K-Sounds’ Signature Piano is a sample library for the Yamaha Motif XS featuring beautiful samples of a 7’6” Japanese grand piano. Offering pristine stereo samples throughout the dynamic range and a slightly ambient studio sound with plenty of sustain, Signature Piano is poised to become your signature sound.
Signature Piano offers two sample banks, both fully programmed in a variety of voices and performances: The large 495Mb bank provides up to eight velocity layers in a single piano sound - double what is typically available for traditional workstation keyboards. True-sampled damper resonance adds a lush quality to sustained notes. Release resonance and hammer noise samples* provide extra authenticity to the end of every note. A 113Mb bank is also provided for quick loading. Impressive in its own right, it features 4 sampled velocities plus damper resonance!
Signature Piano offers a unique implementation of sympathetic resonance heard when the damper pedal is pressed: 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.
At K-Sounds, we believe the most important requirement of a piano sample is that it be refreshingly playable. That’s why Signature Piano was played constantly during its development process. The result is far greater than just a collection of samples. We believe it is one of the most musical and playable sampled pianos available.
* To avoid excessive polyphony consumption, hammer noise samples are not active until you enable them within a performance.Download User Guide K-Sounds Signature Piano - Motif XS Format User Guide
