The Abbey Road Studios CFX Concert Grand from Garritan is a virtual piano modeled after the Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano, an instrument characterized by a wide palette of tonal colors and the ability to create subtle, expressive nuances. The instrument was recorded in Abbey Road Studios' Studio One using a collection of the finest microphones.

Studio and Piano
Studio One's acoustics offer a warm and clear sound with a reverb time of 2.3 seconds, ideal for recording a piano.
Each CFX is entirely hand-built by a small team comprising some of the world's most experienced and skilled craftsmen. The result of their work is a piano with such tonal presence that it can be heard over the sound of a full symphony orchestra in the largest of concert halls.
Microphone Perspectives
Classic
Most faithfully captures the natural tonal character, clarity, and nuance of the instrument.

Contemporary
Creates a piano sound that is bright and hard with lots of attack from the hammers, but also maintains the piano's warmth with intimate ambience.

Ambience - Schoeps MK 2H Microphones
