This video demonstrates the 8Dio 1990 Studio Grand Piano (Yamaha C7). This music software instrument (VST, AU, AAX) contains over 48.000 sample. We recorded both pedal up/down on sustains, round-robin based staccatissimo and staccato notes. In addition we recorded everything through a custom NEVE desk at 96Khz and you have a wealth of microphone options, including Neumann u87, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon, Akg 414 and Neumann KM 184. We also recorded through two of the best hardware reverbs in the world.
In this video we demonstrate the notable difference between sustains, staccato and staccatissimo. It is essential to have separated short-note recordings for faster playing techniques and the video shows the difference between the articulations and how to use them.
