THE GIANT captures the sound of the world's biggest upright piano to deliver something even bigger: An intense, dynamic playing experience with a sound that’s nothing short of inspiring.
The Giant is two instruments in one: The 'Day' version with the main piano and the 'Night' version, a dark, cinematic alter ego, effectively a separate instrument alongside the main piano, offering an irresistible playground for sound design and dramatic effects.
From urban pop, film score pathos, soft piano ballads, driving rock riffs or dim jazzy timbres, the untreated sound of THE GIANT instantly satisfies – straight out of the box. Add detailed control options and a dark, cinematic version of the instrument, and THE GIANT’s distinctiveness is matched only by its versatility. Meet your new go-to piano for virtually any style.
Galaxy Pianos welcome 2010 with an all new engine, a completely redesigned user interface and, besides the well known Galaxy II Grand Piano Collection, a new grand piano legend: Galaxy Vintage D.
Galaxy Instruments’ ‚Vintage D’ virtual grand piano is based on samples of a vintage Steinway D, a true legend of its class. This Steinway D was built in 1920 in Hamburg in the German factory of Steinway & Sons. It is located at Bauer Studios in Germany, where some of the world’s greatest pianists have recorded legendary albums, among them:
Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, Richie Beirach, Aziza Mustafa Zadeh, Abdullah Ibrahim, Monty Alexander, Wolfgang Dauner, Carla Bley, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Aki Takase, and many others.
Richie Beirach called it „the best piano in the world“.
The Galaxy II Grand Piano Collection contains three grand pianos: the Vienna Grand (a powerful Bösendorfer Imperial), the 1929 German Baby Grand (a Vintage Blüthner baby grand), and the 5 star awarded Galaxy Steinway in stereo and 5.1 surround.
The upcoming new version Galaxy II K4 is based on the new Kontakt 4 engine by Native Instruments, presenting new features, better performance and a completely redesigned direct access user interface. Version 4 offers true half pedaling, true repedaling and dynamically playable pedal, damper and string noises when using a continuous sustain pedal.
Additional resonance release and noise samples have been added and all the 30GB of samples of Galaxy II have been revised and enhanced.
Galaxy Piano’s Version 4 takes the Galaxy II Grand Piano Collection to an new level.
