8Dio Legacy 1928 Steinway Scoring Piano KONTAKT

Welcome to 8DIO Legacy Piano series – a collection of deep-sampled world-class pianos. Legacy Piano series marks the next evolution in piano sampling and first virtual piano series to ever have round robin (repetition samples) on both sustains and staccato, which means you get a more varied, fluent and expressive piano.

We are launching our Legacy series with the release of one of the most precious and sought after pianos in the history of pianos, namely a specific series of ivory covered Steinway grand that were produced in Germany in 1928. This particular series and era is known to be one of the best and the building quality still stands unmatched – even the strings are still original from 1928. It is the perfect piano for soundtrack composers, songwriters and people looking for an advanced emotional and resonant piano. In addition the instrument was recorded with two sets of microphones (close/internal) and (ambient/player), so users can adjust the sound to their liking ranging from recordings inside the piano to a natural player perspective.

We also added a variety of controls (ex. pedal volume, release volume, noise reduction, EQ etc) and a visual velocity editor, so you can fully sculpt the piano to your liking. The piano also includes a great selection of convolution reverbs and convolution effects – and a bonus selection of morphing patches (ex. Hang Drum, Pipe Harps, Bells, Guitar) that can morphed directly with the piano.

Full Retail version of Kontakt 4.2 or later required


1928 LEGACY PIANO contains a variety of patches customized for your need and
system specs. We have memory-conservative versions that are no more then 200MB
and large versions taking 2-3GB of RAM. The main difference is how deeply the
programs are sampled. The larger versions contains 1-2 fully loaded microphone
position and our unique round robin (aka repetition samples). The round robin is x 6
repetitions pr. velocity layer of staccato short notes and x 3 repetitions pr. velocity
layer for the sustained samples.
The ideal user configuration is our high-memory patch, which includes all the samples
in the library, including both microphone positions and fully loaded round robin. We
highly recommend a 64-bit +8GB RAM for using this patch, since its more resource
intensive then the rest. Legacy is programmed very specifically to conserve system
resources, so evne with 400-500 voices playing you should be flying on a decent
Quad-Core system.


1928 LEGACY PIANO is incredibly easy
to use, yet incredibly flexible. You can
control a massive subset of elements
directly from your keyboard,
including tonal/pitch control, sample
trigger control and all the effects that
are associated to the samples. All
available right on your keyboard.
GUITAR: The pitch-bender on your
keyboard controls the bit-resolution of
the sample. The more you turn it - the
more grainy and bit-crashed your
sound will become. This is an effective
tool for sculpting some edge into your
HANG DRUM: The beloved modwheel
controls a low-pass filter. The default
is set to no filter, however the second
you start adjusting your modwheel
you will note the sound becomes softer
and more muffled based on the level of filter. This allows you to sculpt the sample to the given
"softness” level of your composition and makes the sample fit better in the mix. Works super well
with the bit-resolution on the pitchbender btw.

METAL BOWL: The low keyranges on your keyboard controls type of guitar you are using from
electric clean, electric distorted to acoustic. You will note that all keys (C-B) contains basic chords,
so you can freely combine the different guitars, since they are playing the same rhythm. You can
adjust the volume level of each guitar from the frontpage. Each guitar contains the 12 most
fundamental chords used in song writing today. You can generate an end-chord if you press hard
on the keyboard. Which allows you to create a more elegant ending to each of your chords.
PIPEHARP: The upper mid-keys (C4-D4#) allows you to control the four signature rhythms. All
chords were played in the four most common rhythms used in song writing.
BELL: The high keyranges on your keyboard provides you real-time control of all the effects,
including LOFI, Rotator, Delay, Convolution Reverb (with +40 custom convolutions), Reverb,
PROPANIUM: The upper mid-keys (C4-D4#) allows you to control the four signature rhythms. All
chords were played in the four most common rhythms used in song writing.
