K-Sounds Intros ‘Incredibly Playable’ Epic Grand For Yamaha Motif XF / MOXF & Motif XS

K-Sounds_Epic_Grand_XFK-Sounds presents Epic Grand for the Yamaha Motif XF / MOXF and Motif XS.

Epic Grand features detailed stereo samples of a Japanese grand piano and is, according to the developers, it is ‘incredibly playable’.

The samples were recorded and edited at 176.4kHz, 24 / 32 bits, then converted to Motif-compatible specifications for the final product. A close mic position was used, creating an up-front, studio sound. The stereo image is wide, centered, and mono-compatible. Every note has a generous, natural-sounding sustain.

Two bank sizes are included:

  • The 505Mb bank offers eight sampled dynamic levels for realistic dynamic response across the keyboard. Additional independent elements such as damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noise samples bring the piano to life.
  • The 126Mb bank includes four sampled dynamic layers plus damper resonance, release resonance, and hammer noises.

Epic Grand’s damper resonance samples are true recordings of the sympathetic string resonance heard when notes are played with the damper pedal down. This resonance is presented as an independent component of the instrument, allowing users to adjust its volume or disable it altogether.

  1. Some pianists consider it blasphemous, but workstation synths have really high piano merits now. I urge everyone to play the real thing a bit. You can make more use of the non-acoustic options when you have a sense of the feel of Real. I was even able to program a decent live rock piano in an older synth a while back, so tools like Ivory push the bar out of sight. Divide the number of players by the subset who can maintain a real piano at home and you get a much larger group who are as happy as hell to have accurate alternatives. As with software synth recreations, I encourage you to pick one and dive in. I’ve played both and the gains leave the drawbacks in the dust.
