Pianoverse offers the perfect piano sound for any genre, with superior results in every situation. IK’s team spent months sourcing treasured piano instruments from the most prestigious manufacturers including Yamaha, Steinway, Bösendorfer, Fazioli and more.
Each instrument was brought to one of Italy’s finest studios, hand-tuned and prepared, then sampled using multiple microphone setups and IK’s unique custom-built robotic system that allowed a degree of velocity measurement, sampling precision and repeatability that simply cannot be matched with traditional sampling workflows.
Realism is one of the most important things we wanted to translate into the pianos of Pianoverse. Each piano has its own personality, in that it behaves in its own way, and this is particularly true for the dynamic response of the instrument.
A key has its own dynamic curve – the way it responds to varying velocity – and this curve is different for each key.
Only with a high-resolution, high-consistency sampling robot was possible to capture a detailed representation of the entire dynamics of the piano without flattening it or simplifying it too much, which is what necessarily happens with traditional sampling.
The current pianos include a Yamaha CFIII Concert Grand, a Yamaha U5 Professional Upright, a Bösendorfer 280 Vienna Concert and a Steinway & Sons New York D-274 with more coming soon on a recurring release schedule, featuring models based on a Bösendorfer 200, a Steinway & Sons Hamburg D-274, a Fazioli F278 and a Koch & Korselt Upright piano.
