audiolatry has announced the release of Grand Piano XXL, a free ROMpler piano instrument plugin for Windows (VST/VST3).
This virtual instrument features a sampled Yamaha C5 6’7″ Grand Piano captured in 48kHz 24bit audio quality with 16 velocity layers. There’s also a slimmed-down version that has only 4 velocity layers – hence the lower size (only 319 MB compared to 1.19 GB size on disk).
Grand Piano XXL has attack & release controls, reverb module, and gain. In the middle, there’s a “Tremolo” section with LFO rate & depth for pitch, expression and pan, plus filter cutoff with selectable lowpass/highpass. The “Key” knob is the gain for piano keys release.
