The story

This is the best sample I’ve made to date. A Yamaha S6 grand piano, sampled with an exquisite array of microphones. I really never thought I’d give this away, and it pains me to do so, but here we are. This piano is a lite version of the samples I recorded – a single stereo pair of Royers 121 ribbons, two dynamic layers, three round robins. Played with a soft-medium dynamic, Gentle Grand is warm and rich. I later decided to mangle the samples and create a padded layer, that undulates and accompanies the main piano wonderfully. I’m incredibly proud of this instrument, and I hope you love it as much as I do.

  • Stunning Grand Piano

    this piano is up there with Nihls Frahms Grand - it's not a felt piano but has amazing character and presence/ It's gentle, wistful, and deep but very very playable and may just become my favorite "go-to" piano - well done!

    This is a very inspiring gentle piano, sucks you right in! And also that very useful pad option. Using in my current game project. Thanks Dan!

  • Just beautiful

    This is exactly, what I would expect from a Piano library. Bought many of them, but found it in a free Pianobook package. I like it a lot. Thank you for providing it!!!
