K-Sounds presents Epic Grand, a sample library for the Yamaha Montage featuring stereo samples of a Yamaha C7.

The samples were recorded and edited at 176.4kHz, 24 / 32 bits, then converted to Montage-compatible specifications for the final product. A close mic position was used, creating an up-front, studio sound. The stereo image is wide, centered, and mono-compatible. Every note has a generous, natural-sounding sustain.

Two bank sizes are included, allowing Montage users to effectively manage the keyboard's flash memory. The 504Mb bank offers eight sampled dynamic levels for realistic touch response across the keyboard. Additional independent elements such as damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noise samples bring the piano to life. Thirty performances cater to a wide variety of musical needs. The Super Knob enhances every performance, whether increasing the piano's distance from the listener, fading between layers, providing dynamic control, or adding effects.

The 125Mb bank includes four sampled dynamic levels plus damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noises. Its thirty performances offer the same sonic variety and real-time control as the larger bank.

Instead of relying on effects to simulate damper resonance, Epic Grand uses real sampled resonance to create lush sustains. As with a real piano, the resonance responds to the sustain pedal in real time, even if notes have already been played. Because the resonance is presented as an independent component of the instrument, its volume can be adjusted, and it can be disabled entirely.
