September 16,2006 : for immediate release.

Vstdev.com has announced the immediate release of the Absolute Bosendorfer Piano.

The Absolute Bosendorfer Piano VSTi is a new step in the Piano simulation. Behind
its simple and addictive interface, it can emulate many pianos and features new
creative and never seen possibilities.

The Absolute Bosendorfer Piano is apowerful plug-in that combines both a very high
quality multi-sampled original sound bank and real time processing to offer a wide
range of new piano sounds in a compact and productive interface. It can reproduce a
very large palette of sounds and timbres from ragtime piano to classical grand
pianos but also it is a research tool with unlimited numbers of new possibilities.

The Absolute Bosendorfer Piano can be a Piano to WAV converter, with its stand alone
version and its ability to read midi files. You can add your own ones, and re-create
the sound of the piano that you like, and save the result in a WAV file that can be
burned on CD.

The Absolute Bosendorfer Piano is a fun tool, because you can truly emulate all the
mechanical parts of the piano, play with the high quality effects or even add
background noises like concert crowd, mountain blizzard, or garden birds while you
play. You\'ll spend hours to re-discover your favorite pieces with this VSTi

The key features of the Absolute Bosendorfer Piano :
1. Simulation : it is not yet another piano sound bank in a plug-in shell, but it
uses real time processing to analyze the score and affect the correct hammer noises,
pedal noises and all the harmonics generated by what is called the sympathetic
resonance. Each note corresponds to up to 5 samples played simultaneously! As a
result, despite its small size, the B200 sounds amazing!
2. Creativity : the B200 features a sound sculpture filter, that is in fact a 3
bands powerful shelving filter specially designed to \'sculpt\' the piano at specific
key frequencies. You can create warm or dead piano, ragtime or classical sound with
3. Effects : yes, in every plug-in you have a set of effects, but, the B200 features
specific ones, designed only for this piano. The reverberator is warm, very powerful
and will not add any ringing resonance like most reverberators does. The chorus will
greatly emulate the piano bar style, and the peak boost will add an incredible punch
in the piano attack, while compressing and limiting at the same time! Great for rock
and pop styles...the multi-tap echo can sync to the tempo as usual but combined with
the others, you can create killing fx.
4. Midifiles : this piano is also the ideal tool to play your own midi files, or the
piano rolls you can find on the web. With its integrated midi file player, you can
use it as a stand alone piano player, to learn or just record the midi to a wav
5. Background : the Absolute piano is a real simulator, and you can add pre-recorded
hi-quality background sounds, from restaurant, or concert ambience to weird forest,
thunder, sea, mountain wind, snow! Fun to play it is a must for adding some emotions
when you play, try it, you\'ll re-discover your favorite pieces!
6. Synthesis : with its very high quality filter, low pass, high pass, band pass,
and notch, with a constant gain and saturation, resonance and self oscillation, and
also the volume envelope, you have access to the real synthesizers endless
possibilities. It is even possible to emulate the sound of ... a violin!
7. Optimization and More : to add more power and more control, I\'ve added a peak led
in every key element of the signal path, in order to better analyze and avoid
internal distortion issues. Also this piano is VERY optimized. It takes only 160 Mb
in memory and 250 Mb on the hard drive. It was necessary to load all the piano
samples in memory to stay under the 50% of CPU use on an Athlon 1.8 Giga in the
worse case! With 24 notes of polyphony, and 5 sounds played together to re-create in
real time all the piano characteristics, it is up to 120 sounds, played, transposed
with a 6 points high quality interpolation! It works perfectly with 5ms of latency
on an EMU Proteus soundcard for example!
8. Stand alone and VST compatible version in the same install.
As you see, the idea was to create an universal piano with loads of fun and
possibilities in a single, compact and optimized instrument. Don\'t forget the price,
89 EUR for all this power, check the demo! If you buy it now, you can download it
now from our hi-speed server!
