We have been working in collaboration with Lance Herring on this project.
The AcademicGrand is a 1963 Steinway D concert grand which has seen countless recitals and concerts over the years where it served as the University of Arkansas' primary concert instrument. The piano has been an inspiration to hundreds of students and visitors, and with being well-maintained and cared for, it's a wonderful instrument with a unique history and classic American Steinway sound.

Default interface Mixing settings
Default interface
This is the default interface of the plugin. We adjusted all of the parameters the best possible way. If you want to adjust something, simply click on settings.
Mixing settings
On this library, the Mixing settings are only a control over the volume and pan.
General settings Midi settings
General settings
In this panel, you can change most of the aspects of the library to make it sound just like you want.
You can adjust:
  • The release Volume: the sound produced when you release a key if a note was going on.
  • The Key Noises: the sound produced when you release a key and no corresponding sustain was played.
  • The Pedal Noise: the sound produced when you press or release the pedal, it adds a lot to the realism.
  • The Tone: a simple way to make the piano sound brighter or darker.
  • The sostenuto CC, also called the middle pedal. You can sustain selected notes, while other notes remain unaffected.
  • The polyphony. If you lower the buffer or simply want to be light on CPU, then increase or lower this value.
  • The Reverb. We use a convolution reverb and you can adjust the dry and wet parts separately.
Midi settings
In the midi panel, you have access to all of the midi controls to help you adjust the library to your controller or playing style:
  • The MIDI remapper allows you to assign any input velocity to any output velocity.
  • The MIDI curve controls the midi remapper and will give it a concave or convex shape thus changing a "MIDI sensitivity".
  • The Velocity Threshold is simply the minimum velocity that you will have to play to hear the piano, it is present on a real piano.
  • The Dynamics curve changes the volume curve of the library.
  • The Sensitivity will set the minimum volume for velocity 1 and give you access to all the dynamics that you want.
Sample player
AcademicGrand comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 2 (requires v2.6.5 or later).
We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.7 or later) and PC (windows 7 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / AU / AAX ) and in 32 and 64 bits. You can find more info about it here. If you want to use our products in osx 10.5 or 10.6 or windows XP, please contact us, you will need UVI Workstation v2.5.8 and earlier versions of the UFS files, keep in mind that this older version requires the use of an iLok dongle and that some of our most recent products will not be compatible.
