WALKTHROUGH

http://youtube.com/watch?v=6eq_pnbqpsw

This lovely instrument features a beautifully-recorded Yamaha C7 with four microphone perspectives, each offering a unique and lush sound. The library is designed to be a joy to play, use, and edit - it's mixed to perfection and suitable for most any style of composition, from warm and emotional film scores to jazz, classical & romantic music and more.

Why make another piano library? Simply put - we fell in love with this piano & hall, and wanted to make a timeless, eminently playable instrument. Like many composers I have a ton of piano libraries, but now, I only reach for Pearl. It has the ideal 'touch' and creamy tone that inspires me every time I press a key. I could not be happier with how it came out!

The Reviews Are In...

Computer Music / Music Radar: "Pearl Concert Grand sounds lovely and plays well, holding its own against competing pianos costing considerably more. Well played, Impact Soundworks." (4.5/5)

Original Sound Version: "Even taking my high standards for realistic piano samples into account, I have to say that I’m thoroughly impressed by the Pearl Concert Grand. (...) Considering how accurate and realistic Pearl Concert Grand sounds, I think it is easily the next best thing to a studio recording. (...) Pick up a copy of Pearl Concert Grand and you’ll likely never need to buy another piano sample library."

The Audio Spotlight: "The first preset that is loaded up by default sounds very generally usable, meaning it doesn’t sound too thick, not too thin, not too muddy, not too bright, not too intimate, not too formal. Just very playable and instantly usable in many different contexts. (...) For me this piano library is a very welcomed addition because it makes my job easier when I don’t have to fool around with the EQ constantly anymore." (4.4/5)

Film and Game Composers: "The main marketing phrase is Pearl is true joy to play”, but trust me, it is not just marketing phrase, they are right! I was enjoying the simple act of playing it so much I almost forgot to test all of its features." (4.5/5)
