The seven mic positions are designed to cover the whole sound-scape, and chord and octave sampling minimize “sample layering” in tracks.
The multiple mic positions let you mix between the perspectives; Decca tree sides and mid, flanks, room, woodwind spots, close ribbons and close LDCs, with the flexibility aimed at replicating a real scoring session.
Here are the official audio demos:
- No Legato (allows polyphonic playing)
- Legato – normal slurred legato (piano and forte dynamic layers crossfade-able)
- Oct Legato – True octave legato
- Fst Legato – Fast legato specially for fast playing
- Stutter (a quick stuttered grace note before the main sustain)

- Staccato – Short notes, with up to 5RR per dynamic layer (three layers)
