IK Releases Pianoverse Hamburg Grand S274 & new MAX bund

Postby Peter_IK » Thu Mar 07, 2024 5:35 pm


Hamburg Grand S274 is the latest addition to IK’s groundbreaking Pianoverse virtual instrument, which combines the world’s finest concert-grade pianos with inspiring, cinematic effects. For subscribers, Hamburg Grand S274 is included with the Pianoverse update released today through the IK Product Manager. It's also available for purchase separately and comes included in the new Pianoverse MAX.

Pianoverse lets users explore a breathtaking sonic range, from the most true-to-life acoustic piano experience to the wildest atmospheric and interactive creative textures, all in a single plug-in. And all with incredible ease of use and an inspiring workflow.

Hamburg Grand S274 is based on a robot-assisted deep multisampling of a 9’ Steinway & Sons Hamburg D-274 from 1958, a concert grand piano manufactured by Steinway & Sons of Germany. Each Hamburg D-274 is handcrafted and the entire process, from selecting the wood to voicing the strings, takes over a year. This dedication to quality has attracted the world’s greatest players throughout the years including Lang Lang, Emanuel Ax, Hélène Grimaud, Leif Ove Andsnes, and Sergei Rachmaninoff, the legendary Russian composer and pianist.

For the Hamburg Grand S274, IK traveled to Officine Meccaniche studios in Milan where a gorgeous 1958 Steinway & Sons Hamburg D-274 lives in perfect harmony with its ambient surroundings. IK captured the magic using the same preamps as other Pianoverse instruments with no EQ or compression. A pair of DPA 4011 as close mics and a pair of Coles 4038 mics in a Blumlein configuration took full advantage of the room’s acoustics. The results are spectacular, from the singing voice of the piano to the more prominent impact of its pedals.

New Pianoverse MAX

With the release of Hamburg Grand S274, IK is pleased to introduce Pianoverse MAX, a bundle offering users the option to own all 6 available pianos for one low price, including Hamburg Grand S274 plus two additional pianos scheduled for future release. Special upgrade pricing is also available for Pianoverse instrument owners and current yearly subscribers.
