Musicians were asked to identify the real piano(s) from a set of five recordings including one real and four sample libraries.

Results showed that almost the same number of musicians that guessed the real concert grand recording guessed that our virtual "Dorian Marko Piano" was in fact a real piano recording.

Sounds like a live piano

When we showed musicians recordings of a real Steinway D concert grand piano and various virtual pianos, they could not tell the difference between the real Steinway recording and the Dorian Marko virtual piano.

Control even the resonance of the pedal, sound of the hammer mechanics and timbre/tone of the instrument.

Songwriters / Pop / Jazz / Rock

A clean tone which can be as direct, dry and punchy as you want. Adjust the mechanical sound and tone of the instrument to your heart’s desire.

Composers

The“attic” model is a beautiful warm and fat sound for an emotional cinematic tone. The “+ stardust” adds another layer of complex fx to warp the sound into new dimensions.

Features list

Inspiring Graphical Interface

A truly inspiring and graphically rich visual display which can inspire and even be recorded for streaming or uploading your performances/recordings online.

Three Mic Positions

Play anything from the closest driest piano sound appropriate for pop/rock/jazz to a hugely ambient and distant concerto sounding concert grand for classical pianists.

Four Piano Models

Four different piano modes: “classical” (for a traditional concert sound), “stage” (for rock, pop, jazz), “attic” (a soft, haunting sound which works in cinematic productions) and “stardust” (highly experimental sonic effects).

Fourteen Velocity Layers

We’ve never spent this much time sampling an instrument; months of sampling and re-sampling until it was perfect. We made sure to capture every single detail from this very special Steinway Model D concert grand piano.

Una Corda Mode

We specially and separately sampled the una corda pedal, you get the real thing. The una corda sound on this piano is very prominent and very special.

Lifelike Sustain Pedal Resonance

The sustain pedal does not merely hold notes down when depressed. It actually causes the same resonance changes as a real instrument. Vast amounts of time were spent re-creating this complex behaviour.

Sampled by a Professional Pianist

This instrument was recorded and brought to life by Dorian Marko, who, as a professional virtuoso pianist, knows exactly how a piano should sound and feel. Rest assured, this sounds like the real thing.

Chromatically Sampled

Rest assured that every single note was sampled, chromatically No shortcuts were taken and no program/software trickery was used. Not only did we sample the piano fully and meticulously, but we did it multiple times until we decided it was perfect.

21 GB Sample Content

Huge amounts of sample content. We use our own compression algorithm to reduce the size of the samples, so you’re getting 23GB of samples taking up just 12GB of space.

Instrument Noises

You can even adjust the mechanical sounds of the instruments. Alter the sound of the pedal going up/down, the hammers strikes, hammer releases and background noise.

Velocity Curve

Adjust the dynamic response of your piano with an interactive velocity curve.
