Viennese Tradition of Piano Making

The Bösendorfer Grand Upright 130 incorporates the experience of almost two centuries of grand piano making. Although physically an upright piano, the instrument surprises with subtle nuances and a powerful bass, and yet with a pure and pristine piano sound, without the broader tonal colors usually added by the large body of a concert grand.

The legendary pure and rich Bösendorfer sound is based on the Viennese tradition of piano making with its complex construction. Bösendorfer uses more than 80% naturally dried resonant spruce wood to build an instrument – more than any other manufacturer. When a note is played, the integrated spruce components become acoustically active, forming a complete resonating body similar in principle to a violin. Its precise mechanics offer optimum power transmission with maximum controllability. The carefully hand-spun bass strings – steel core strings with one or two layers of copper – also contribute to its warm and sonorous sound.

Sampling Precision

To capture the Bösendorfer Grand Upright 130 with all its subtleties, Vienna’s engineers developed a highly precise motion-control system based on a solenoid that controls a noise-free “robot finger”. The micro-controller moves the finger with super-human precision, providing flexible curvatures for down-strokes and release movements, the latter corresponding with the preceding note length and various release speeds.

8 Microphone Positions

In order to capture this marvelous instrument in Stage B of Synchron Stage Vienna, the team of recording engineers used multiple high-end microphone arrays, affording an abundance of options for creating your individual sound.

Standard Library:

  • Close 1 – Condenser (Schoeps 2 MK4 ORTF)
  • Main/Room Mic – Decca Tree Stereo (Neumann KM 133)
  • Mid 2 (Schoeps KFM6 over the piano)
  • Main/Room Mic – Decca Tree Mono (Neumann KM 133)

Full Library:

  • Close 1 – Condenser (Schoeps 2 MK4 ORTF)
  • Close 2 – Ribbon (Royer SF24 Blumlein)
  • Close 3 – Condenser Large Diaphragm (Neumann 2 TLM 170 Cardioids)    
  • Mid 1 (Sennheiser MKH 40 ORTF behind the piano)
  • Mid 2 (Schoeps KFM6 over the piano)
  • Main/Room Mic – Decca Tree Stereo (Neumann KM 133)
  • Main/Room Mic – Decca Tree Mono (Neumann KM 133)
  • Main Surround – Stereo (Neumann KM 184)

Even if you're not using a surround setup, you get more ambience variations and spatial depth out of the Full Library by adding the room and surround microphones' signals to your stereo mix.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
