Abbey Road Studios CFX Lite from GARRITAN is an ARIA-powered virtual instrument with a library that captures the wide palette of tonal colors and subtle, expressive nuances of a Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano. 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 craftsment – 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
  • 20 layers of detail, including separate sample sets for pedals-up, sustain pedal down, and soft pedaling
  • EQ controls and a multitude of adjustable piano parameters
  • Customizable velocity and dynamic range
  • Convolution reverb, including outboard reverbs from Abbey Road Studios
  • Timbre Effect — simulates the change in timbre produced when instruments are played back at a speed different from the one they were recorded at
  • Partial pedaling (requires continuous pedal controller), and re-pedaling
  • Powered by the included ARIA Player — no need for a separate sampler

Abbey Road Studios CFX Lite - Virtual Grand Piano (Download) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from awesome so far I got this for a different sound (and possible upgrade) from Addictive Keys, which in turn was an upgrade over the built-in Logic pro pianos.� The first thing I noticed, especially with the full patches, is how dynamic it is.� I have to play more carefully and in control than I'm used to with digital piano sounds--that's a good thing!� You'd have the same issue sitting at a grand when you haven't done so in a while.�� Another reason I bought this vs a few others is the lack of iLok--I'm not a fan even knowing that iLok has software-only versions now.�� The only negative so far is the long loading times compared to what I'm used to. I don't blame the product for this though; my macbook pro is older and I don't have a fast hard drive.� I'd have the same issue with any piano sample library of any size.� Once loaded it's fine. I also want to give props to product support.� I had some questions about transferring to other computers and they were very helpful and prompt.
