The world’s finest pianos in one instrument
The Concert Grand YF3 is based on robot-assisted deep multisampling of a 9’ Yamaha CFIII concert grand piano, an instrument built from the best spruce, rock maple and mahogany woods along with hand-molded, sand-casted iron to create an undisputed premium instrument known for its magnificent responsiveness that is universally loved worldwide. Using Schoeps microphones for the close miking and DPA mics for medium-distanced coincident pair, this spectacular piano was recorded at the legendary Fonoprint Studios in Bologna, Italy, in Via Bocca di Lupo, within the walls of a 15th century convent. In addition to our many IK sample sessions over the years, Fonoprint has hosted the very best Italian and international artists from Ennio Morricone to Luciano Pavarotti to Andrea Bocelli and is a true jewel of the Emilia-Romagna region.
Our sound design team then used subtle techniques perfected over 2 decades of virtual instrument programming to bring these thousands of samples to life. Pianoverse’s groundbreaking new engine uses completely redesigned round robin, voice management and other techniques to deliver a seamlessly authentic experience.
Pianoverse also shines with a unique combination of performance controls for both stage and studio work. To customize each piano’s sound, Pianoverse offers adjustable lid position, harp resonance, pedal noise or even the noise of the piano mallets, all things that are usually only available in modelled instruments. And for live use, all three pedals offer continuous control, including half- and catch-pedaling and una corda, to deliver an unmatched performance experience. Whether for classical, jazz, pop, Latin or any other genre, Pianoverse always offers truly superior piano sound and feel.
Must-have studio processing
Pianoverse provide two sets of microphones per piano so the user can choose if they prefer a more modern and in-the-face sound, or a more classical sound. On top of that, for traditional sound-shaping and mixing, the Pianoverse engine also offers a comprehensive suite of must-have effects tools.
There’s selectable EQ and compression, each with multiple modes, for both instrument and room stereo microphone pairs. And a dedicated master channel offers EQ and a VCA-style limiter for final mastering polish, while a Stereo Width control quickly sets the width of the image ¬– and even reverses it from player perspective to audience perspective.
Revolutionary generative Spaces to explore
Where other piano instruments end, Pianoverse is only getting started. Using a new generative reverberation engine, Pianoverse transports any of its concert-grade pianos to 30 sonic destinations, each with its own unique ambient sound. These go from traditional concert halls and studio spaces to less traditional ones like a warehouse or a vault, and otherworldly cinematic environments like iceberg, desert or even Mars!
Traditional spaces such as a club and cathedral are perfect for regular piano performances, but journey further afield to discover rich, interactive spaces that are perfect for all types of movie soundtracks. Each space uses unique sound generative techniques to create incredibly evocative soundscapes, inspiring your creativity at each step. Plus each space includes flexible controls to further shape your sound and create never-heard-before cinematic sounds and textures.
These immersive, inspiring sound design options deliver the most complete ambient sound-sculpting piano instrument ever.
Unique powerful creative effects
In addition to custom-created Spaces, Pianoverse also offers you 12 new creative effects to design your own sounds. These effects range from new cinematic spatial effects to must-have studio effects and can be inserted on 3 simultaneous slots: the first slot being a parallel send effect, while slots 2 and 3 are insert effects. Then, uniquely in Pianoverse effects, there are also 4 modulation sources – 2 envelopes and 2 LFOs – that may be assigned to various parameters in these 3 effects slots to further animate and move the sound and create extreme effects when desired.
All together these effects offer an arsenal of sound-sculpting tools that cannot be found in any other piano instrument
