EastWest Pianos - Bosendorfer 290 Overview

  • 1Description

Available for download, the EastWest Quantum Leap Pianos Bosendorfer 290 Gold Edition is a virtual piano that samples a 98-key, 9.6' Grand Imperial Concert Grand. The piano itself has a warm, dynamic, resonant, and romantic tone. The extended low range gives body to the sound that you can't get from a traditional 88-key piano. Even the patches that only utilize 88 keys benefit from the resonance the extra ten keys provide.

The gold edition offers 16-bit samples, rather than the 24-bit samples provided in the Platinum version. It also provides you with a single player-perspective microphone position. All of this is useful for people who have slower computers.

Samples are triggered and played through the accompanying PLAY software, a 64-bit audio engine that powers the EastWest Quantum library. This software is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms and operates in AU, AAX, and VST formats.

Between 10 and 18 velocities per note with dedicated samples for soft pedal, sustain pedal, and soft sustain
8 to 12 velocities per note of repetitions and repetitions with pedal
5 to 8 velocities of soft pedal and soft pedal with sustain pedal
Proprietary resonance captured on the Bosendorfer
Repetition samples taken from 180 BPM performances for a true repetition sound and not simply an alternate take. The playback engine automatically senses true repetitions and responds accordingly
Software detects true repetitions
Pedal resonance recorded for every note at multiple velocities, as well as with the soft pedal
Release samples with software envelope follower
Piano lid position simulation
Samples captured in a proper piano environment using vintage Neumann microphones, Meitner AD converters, and a vintage 8078 Neve console
Instrument plays back via the PLAY Advanced Sample Engine, a dedicated audio engine/interface providing a powerful streaming engine
Articulation matrix for quick and straightforward loading
PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections
Articulations on each piano include:

  • Sustain
  • Sustain with pedal
  • Repetitions
  • Repetitions with pedal
  • Soft pedal
  • Soft pedal with sustain pedal
  • Staccato
  • Release trails
