The famous Yamaha CP-70 is no exception to extreme sampling. We sampled this legendary Electric Grand Piano in such detail that it will never need to be sampled again. 94.604 samples to be exact. The Electric Grand Piano is similar to a normal piano, except that the vibration of the strings is converted by electric pickups, similar to that of an Electric Guitar.

We recorded and processed the CP-70 at 24-Bit / 96Khz at our famous British Studio through a large custom NEVE desk.

The Vintage CP-70 contains both standard (Sustains, Staccato, Staccatissimo w/ RR) and a large assortment of prepared articulations (Ex. Plucked Strings, Picked Strings, Muted Strings, Harmonics etc.). All standard sustain samples were recorded with both pedal up and pedal down positions. In addition we also two types of staccatissimo (w/ round robin) for fast playing styles.

We also opened up the Vintage CP-70 and recorded the insides of it, including plucking the tines and gently muting them for different types of sounds. The Vintage CP-70 Piano also contains a large selection of presets, which shows many variations of the instrument. The library contains 8 different types of vintage microphones and 2 different types of world-class reverbs. The microphones includes Neumann 87's, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon's, AKG 414's, Neumann KM 184's and a mixed microphone position, which was made by combining all 24 microphones used in the sessions. We also recorded all samples through two world-class reverbs (Bricasti and TC-Electronics 6000), so you have the best microphones and reverbs right at your finger tips. The Suitcase was recorded with a 100% analogue NEVE Pre-Amp Signal Flow and further enhanced with a physical hardware chain, including Manley Vari Mu Compressor, Original Urei 1176 (Pre-Universal Audio), Original DBX 160, Neve 33609 Compressor.

The CP-70 also includes full control over velocity response, tremolo and tremolo rate controls, resonance and release triggers, pedal volume, analog noise control and full ADSR controls. 8Dio Studio Vintage Series CP-70 is best described as the definitive deep-sampled Electric Grand Piano. Unique, Expressive and with a rich set of new-generation features. It will never need to be sampled again.

    This is nice! I played a CP 70 every night on a gig for about 2 years (30 years ago) and this really takes me back. It was a great instrument, and you guys have really captured it.

    Ace, and great job capturing the beast once and for all, gents! Now we can finally get both jazzy ballad tones and crank the modulation for those those Echo & the Bunnymen lead piano lines, all in a single module 😀 Really love the plucked sustain preset and key/analog noise, too!
