Universal Akoustik Piano

Native Instruments today released Akoustik Piano 1.1.1, an update to its piano software-instrument that runs natively on Intel-based Macs as a Universal Binary. Akoustik Piano enables users to play samples from the Steinway D, Bechstein D 280, and Boesendorfer 290 Imperial grand pianos, as well as the SteinGraeber 130 vintage upright piano. The software is designed to cover the entire range of piano sounds and styles, transfusing the sonic characteristics and subtle tonal nuances of all four instruments. Native Instruments note that it used the latest recording technology with a specially developed microphone setup to record samples from all four pianos. "The result is a uniquely warm, transparent and flexible sound that delivers the same distinctive character of each individual piano in exacting detail and can still be adjusted to meet specific needs." Akoustik Piano 1.1.1 is priced at $340, and requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
