich bass sound.
Player Mic Position
10-18 velocities per note of sustain and sustain with pedal
8-12 velocities per note of repetitions and repetitions with pedal

Recorded in a proper piano environment with vintage Neumann microphones, Meitner AD converters and a vintage 8078 Neve console
PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections.
The QL Pianos were produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, the same production team that produced the multi-award winning EastWest QL Symphonic Orchestra and EastWest QL Symphonic Choirs. With the original library, all 4 pianos were included.
This library includes "PLAY 2" as a Sample-Player
