MHC Unveils Pianos
MHC has released Pianos 1.0, a VST plug-in for the PC. Pianos includes hundreds of piano and piano related waveforms/samples and processes these using a set of synthesizer functions, including a powerful and unique effects section, which has 133 different effect modes. All knobs can be MIDI controlled. This is the third plug-in from MHC in the series of hybrid synthesizers which combine a set of samples/waveforms with synthesizer functions and an effect section.
The plug-in features hundreds of piano recordings and layers which are combined to create a collection of pianos sounds which we’re very satisfied with. Many of the presets follow our tradition of sounding “ambient”, but this plug-in offers a variety of piano sounds. There are traditional acoustic pianos, grand pianos, electric pianos and synth pianos of many kinds.
The piano plug-in includes 1024 piano presets and the user may edit the synthesizer- and effect parameters to create his or her own piano sounds.
â€¢ 1024 presets, which are available in three soundpacks (included when purchasing the plug-in). A soundpack is an expansion which adds new piano waveforms and a set of presets
â€¢ Hundreds of piano waveforms/samples
â€¢ Supports MIDI controllers
â€¢ Crossfading and layered effects include distortion, filter banks, a resonator, flanger, sub oscillation, amp modulation, pitch shift etc.
â€¢ All knobs can be mapped to MIDI controllers with a simple “learn” function.
â€¢ Ensemble with adjustable amount and mix. Stereo delays.
â€¢ Full polyphony. Only your CPU sets the limit or you may set a fixed voice limit.
MHC’s Pianos 1.0 costs $99 and includes three soundpacks. Pianos is available as a VST plugin for Windows and soon as an Audio Unit for Mac OS X. More information on Pianos 1.0.
