After developing the best possible script for THE OESER, we will continue working on our already great script. We are turning the script into THE 7TH virtual piano instrument and adjust it to match our Yamaha’s well balanced playability and sound. Of course we will record the sympathetic resonance of each string. Furthermore, we will add extra features to our virtual piano THE 7TH for the Native Instruments platform.
Classical pianists often use the piano more extensive compared to the average pianist. For example to name a specific feature: half damper. Classical pianists use the sustain pedal to balance the dampers on the strings. So you have the high notes more damped while maintaining tone on the lower end whilst also maintaining more resonance. So, pedal owners who have control values instead of switches will be able to control this feature on our sampled virtual piano instrument “THE 7TH”. Also, we’ll add the sostenuto pedal functionality and record all keys with the una corda pedal pressed as well. This una corda sound will be added to the main THE 7TH so you can control it with a separate pedal, like the sustain and sostenuto. But if you do not own a 3 pedal setup, you can still use this unique and intimate sound, as we will release it as a separate instrument. Last but not least, we will add the option to “catch” the release tail and resonance of the piano, after the strings are dampened, with your sustain pedal. Every piano “sings” a little when the pianist tries to quiet her down. This trace of sound would naturally end up in re-pedalling the sustain.
We are keeping the user interface of THE 7TH virtual piano instrument exactly the same as THE OESER’s. As we believe in simplicity of controls when playing a virtual piano. Therefor you can adjust your sound with one of our three microphone positions and enhance your experience with the pedal noise and key mechanics. Of course you are able to adjust the playability of the piano through velocity response. Finally you are able to adjust the tone even more with your preferred lid position.
