An Ebony Concert Grand (extreme) and a Braunschweig Upright (Pro) by Imperfect Samples valued at approx. 375 Euros
Imperfect Samples specialises in imperfect sample libraries with performance sounds, recorded intelligently. Geared for the professional producer, imperfect sample libraries are useful for conveying a feeling of reality into a track.
The human brain is sensitive to the differences between an organic recording vs. a quantized sequenced track. This is a common problem with sequenced acoustic music. Many perfect commercial sample libraries can often sound midi-like, due to their perfect performance.
When an imperfect sample library, is sequenced, the result is a hyper-realistic organic recording. For example, listen to this sequenced demonstration:
The Ebony Concert Grand (Extreme) contains up to 127 velocity layers, 5 mic perspectives, imperfectly and perfectly sampled instruments, true staccato, true crotchet, picked strings, and FX, giving this library over 70,000 unique samples. Provided via super-fast download, this instrument is essentially 10 high-resolution grand pianos in one.
Containing over 160GB of data with 24-bit audio fidelity, the raw versatility and dynamics of this piano library has to be heard to be believed.
The life-like Braunschweig Upright (Pro) is the largest single upright piano library in the world. The Braunschweig Upright (Pro) contains 14 velocity layers of one microphone perspective, and 11 layers of another. Totalling over 15GB of data, this upright piano library not only sounds real, it has a versatility not before seen in upright piano sample libraries.
