  • Metapiano. A 60MB modeled grand piano that sounds like a 30GB one.

    Sampleson launched MetaPiano, the first Spectral Modeled Grand Piano, built upon real sound captures from a Japanese Concert Grand Piano and meticulously rebuilt by math algorithms.



    For its creation they captured the real instrument in a peaceful studio in Patagonia. The mountains and solitary landscape gave the perfect scenario to meticulously record notes, resonances, and mechanical noises, to be used for feeding the Sampleson’s Spectral Engine 2.0.

    Why is Sampleson doing spectral modeling? “Because it’s a technique that produces highly accurate results. It provides a much closer sound representation of the real instrument (than other modeling techniques) to the brain’s perception because it’s based on the real waveforms and not in mathematical estimations.” they say.

    The result: the most realistic modeled Grand Piano nowadays. It features full decay for every note (you’ll find up to 1:30 minutes of decay in the lowest notes, without loops). No velocity switching. No noise. And a small footprint.

    With these characteristics, a sampled Grand Piano plugin should weigh at least 30 Gb. Sampleson did it in only 60 Mb. And it’s on intro price ($59) at https://sampleson.com/metapiano.html
