How much memory does the Digital Grand allocate?
The memory requirement for the entire library is around 26 GB (gigabyte). The samples were reduced to this space requirement by means of very efficient data compression – lossless. If you want to compare: this size is about 80 GB for uncompressed libraries.
What does M/S mean?
M/S stands for center / side. The advantage of the center-side microphone is the possibility to control the stereo image very convincingly afterwards.
In M/S recording, two microphone capsules are used – as is usual with stereo recording. These are offset at a 90° angle to each other, so that one capsule records an exact “mono image”, while the other capsule records level changes to the side. Subsequently, both signals are reassembled using a special phase mixing process.
In the Digital Grand, you can use the WIDTH control to control the signal steplessly from a true mono signal to an “oversized” stereo image.
Does the Digital Grand support half pedal positions?
Yes, MIDI sustain foot pedals that output continuous controller information (CC#64) are supported. But you can also use simple hold pedals, too, which will only convert “On” and “Off”.
In the Digital Grand, the bar on the right immediately indicates the control range your pedal is reporting to the software.
What is a Neo-Bechstein?
The “Neo-Bechstein Grand Piano” has made history. At the end of the 1920s, one of the world’s first grand pianos with electronically generated sound was created in collaboration with Nernst and Siemens, Nobel Prize winners. With this instrument, a development was pioneered that was demanded and accepted by the market decades later.
