The rich singing tone of the Malmsjö GVI sample is combined with the ubiquitous sound of the Steinway "B" sample from Art Vista Virtual Grand Piano 3 to various degrees - from a Malmsjö sound with a Steinway edge, to a Steinway sound with a touch of Malmsjö, never producing exactly a Malmsjö nor a Steinway sound. The combination of the two pianos with such diametrically different sounds allows for piano sounds ranging from intimate to flamboyant.
The suitability of the Art Vista Malmsjö has been proven in numerous Hollywood movies, and the sound of the Art Vista Grand Piano 3 grand piano can be heard on many pop and rock albums. SUPERGRAND, with a combination of both offers a widened range of useablility as well as a unique piano sound.
The pianos that were sampled are a 1894 Malmsjö 6ft parlor grand and a 1960 Steinway "B" (Hamburg). For more information about the instruments behind the piano sounds used in SUPERGRAND, please visit the product page for MALMSJÖ GVI, and ART VISTA VIRTUAL GRAND PIANO 3.
