Piano Realism Pack™ for S90ES



The Piano Realism Pack for S90ES is a library of sounds designed to enhance the sonic quality and realism of the S90ES pianos. With the Piano Realism Pack you can produce more realistic sounding piano solo recordings of your S90ES, as well as boost your playing enjoyment. 

A real piano:

A real piano's "action" produces subtle sounds that occur between the notes, which are missing from the stock S90ES pianos: sounds from the dampers, the hammer mechanism, and the pedals. These sounds can be subtle (more felt than heard) -- but you can hear them if you listen carefully to a real piano. On a recording of a real piano, the microphone may have been placed close enough to the action mechanism to pick up these sounds. Without them, a digital piano may sound somewhat artificial and two-dimensional at times.

The good news is that the powerful synthesis engine in the S90ES has the ability to generate these sounds. When you install the Piano Realism Pack, new voices are placed into user memory that, when combined with the stock piano voices, replicate the sounds of a piano’s action with strikingly high quality results. With the included Performances and MULTIs you have easy and precise control of the individual components of hammer action, damper felt, damper action, pedal, and key-off string dampening. It’s like adding more microphones to your piano.

Some of the things you can do with this library:

  1. Make the piano sound more realistic and three-dimensional for a recording or live performance.
  2. Add body and a “woody” quality to the piano.
  3. Make a piano solo sound more “close-up” and intimate.
  4. Simulate an old piano.
  5. Isolate and individually control the characteristics of individual piano component parts.

The Piano Realism Pack for S90ES includes over 100 voices, 32 Performances, and 32 MULTIs. The voices represent individual parts of the pianos, which are combined into complete piano simulations through Performances and MULTIs. A complete piano simulation may consist of any of the following:

  1. Key-off effect – sounds of strings being silenced by the dampers
  2. Damper felt effect – sounds of felt on and off of the strings by the dampers
  3. Pedal press and release effect – sounds of a pedal mechanism
  4. Hammer release effect – sounds of hammer action when keys are released
  5. Hammer felt effect – sounds of felt in the hammer action
  6. Piano variations – S700 and CFIII in several tonal colors, plus a stretch-tuned CFIII (P250) MULTI*
*Although the S700-based pianos (e.g. “Natural S”) are stretch-tuned, the CFIII-based pianos (e.g. “Full Grand”) in the S90ES are not. The Piano Realism Pack includes a MULTI that stretch-tunes a CFIII piano to simulate a P250. Stretch tuning is known to contribute to the “singing” quality of concert grand pianos.
