Is the Piano patch still coming to the BBC SO, or has this changed? I know it was talked about and I believe it was more of a when than an if at one point, but I am really hoping this wasn't dropped.
I'm also more interested in seeing more from the BBC venture than the Abbey Road venture.
C'mon BBC and SFA, give us what we need! :)
I don't recall them saying this; I think a bunch of people WANTED this. Me included.
I got the orchestral grand on piano day, and it works well. There's also a ton over on pianobook for free. Also orchestraltools has a free one in the "factory" section.
Hi @Aaron Moon and others on this thread. We understand that the addition of a Piano was alluded to in previous content online prior to 2020. However, due to the current restrictions in the UK, Maida Vale studios has been closed. This is also unfortunately coupled with the fact that Maida Vale is slowly being decommissioned, so we can no longer guarantee that a recording of a piano in the same place can take place.
That said, we would still love to add more additional content to BBC SO and are looking to get back into the studios as soon as it is safe to do so, and will update the community as and when any additional content will become available.
No, it's definitely been thrown around in videos. Christian pretty much said what Angus said, but it was a while ago and we didn't know how long Covid was gonna shut us down for at the time.
I hope they still get around to it, if not, that's fine too. :)
I would whole heartedly agree. I’ve just purchased the Core version of the BBC SO. Having a Steinway Grand piano included seems a bit of an omission to this library, but it would be great if this was included as part of the next update. I would also like the library to be a bit more flexible in terms of being able to purchase individual solo/lead string instruments that come with the pro version, or the ability to purchase other specific instruments, without necessarily requiring the more extensive pro mic positions.
