Pearl Concert Grand

Our flagship grand piano instrument for KONTAKT PLAYER features a beautifully-recorded Yamaha C7 with four microphone perspectives, each offering a unique and lush sound. Pearl is a true joy to play, edited and mixed to perfection and suitable for most any style of composition - classical pieces, cinematic works, pop, jazz, blues, and more. Pearl makes an excellent addition to any sample collection. If you're like us, you'll find yourself reaching for it every time.

A powerful yet unencumbered user interface provides very easy control over all aspects of the sound, such as mic mixing, channel EQ, tuning, and velocity response. By simply adjusting the mic mix alone, you can achieve drastically different timbres.

We know that as soon as you load Pearl and beginning playing, you will have the same reaction we did when we played this piano for the first time.

As you can hear, the gorgeous sound of Pearl is extremely versatile. Depending on which microphones you use, it can provide a grand classical tone, a soft jazz timbre, emotional and cinematic warmth, or anything in between.

The Close mics offer a full-body sound and serve as an excellent basis for any mix. The mono Pedal mic provides extra resonance and bass, and is particularly nice for adding extra warmth in the lower registers. The Stage mics add a sense of space and air while still being very present, and the Hall position feature the lush concert hall, further expanding a sense of space and depth.

The interface of Pearl is every bit as elegant and beautiful as the piano itself. On the main page (pictured below), each microphone can be effortlessly mixed, with per-channel EQ, stereo width, compression, and optional routing to different KONTAKT outputs. The settings page offers fine control over "under-the-hood" controls such as volume envelope, velocity response, tuning (and microtuning), and noise volume.

With an assortment of presets included, customizing Pearl for your DAW or MIDI controller couldn't be easier!

Below are required & recommended system specs for Pearl. Please note that the library does include light patches which substantially reduce memory usage - RAM requirements below are for FULL patches.
