Grand Piano Virtual Instrument
Put the unmistakably rich, warm tone of this Berlin-made classic at your fingertips
Brandenburg Piano is an audiophile-grade SampleTank Custom Shop instrument collection that puts you in control of the rich and warm traditional sound of one of the most iconic German-made pianos of all time. It includes over 1GB of content with more than 500 stereo samples that combine to create an unforgettable playing experience.
Brandenburg Piano recreates a particularly well-kept 1958 Bechstein 6'8" that our team of engineers found in San Francisco, California. Made of luxurious woods, it has a physical heft that can be perceived in its distinctly resonant tone that’s worthy of the monolithic cultural landmarks it draws its name from - Berlin's Brandenburg Gate and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto.
To recreate this piano’s sound faithfully, our team spent weeks capturing each detail with a matched pair of Neumann TLM-170R condenser microphones running into top-quality studio preamps. Each note has been meticulously sampled with at least 6 distinct velocities for an incredibly realistic playing experience. All the beautiful nuances and subtleties have been retained. And, for playability’s sake, we also omitted a few notes where necessary to ensure smooth key transitions and a uniform tonality across the keyboard.
Monumental is the word that will come to mind when you form your first chords with Brandenburg Piano. Its gloriously rich tone makes it a natural choice for when you want to perform and record emotionally deep classical and lush jazz or even add a moody warmth to pop or hip-hop tracks.
The piano has a rare "musicality" to it where it now somehow embodies all of the great music played on it over the last half-century. It's rare to find a piano with such artistic mojo. This very special instrument is a must-have for anyone performing or recording serious grand piano tracks. It also includes a model of the actual recorded piano’s soundboard (Piano 5) for SampleTank's Acoustic Resonance effect.
