    Pianos Virtual Instrument

    product_page_box_Pianos.jpg

    Overview

    After two years of recording, editing, and programming, EastWest and Quantum Leap proudly present the most detailed collection of the world's finest grand pianos ever recorded in one of the 'temples of sound', EASTWEST STUDIOS (more RIAA certified platinum and gold records awarded than any other recording studios) with 3 mic positions for each piano.

    This virtual instrument includes four of the world's finest grand pianos: a Bechstein D-280, Steinway D, Bösendorfer 290, and Yamaha C7. The PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections.

    EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos Gold Edition, which provides only the player's perspective mics and 16-bit samples, is available for users with less powerful systems. A low-cost upgrade path is available for users of the Gold Edition who wish to move up to the Full Edition.

    Additional close mics version engineered by KEN SCOTT
    (Elton John, Supertramp, David Bowie, Beatles)

    Third Party Piano Comparison Demos
    The following comparison demos were created by Thomas Bryla for a forum in Europe. Thomas has no affiliation with EastWest or Quantum Leap. The midi files were NOT created with the EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos. All demos are dry without any additional reverb. The EastWest/Quantum Leap Piano versions were reproduced using the player position samples.

    Comparison Demos
    The following demos are comparisons running the same midi file through various virtual pianos including EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos, Synthogy Ivory, Native Instruments Akoustik Pianos and VSL Bösendorfer. The midi files were NOT created with the EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos, they were created with other sampled piano libraries. No external processing was used. The latest software versions were used for all instruments and the primary factory default programs were selected. All demos are out of the box, except Vienna which does not have reverb, so minimal reverb was added. For the EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos and Synthogy Ivory versions, the player perspective samples were used. For NI Akoustik Pianos and VSL Bösendorfer, the more distant samples were used as there were no player perspective samples. The intention here is show the dynamic, tonal, resonance, coloration and overall image differences between the EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos and other popular alternatives. The EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos are capable of many other sounds, due to the multiple mic samples and interface options. Synthogy Ivory, NI Akoustik, and VSL Bösendorfer also have other options to alter the sound, but these comparison demos use their default programs.

    Multiple Mic Positions

    Each of these pianos were sampled with three different mic positions (see picture) allowing you to mix together any combination of mics "using the interface" for the ultimate in real-time tone and ambiance control. This feature enables users to customize the sound of each piano to their own requirements.

    Please note: while most computers suitable for running professional music software will run one of the mic positions (what you typically get with other piano libraries), you may need a more advanced system to have all options available.

    Reviews & Endorsements

    “These are real acoustic piano sounds. I'm absolutely amazed. EastWest/Quantum Leap has gone the extra mile to provide stunning quality acoustic piano character - the whole collection is superb!”

    — Herbie Hancock

    “This is not just a Virtual Piano collection, it's a masterpiece. It's love at first touch. When I first heard it, I had to play it, and I fell in love. WOW!!”

    — Teddy Riley

    “Quantum Leap Pianos is the best piano software available today. The recording quality and playablity is fantastic and these are the only digital piano sounds they faithfully reproduce the resonances of a well tuned piano.”

    — David Newman

    “The Quantum Leap samples have that rare ability to inspire creative thinking. Always somethings I want out of sounds. To lead me somewhere, to let myself go.”

    — Thomas Newman

    “Having new sounds at my fingertips is always an inspiration and these new PLAY plug-ins have plenty of great sounds to choose from.”

    — James Newton Howard

    “Quantum Leap Pianos is the most detailed and best sounding collection of virtual pianos I have ever used. The PLAY interface gives me a ton of control and flexibility, but it's also really easy to use which allows me to experiment and get the sound I want quickly.”

    — Steve Jablonsky

    “The entire line of Quantum Leap instruments are an essential part of my composing rig. The sounds are impeccable and naturalistically captured while the ease of use and the power of the new PLAY engine makes the instruments top of their field.”

    — Brian Tyler

    Recording Magazine

    In summation, these are without question the most gorgeous sounding sampled pianos I've ever heard. The greatest accomplishment, in my view, is the way the room sound was captured. Even when using only the Player position I found it almost unneccessary to invoke the built-in convolution reverb, which is amazing in and of itself.

    If you're looking for the most authentic sounding sampled grand pianos available at this time, and have a system that can handle it, Quantum Leap Pianos is a must-consider. Just make sure you have the latest vesion - and a computer that is ready for it!

    Sound On Sound Magazine - “Superb”

    Piano sound being such a personal thing, it‘s hard to predict which way players might jump if asked to choose between QL Pianos' instruments. Whatever your preference, it's clear that all four are very good sampled pianos, and since they're sold as a bundle, buyers will be spoiled for choice!

    Editing the 68,000 samples in this library took four people eight months, and I bet pianist John Sawoski‘s fingers are still aching!

    The ultimate test of whether all the effort was worth it comes when a musician sits down to play the instruments, and this musician spent many happy hours playing the ‘fab four’ (to coin a phrase) pianos included in this world-beating collection.

    This collection of four superb instruments raises the bar for sampled grand piano playability without hiking the price too high.

    Keyboard Magazine

    The new meaning of heavyweight. Players agreed that EastWest/Quantum Leap has by far the most detailed and biggest-sounding pianos of the bunch. "The dead center of the Bosendorfer's dynamic range sings out for a long time," noted Fortner, "exactly like the real thing, and the nine extra notes below bottom A [a famous feature of the real thing] are just thunderous." Richard Leiter said, "This sounds like a good recording of a good piano. It makes me want to play late 19th Century classical - if I could!" Aikin added, "This'd be loverly for Chopin, but not the patch you'd load for Bach ... or Little Richard." Trying the Steinway, Aikin said, "I'd sit down and play this for pleasure over the Bosendorfer. It's very lively, with just the right combination of depth and brilliance." He was even happier with the Bechstein: "This makes me want to play Mozart. There's a nice singing quality and melodic projection over chords. I have a sense of comfort here, even more than with the Steinway." The Bechstein was also Fortner's favorite for his R&B-derived playing style: "Lean into it, and it doesn't go quite as far as the Yamaha, but the bell-like harmonics you want for pop come forward. Lean back, and it's brooding and mellow. Gorgeous." EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos stands out because it's the biggest most ambitious sampled piano project ever, with the sound quality to prove it. You'll need a bad-ass computer to play the full-size presets with abandon, but if you have one - wow!
