Quantum Leap Pianos Bechstein Silver download.
For the original library, the four sampled pianos each contain two types of instruments:
Full and Lite. The Lite patches use less memory than the Full patches; they achieve their
smaller size in RAM by not being chromatically sampled. That is, while the Full patches
load into memory samples for all 88 notes on the keyboard, the Lite patches load only
every third note; the sounds of the remaining notes are achieved by “stretching” the closest
sampled note up or down a semitone. Because the difference in timbre between two
notes a half step apart is small, this approach has very little effect on the audio output.
The Silver Edition, designed to use less of a computer’s resources, and designed small
to be downloadable over the Internet, provides only the Lite patches.
Each of the instruments is available in two varieties. The standard instruments (those
without “DYN” in the name) use a straight mapping between MIDI velocity and loudness.
Those instruments with “DYN” in the name have their upper velocities pushed even a
little higher than standard. This modification makes the “DYN” instruments better suited
to keyboards with weighted keys, allowing for better control over the dynamics.
The Bechstein 280 is a modern 9-foot, German concert grand piano, built in 2006. This
is a very precise, technical piano that creates a fantastic classical sound, particularly for
more demanding works. It can also produce a really unique, big, pop/rock piano sound.
A similar Bechstein has been used by Supertramp and many others.
Producer Doug Rogers purchased the Bechstein in 2006, and this is the EastWest Studio
1 concert grand.
