All samples have been remixed and edited using today's technology. We are also using a new feature that we have developed during the last few years. We call it "True Resonance".
TR is pedal down samples that only contains the resonance from the undamped strings without containing the actual note that's being played.
Buy using TR, we can make things like real time pedaling and half pedaling sounding way more natural then before. These samples are new.
Also, there's a lot of features that are scriptbased in Black, that doesn't come with the Black Grand. You also will get the Kontakt Engine with Black.
So, it's really a new piano, you couldn't use the old samples from Black Grand with this.
Rather then offering some kind of upgrade path, we have chosen to put this at a price that will be appealing to all users.
