VILabs Ravenscroft 275 for UVI Expansion
At VI Labs we believe that some instruments truly can inspire and take your creativity to new levels. Ravenscroft 275 is one of these rare instruments. This one-of-a-kind concert grand has been recreated using nearly 17,000 samples and 4 discrete microphones, controlled from an easy to use interface. Our goal was to emulate all aspects of the 275’s detailed voice using the latest sampling technology and let this amazing piano speak with clarity. The result: a virtual piano like no other.
Reproducing the tone and playability of a concert grand like the 275 Titanium is no easy task. Precise playing velocities plus complex harmonic interactions and details are carefully sampled and then controlled by a powerful script and engine. Control is similar to a modeled virtual piano but entirely sample-based. Touch response is consistent no matter the controller used. All while keeping your resource usage minimal and offering fast load times.
It’s one piano that works for all styles. And gorgeous detail is abundant. Rich clear hammer attacks, unique Muted Strikes, staccato Release Trails, real sampled Una Corda pedal, and sampled Resonance all lead to a level of realism previously unobtainable in a virtual piano. If the usual piano tones have worn out their welcome and it’s time for something fresh, the Ravenscroft 275 is here. This is truly a pianist’s virtual piano.
