Absolute Piano is a VST plug-in that enhances a high-quality sound bank with innovative features. It offers standalone capabilities for recording, learning, and playing piano MIDI files, all while exploiting the benefits of the VST plug-in concept.
The creativity of the Absolute Piano cannot be ignored thanks to its sound sculpture filter feature. This is a 3 band powerful shelving filter specifically designed to 'sculpt' the piano timber. This makes it possible to create warm or old piano sounds with ease or even ragtime and classical sounds.
The Absolute Piano also offers a range of specific effects designed only for the piano. Some of the notable effects include a warm, very powerful reverberator that won't add to any ringing resonance, a chorus that can emulate the piano bar style, a peak boost that adds an incredible punch in the piano attack while compressing and limiting at the same time, and a multi-tap echo that can be synced to the tempo. These effects are great for rock and pop styles.
Furthermore, the Absolute Piano comes integrated with a midi file player. This makes it an ideal tool to play your own midi files or the piano rolls available on the web. You can even use it as a stand-alone piano player or to record the midi to a wav file.
Another unique feature of the Absolute Piano is its ability to add pre-recorded hi-quality background sounds. You can add sounds ranging from restaurant, or concert ambience to weird forest, thunder, sea, mountain wind, and snow. Playing with these sounds adds a fun and emotional element to playing your favorite pieces.
The software also comes with a high-quality filter that delivers endless possibilities for synthesis. The low pass, high pass, band pass, and notch, with a constant gain and saturation, resonance, and self-oscillation, and the volume envelope allow users to access the real synthesizers endless possibilities. In conclusion, the Absolute Piano is an exceptional software that delivers a powerful, creative, and dynamic music experience.
