It is a natural choice for the semi-professional musician who wants to adjust unique physical parameters such as unison with microtuning hammer hardness soundboard and string length. It also lets you position up to 5 microphones around the instrument and to choose from a selection of different microphone brands. The possibility to shape the sound through physical parameters is an extraordinary feature that cannot be found in any other piano software. With just a few mouse clicks you can achieve things that would require hours or even weeks by piano technicians to adapt on real acoustic pianos. Some things can hardly be done in the real world such as changing the string length from a mini grand of 1m/3.3ft to an imaginary giant grand of 10m/33ft. You can even modify the mechanical properties of the soundboard. New exciting possibilities open up as you explore the parameters and discover sounds that you have never heard or thought of before.
