This electronic download of Galaxy II Steinway from Best Services is a virtual-instrument based on the well-regarded Steinway Model D 270 grand piano. It is powered by Native Instruments Kontakt Player, which is included with your download. This library features over 2,000 samples, each recorded at 24-bit resolution and available to you in stereo or 5.1 surround. All samples were recorded in the recording hall of Galaxy Studios, Belgium.

Ten modeled velocity zones provide a smooth and wide dynamic range, while chromatic and multiple-velocity resonance and release samples provide realistic interplay between samples. As for the host Kontakt player, it offers solid performance, direct-from-disk streaming, lossless sample compression, and a user interface designed specifically for Galaxy Pianos.
