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.
Below are the results:
Different piano models to suit all genres/styles.
Recorded by a world-class pianist. Prepared by a world-class piano tech.
Inspiring and visually complex graphical interface.
"Having worked with Steinway pianos all my life, I’m really impressed with the sound Auddict have achieved. It’s certainly the best digital piano sound I’ve ever heard."
(Piano technician. Prepared pianos for Lang Lang, Martha Argerich, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Evgeny Kissin and more)
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.Show results
Three mic positions for anything from a close, dry tone to a huge ambient concert sound. Includes a beautiful sounding, specially sampled una-corda mode.
Control even the resonance of the pedal, sound of the hammer mechanics and timbre/tone of the instrument.
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.
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.
The beautiful interface allows for amazing visual representation of what you play.
Screen record your performances and upload them online.
This instrument was recorded and brought to life by Dorian Marko on his own Steinway D concert grand piano, who, as a professional virtuoso pianist, knows exactly how a piano should sound and feel. Rest assured, this sounds like the real thing.

"Not a loop player or multi-sample player; it's both and more."
"Taking a different tack to other percussion libraries, PercX's ambitious hybrid approach succeeds on almost every level."
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Adjust the dynamic response of your piano with an interactive velocity curve.
