Bechstein Digital - C. Bechstein Digital Grand

By 4 Download Jun 29, 2018
The concept behind the C. Bechstein Digital Grand represents a completely new and modern approach to the DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) oriented digital grand piano. All existing solutions and concepts on the market have been completely put to the test and questioned before even the first note was recorded. This sounds a bit crazy? Well, maybe it is. But it was well worth the effort …

A different approach to sampling a grand piano.
In contrast to the common approach recording a grand piano for sampling, the C. Bechstein team preferred a rather minimalistic method. Instead of recording dozens of microphone signals, which usually are mixed together at the postproduction stage much later in the process, they decided to focus on recording from just 3 classic listening positions. These were captured with only 5 microphones (24 bit/ 192 kHZ). Additional stereo signal capturing the direct and close “aura” of the grand piano can also be accessed by the software instrument fully in phase.

The sonic performance of the software instrument speaks for itself:
playing with high polyphony throughout all registers, even in pianissimo each note remains clearly defined within all arrangements. In particular, the M/S signal shines in detail, making the individual notes tangible throughout the entire dynamic range.

Bechstein spent several weeks at the acclaimed Teldex Recording studio in Berlin, which continues the great tradition and history of Telefunken and later Teldec Classics and their recording teams. Since its modernization in 2003, the Teldex Studio in Berlin is one of the largest private recording studios in the world. The famous recording hall, the state-of-the-art equipment – including a unique collection of vintage microphones – and the experience of the Grammy-awarded producers and engineers ensure first class productions, no matter what style of music.

Under supervision of 3 time Grammy winner recording engineer Tobias Lehmann, each and every note of the D 282 piano was recorded in numerous variations, articulations and under perfect acoustic conditions – also utilising the M/S microphone technique, the sound engineers’ and sound designers’ method of choice for capturing acoustic instruments for the first time.

Due to the different recording techniques, the software instrument excels in all kinds of musical styles. Classic arrangers will appreciate the fine, extremely nuanced recording quality of the samples. Jazz and pop musicians relish in the innovative sound tools of the Digital Grand.
