8Dio 1985 Passionate Grand Piano is an ultra deep-sampled piano library – featuring over 66.000 samples, up to 10 velocity layers, 5 round-robin, a wealth of flexible articulations and all across 6 microphone positions. The microphones were literally surrounding the entire piano, so you can create exactly the sound you want. Whether it is getting close to the strings or listening from the players position. Whether its the darker tones underneath the piano or more ambient perspectives using room microphones. We used the finest Neumann microphones (U87, Um57) and a wealth of other high-end studio microphones.

Equally important is the elegant playability. The 1985 Passionate Piano plays fluently across all velocities – with a beautiful, warm and wide sound of a mature grand. You will not notice these are samples, but rather a real instrument at your finger tips. Full of life, personality, natural resonance and harmonics.
