K-Sounds is proud to present Epic Grand, an amazing piano sample library for the Korg Kronos featuring close-miked stereo samples of a Japanese grand. With pristine samples throughout the dynamic range and plenty of sustain, this piano is designed to make your music truly epic.
Epic Grand for the Korg Kronos offers unlooped samples for a natural decay up to 20 seconds. Eight velocity layers provide realistic dynamic response consistently across the keyboard. Additional independent elements such as damper resonance, release resonance, hammer noise samples, and multi-dynamic damper noise samples bring the piano to life.
This product offers a unique implementation of damper resonance: Real sampled resonance is provided - far surpassing mere digital effects or convolution. And because the resonance is presented as an independent component of the instrument, its volume may be adjusted, and it can be disabled entirely.
Five layer / split combinations are provided. Each one combines the piano with multiple instruments that can be seamlessly activated and disabled as you play. You could begin by playing solo piano, add strings, add electric piano, and then return to solo piano - all without causing a break in the sound! Taking this concept further, additional combinations allow users to freely add or subtract different elements from the piano sound. Damper resonance, release resonance, hammer noises, and damper noises can be easily mixed and matched seamlessly according to your musical needs.
At K-Sounds, we believe the most important requirement of a piano sample library is that it be incredibly playable. With that goal in mind, Epic Grand was played constantly during its development process. As a result, we believe it is one of the most musical and playable virtual pianos available.Download Support Material-PDF Epic Grand Kronos Format User Guide
