"..It might be. Pianos are very personal.
There is always another 'greatest': more samples, more articulations, more tricks.
But this one is ours, the way we wanted it.
We think it's smoother to play, cleaner-sounding and a bit more real than any other sampled piano out there.
We hope you agree."




SteinwayWhen you play a note on a piano, one string rings.
When you play a note and press the sustain pedal, all the strings ring.
Most piano VSTis only do the first thing, and then fake the second thing.
We recorded both.
21 velocity layers per note with sustain pedal up and down.
When you press down your sustain pedal, you'll understand why we did it.


The Hammersmith Screen 1


Hammersmith with a mic channel expanded: from here you can switch the mic choice via the drop down menu, EQ the sound and adjust envelope parameters.

Waht Do the mics sound like


All players and all MIDI keyboards are different.
Hammersmith will learn how you play your keyboard and create a custom velocity curve just for you.
Tweak it further, add some randomness, or even compress the velocity curve - it's up to you.

The Hammersmith Recording


British Grove is Mark Knopfler's recording facility in Hammersmith, West London. Built in 2002 to represent the state of the art both in digital and analogue recording, there is no better studio in the UK. The recording room is large with a double height ceiling, and a very clear, pure acoustic.

User feedback..

The Hammersmith has certainly made quite an impression - we've been getting some great feedback and thought we'd share it:“Love it, have put it on a record already!”
Gary Barlow

“I’m loving this piano, so many ways to tweak it in the arrangement and mix. The real sustain sounds great. Nice job, I’m already using it this movie!”
Neil Davidge

“..there are SO many different textures you can get out of this one piano - and the lows are just plain beautiful. Simply awesome stuff that will certainly be at the forefront of my piano cues from now on.”
Scott Fritz,

“It’s an amazing instrument! The tonal variations are completely unique and very versatile and the multi-sampled sustain is incredible. Uber-acoustic piano!”
Bob Derkach

“We've been searching for years for a legit sounding piano. This is it!”

“We own over a dozen piano sets - and this is the first one that plays like a piano. In short, Hammersmith kicks ass.”

Auf der Suche nach einer möglichst naturgetreuen Wiedergabe eines Konzertflügels für Übungszwecke und kleinere Live-Konzerte bin ich nach mehreren anderen Versuchen auf The Hammersmith gestoßen. Er klingt für mich einfach am natürlichsten und "rundesten", wie eine gute, "gediegene" Rundfunkstudio-Aufnahme. Ich werde ihn für klassische und romantische Musik benutzen.

The Hammersmith Professional Edition is something I will use in rock mixes & it is a lovely sounding piano that offers more versatility than most because of the microphone selections available.
