Today, French music company Arturia has announced a slew of new products including a new hardware synth, new audio interfaces, a new VST, and a new MIDI controller. They announced the products during a live stream event, which you can watch below.
Augmented GRAND PIANO
A beautifully recorded Steinway Grand, fused with modern synthesis, dynamic expression, and flexible modulation for modern composers & producers.
Piano timbres unheard
Starting with beautifully captured recordings of an ‘80s Steinway Grand, embellished with unusual techniques like bowing, ping pong balls, and tape-processing, and fused with synthesis for fresh, exciting, outside-the-box piano sounds.
Theatrical concert grand richness, platinum cinematic textures, evolving metallic atmospheres, and barely-recognizable hybrid effects; whatever style, Augmented GRAND PIANO can fit the bill.
Users can animate tracks with timbres that flow between familiar & far-out, acoustic & synthetic, and pure & transformed with the powerful Morph control. Move between sound layers and make broad changes to multiple aspects of a sound with one control.
Customize and interact with Augmented GRAND PIANO’s sound intuitively with its array of straightforward macro controls, affecting various parameters and ensuring that expressive dynamics, articulation, and timbral control is only ever a click away.
Construct your sound
Every aspect of Augmented GRAND PIANO’s sound can be customized with 2 distinct layers, each including 2 sound sources, for weaving compound textures with whatever combination of samples and synthesis that users need.
Deep sound design
Augmented GRAND PIANO is a shortcut to perfect piano sounds, but its advanced panel lets users go deeper when a project calls for it. Add complex modulation, keep it moving with smart arpeggiation, and fine-tune sound layers in one
