The Montclarion Hall Grand Piano is a classic Steinway 1926 parlor grand that lives in one of our favorite recording halls. We captured in wide stereo from three distinct microphone distances (internal, external/mid and far/hall) to allow custom and surround mixing and provide different ambient flavorings. It has a crisp, solid tone ideal for classical composing, yet works equally well for soul, jazz, rock and pop. But this 7+ GB library goes well beyond a simple classical grand piano library. It also includes a wide selection of extended “prepared piano” and very useful creative FX articulations, such as percussive pounds, slams, string scrapes, steel guitar slides, mallet and pick glisses, sweeps, plucks and much more.
Originally released in 2010, the Montclarion Hall Piano was recorded in a steep A-framed long hall in the hills above Oakland, CA. It’s a place that truly resonates with us, in the same space that Mars, Venus, Mercury and the Apocalypse Percussion Ensemble were captured in, along with a whole host of former Tonehammer epic percussion and choral libraries. It has lush, rich, clear, well-defined and balanced natural acoustic reflections. In our ears, something about this magical room combined perfectly with this piano, creating the right holistic balance. The true instrument here is the piano and the hall together as one.
Montclarion Hall Grand Piano是一台经典的Steinway 1926客厅，位于我们最喜欢的录音室之一。我们从三个不同的麦克风距离(内部，外部/中间/远端和大厅)以宽广的立体声拍摄，以实现自定义和环绕声混合，并提供不同的环境风味。它具有清脆，坚实的音调，非常适合古典作曲，但同样适合灵魂，爵士，摇滚和流行音乐。但是，这个超过7 GB的库远远超出了简单的古典三角钢琴库。它还包括多种扩展的“准备好的钢琴”和非常有用的FX清晰发音，例如敲击磅，大满贯，弦刮擦，钢吉他滑轨，槌和拨片，扫弦，弹拨等等。
最初于2010年发行的Montclarion Hall Piano是在加利福尼亚州奥克兰山丘上陡峭的A型长大厅中录制的。在与火星，金星，水星和天启打击乐合奏团同处一处的空间中，这是一个真正引起我们共鸣的地方，还有一整批前Tonehammer史诗打击乐和合唱库。它具有郁郁葱葱，丰富，清晰，轮廓分明的自然声反射。在我们的耳朵中，这间神奇的房间与这架钢琴完美地融合在一起，形成了适当的整体平衡。这里真正的乐器是钢琴和大厅在一起。
