Description

Freddie Mercury's Fazioli Mercury is a grand piano sample library for Kontakt Player featuring a Fazioli F228 recorded at Metropolis Studios in London. One year in the making, crafting it piece by piece in order to make it perfect in every possible way. Fazioli pianos pursuit perfection. They’re sophistically delicate but with a very rich low-end and a lot of body resonance. Mercury was recorded by Grammy Award winning Paul B. Norris with 5 mic positions from ultra-close to room sound for maximum versatility. It sounds warm and very emotional. Perfect for intimate low-key tracks, but it’s also very punchy and aggressive on high velocities. A combination that you don’t find usually on piano libraries. It has been captured with so much detail and depth that you can make it sound in a million different ways and still sound natural, but it will always retain the character. Mercury can be a big monster library or light-weighted since one microphone only uses ~300MB of RAM. With realism in mind and all the possible features that we could think of including soft pedalling, una corda, sostenuto, sympathetic resonance, microtuning. Mercury will fit in every situation perfectly, and it will be an honour to know that it has become your go-to piano library.

Best Piano Vst?

ATM I'm enjoying ImpactSoundworks Pearl Grand, Wavesfactory Mercury Grand and Bechstein Grand Digital. Three quite different (Yamaha, Fazioli, Bechstein) but wonderful ones.

Best Piano Vst?

I have Bechstein 280 from Eastwest and it sounds great. I also have the Bosendofer 290 by EW also The Yam-C7 and Steinway D. EW did a great job on . Im going to get Keyscape by Spectrasonics. I don't know what Eric Persing did but it sounds like no other and realistic like no...

10 of the best virtual pianos right now

Sad to see that Wavesfactory Mercury is not on this list. It's definitely the number 1 piano for me, particularly because it can be both warm and intimate and also dance-worthy at high velocities.
