K-Sounds is proud to present Epic Grand, an amazing sample library for the Yamaha Motif XS featuring close-miked stereo samples of a Japanese grand. With pristine samples throughout the dynamic range and generous sustain, this piano is designed to make your music truly epic.
Two bank sizes are included for the Yamaha Motif XS. The 505Mb bank offers eight sampled dynamic levels for realistic dynamic response across the keyboard. Additional independent elements such as damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noise samples bring the piano to life. The 126Mb bank includes four sampled dynamic layers plus damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noises. Despite its smaller size, the 126Mb bank sounds incredible. Check out the full array of demos for each bank size below.
Epic Grand 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 bypassed entirely.
At K-Sounds, we believe the most important requirement of a virtual piano 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 sampled pianos available.Download User Guide Epic Grand - Yamaha Motif XS Format User Guide
