Free Grand Piano for OS X and
20th April 2012
Sound Magic has announced the
release of its free grand piano, Piano One,
for Mac OS X and Windows 64-bit. Besides the
previous Windows version, Piano One now provides:
Native Windows 64-Bit VSTi Version.
AudioUnit 32-Bit/64-Bit Version for OS X.
VST 32-Bit/64-Bit Version for OS X.
The Sound of Piano One comes from
the Yamaha C7 concert grand, a true workhorse in the
professional piano world, appearing on famous
concert stages, in international competitions and in
prestigious music events throughout the world.
By utilizing the Sound Magic Hybrid
Modeling Engine, Piano One offers both the realistic
sound of sampling and the playability of modeling.
Hybrid Modeling provides an instantaneous feeling -
no delay - and a truer and richer sound than can be
created with either sampling or modeling alone, says
Sound Magic. What's more, Piano One utilizes only
150MB, which is quite a small footprint, making
Piano One usable even on older PCs. There is no
waiting time when loading and the CPU usage is so
small that it's virtually unnoticeable.
