Acoustica Pianissimo Virtual Piano - Virtual Instrument (Download)
Key Features
  • Sampled Steinway Model D Grand Piano
  • 250MB of Quadruple-Strike Samples
  • Built-In Reverb Emulates Acoustic Space
  • Adjustable Piano-Noise Parameters
Available for download, Acoustica's Pianissimo is a virtual instrument which emulates the sound of a Steinway Model D. In addition to its 250MB of quadruple-strike samples (important for velocity layering), this sample library provides a built-in reverb for recreating naturalistic ambiance. You can also control the variables that inevitably make a piano sound more real, such as pedal and key-release noise. For a more natural tone when depressing your MIDI-controller's sustain pedal, Pianissimo offers a sympathetic resonance-modeling system which simulates the harmonic build-up of continually sustained notes over time.
