ANAHEIM, CA, USA: cutting-edge audio technologies developer The Best Computer Music And Acoustic Technology Inc (aka Sound Magic) is proud to announce availability of Fazioli Rose— its latest hybrid virtual instrument for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit), featuring four extraordinary Fazioli Grand Pianos combined into an amazing and amazingly affordably-priced package, purposefully positioned to give musicians of all skill levels more freedom to create beautiful music and unmatched artistry all of their own — as of Mar 18th, 2019.
As a dynamic combination of four first-rate Fazioli grand pianos of varying vintage, Fazioli Rose gives musicians of all skill levels more freedom to create beautiful music and unmatched artistry all of their own. After all, all pianos sound distinctly different, as is also the case, clearly, with this cutting edge hybrid virtual instrument’s featured four: Fazioli “Brunei” is a limited-edition custom design of F308, this model was handcrafted in Italy and is one of the world’s most expensive and renowned concert grants. Famous for its expressive, dynamic, and clear highs that sing with clarity, this versatile sound fits into all types of genres. Fazioli F308 really set itself apart from standard manufacturers, the Fazioli F308 features 97 keys, a 4th pedal, and expressive sound all in one dynamic package with sweet, singing highs, immense power, and a rich, distinct tone. F308 Basslord is another F308 but with special mic positioning that closer to the bass strings, the charming, yet powerful bass hits the sweet singing highs and makes you feel as if you’re sitting in front of a genuine 10” grand. Fazioli F275 is the latest model 275 from Fazioli, it’s inherited all the classic sounds you love with enhanced clarity on highs. This makes it more suitable for today’s most popular music genres, such as pop, rock and jazz.
Get this, though: thanks to the trailblazing technology that The Best Computer Music And Acoustic Technology Inc incorporates into its virtual instruments, Fazioli Rose is, in essence, an instrument with a musical soul rather than a machine-like feel — an admirable attribute that sets it apart from an abundance of solely sample-based virtual instruments out there that it could conceivably be pitched against. As such, textually making an appearance on a GUI (Graphical User Interface) that is as easy on the eye as it is to use — albeit actions always speak louder than words, the new Neo Piano engine powering Fazioli Rose really represents the pinnacle of sound sampling since it lets users effectively express more than 1.6-million sounds on a single note — numerically speaking, this achieves 400 times more variations than a ‘traditional’ sample engine! Every note played is unique, creating vivid sound representation by striking a rich, accurate tone— even with minimal movement.
Musically, then, through using hybrid modelling technology, The Best Computer Music And Acoustic Technology Inc has succeeded in creating a unique experience — exploited to the full with Fazioli Rose — that allows its users to reap the benefits of authentic sampled sounds combined with the playability of a modelled piano, providing for more freedom of expression and potential possibilities to create their own unique sound. Central to this, that new Neo Piano engine elevates proceedings, purportedly by being the industry’s first large-scale application of AI (artificial intelligence) in its software developing phase. Put it this way: while it is common knowledge that recording, editing, processing, and organizing such huge sample data pools can collectively take teams of expert engineers years to complete, conversely AI can conceivably reduce this titanic task to a matter of hours, meaning musicians get their hands on better products much more quickly while also benefitting from financially reduced rates.
Duly delivering yet another breakthrough, the new Neo Piano engine powering Fazioli Rose generates Multi-Dimensional Resonance. Reality dictates that every grand piano’s sizeable soundboard reflects sound that resonates in conjunction with the wooden body of the instrument itself. Indeed, it is this continuous process that makes every note played sound so unique. Ultimately, in order to simulate this behavior, The Best Computer Music And Acoustic Technology Inc captured multi-angled IRs (Impulse Responses) from the soundboard, then used modelling technology to convert those IRs into Multi-Dimensional Resonance algorithms. The result? An amazingly true to life concert hall sound readily available at anyone’s fingertips! Furthermore, that beautifully-implemented Fazioli Rose GUI gives users unmitigated control over 40 piano attributes, including an ability to lift the lid, tweak Tone and Harmonics, alter Damping, change Key Dynamics, and adjust velocity response. Ultimately, users can even apply a Style — sets the piano in question’s musical style, be it classical, jazz, rock, or soft, and changes the internal parametric EQ accordingly via a simple Amount control — or sympathetic Resonance to their sound, and adjust the mix by changing microphone Perspective.
Pushing onwards and upwards, further features of note include a DFD (Direct From Disk)/RAM (Random Access Memory) system — enables users to allocate resources to ensure the best possible performance for any given project; Tuning System — allows users to select a Scala Tuning File from over 10,000 tunings; selectable Reverb — replete with several self-explanatory settings; and adjustable physical piano Noises — Pedal, Strings, and Hammer Off par excellence. Ending on a high note, A.I. TOOLS take care of checking the response of any Fazioli Rose user’s keyboard playing and pedal usage automatically, almost instantly locating and applying an appropriate velocity curve to suit at all times.
