e-Instruments are known for their meticulously sample based Kontakt instruments. The new Session Keys Grand S and Grand Y are no exception with forensically sampled Steinway D4 (S) and Yamaha CFIIIS (Y) grand pianos.

Both instruments are sampled with both lid open - a more traditional concert format and lid off - with closer mics for a more studio experience. e-Instruments are also arch Kontakt scripters and have created plenty of tonal variation with their Pentamorph tonal control - which also opens up the instruments to more sound design and prepared pianos type use plus the Animator for clever, dynamic, auto piano part creation and Smart Chord for single finger chord creation with modifier keys, making these more than just  sampled piano instruments.

 

I was particularly impressed with the dynamics and sustain of both of these pianos, very playable and extremely musical.

Product specialist Russ Hughes who you may also know from Pro-Tools-Expert.com gave us a look and listen to both.
