Steinway B Grand Piano (Recorded at Power Station New England-Waterford, Connecticut)
The Steinway B is one of the most recorded pianos in history and is widely considered the ideal studio piano. Its unique balance of size and power make it an extremely versatile instrument for all styles of music. This particular instrument was hand selected and prepared with the kind cooperation of Steinway and Sons at their factory in Astoria New York. Before recording, all piano regulation, voicing and tuning was done on-site by a Steinway concert technician before painstakingly sampled by Synthogy's expert team. The recording sessions took place in the classic tuned live room of Power Station NE, an acoustic replica of the famed Power Station New York.
Bosendorfer 225 Grand Piano (Recorded at Firehouse Recording Studios, Pasadena, California)

Slightly longer than most studio grands at 7' 4', and with four additional low keys, this instrument has appeared on numerous Grammy-winning and Grammy-nominated recordings. The sessions were engineered by Tony Shepperd in the state-of-the-art Studio A at Firehouse Recording Studios in Pasadena, its venerated sound captured in this historic piano room.
