YOUR ULTIMATE PIANO ?
"..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."
TRUE SUSTAIN SAMPLING
When 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.
PRO EDITION: MIC CHANNEL MODE
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.
MIC SELECT, 4 BAND EQ, ATTACK / DECAY
4 BAND SOLID EQ
ATTACK / DECAY
TAILOR IT TO YOUR TOUCH
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.
