Nord Add Binaural Recording To Their Free Piano Library

Nord have added first ever binaural piano recording to their extensive and completely free piano Library. Nord's Piano Library is a specialised database for both acoustic and electric keyboard instruments that uses a number of unique technologies to recreate the most realistic reproductions of the original instruments.

Containing an eclectic choice of samples from a diverse mix of different instruments, you can now rely on a vast number high quality and professional grade tones to complement your mix. The comprehensive list of instruments included in the Nord Piano Library range from upright and grand pianos to vintage electric pianos, harpsichords and clavinets.

To create the samples for their latest track the 'Royal Grand 3D', Nord have employed a recording technique known as binaural recording, in which two mics are used to simulate a realistic human listening experience.

Using a dummy shaped into the form of an average sized human head, Nord effectively recreate a natural and authentic sound from the perspective of a real person. Equipped with ear shaped microphones in a bid to recreate the human listening experience, the Royal Grand 3D was recorded with the head placed in the natural playing position of a piano player.

Capturing the audio in this way allows the samples to achieve the most natural and nuanced sound. Usually the binaural recording technique is specifically utilised for headphone playback, but the Royal Grand has been suitably engineered by Nord so now it even sounds incredible on regular speakers too.
