After two years of recording, editing, and programming, EastWest/Quantum Leap proudly present the most detailed collection of the world's finest grand pianos ever recorded in one of the 'temples of sound', EastWest Studios with 3 mic positions for each piano. This virtual instrument includes four of the world's finest grand pianos: a Bechstein D-280, Steinway D, Bösendorfer 290, and Yamaha C7. The Play interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so the pianos can blend with those collections.

About the Bechstein 280
The Bechstein 280 is a modern 9-foot, German concert grand piano, built in 2006. Thisis a very precise, technical piano that creates a fantastic classical sound, particularly for more demanding works. It can also produce a really unique, big, pop/rock piano sound. A similar Bechstein has been used by Supertramp and many others. The Supertramp Bechstein piano on “Crime Of The Century” was recorded by legendary Engineer/Producer Ken Scott, and we persuaded Ken to engineer a pop/rock version of this piano for this collection. Producer Doug Rogers purchased the Bechstein in 2006, and when EastWest Studios re-opens to the public in 2008, this will be the EastWest Studio 1 concert grand.

About the Bösendorfer 290
A 98-key, 9 foot and 6 inch, Grand Imperial Concert Grand piano made in Austria in 2000. This particular piano was played by a Russian concert pianist for 4 years giving it a very warm tone with a huge dynamic range. It stuck out in a room full of world class pianos. It is a very romantic piano and sounds more like a Steinway than a factory tuned Bösendorfer. Producer Nick Phoenix bought the Bösendorfer in 2006, and the sound of this piano coupled with the purchase of EastWest Studios sparked the idea to create this virtual instrument collection.

About the Steinway D
An 88-key, 9-foot, American Concert Grand. We went through 12 Steinway D's before finding this gem. This is probably the most balanced universal piano in the collection. The dynamic range is huge, from a whisper to thunder.

About the Yamaha C7
This instrument is the pop/rock piano from EastWest Studio 2. This particular C7 has been used on more Gold and Platinum records than any other piano in existence. It is a great bright piano, but attention was also paid to the soft dynamics, which really separates this effort.
