This collection of pianos offers you the right piano for every situation in everyday studio life and, with its clever processing options, is sure to provide the right piano sound for your music.

The piano set consists of 4 different pianos: Walnut (typical sound), Felt, Peculiar (a special and unique sound), and Cologne (an experimental sound). We recorded all articulations as elaborately as possible with many different microphone setups, from complex setups with stereo tube microphones/large condenser/ribbon microphones to stereo coles pairs, small condensers in the bottom and contact microphones. We then incorporated the best three results per articulation into the respective piano.

We enhanced each piano with sophisticated processing options, ranging from simple EQs and filters to resonance reverbs, compressors, reverse sounds, and a granular machine. The Studio Pianos have everything you need.

Finally, you can purchase the single instruments or buy all four as a bundle.
