A piano sound sampling taken from one Yamaha Full Concert Grand Piano "CFIIIS". "AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling"
The piano sound is a sampling from the Yamaha Full Concert Grand Piano "CFIIIS", which has won high plaudits at the world's most famous concert halls and music competitions. The very top piano was selected, and an experienced tuner adjusted it to top condition. Yamaha emphasizes the natural sounds that should emanate from pianos. Sampling is carefully performed over a long period, from the sound start until fadeout, to reproduce a natural sound and attenuation that feels nothing like an electronic piano. In addition, they also focus on the change in timbre due to the strength or weakness of the key strike that is so characteristic of pianos. Sound sampling covered more than 10 stages of key strike strength for each keyboard. Uses "AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling", sounds that most closely express the piano characteristics, obtained through rigorous recording. The Yamaha development team spent a lot of time together with pianists in thorough pursuit of the optimum touch and timbre combination, resulting in achievement of natural sound changes that sound like a person is actually playing a grand piano, no matter how the keyboard is played.
