Native Instruments The Giant KONTAKT DVDR
You've never seen or heard a piano like this. THE GIANT captures the sound of the world's biggest
upright piano to deliver something even bigger: An intense, dynamic playing experience with a sound
that’s nothing short of inspiring. From urban pop, film score pathos, soft piano ballads, driving
rock riffs or dim jazzy timbres, the untreated sound of THE GIANT instantly satisfies – straight
out of the box. Add detailed control options and a dark, cinematic version of the instrument, and
THE GIANT’s distinctiveness is matched only by its versatility. Meet your new go-to piano for
virtually any style.
Dark Alter Ego
THE GIANT is two instruments in one. A dark, cinematic alter ego, effectively a separate instrument
alongside the main piano, offers an irresistible playground for sound design and dramatic effects.
Create your own mix of unconventional, individually-sampled sound sources – overtones, resonances,
plucked strings, release sounds and special techniques such as piano hits, kicks, sweeps or
scratches – all directly and instantly playable from the interface, delivering professional
results with a fast workflow. These avant-garde sounds are also enhanced with detailed control
options and a dedicated FX convolution engine with over 100 special piano effect impulse responses.
Size matters - the original piano
The original instrument is the Klavins Piano Model 370i. The 'i' stands for integrated - this huge
upright piano is built into the wall of a room, effectively securing the soundboard. Over three
meters high and weighing over two tons, the Klavins Piano Model 370i provides a soundboard that's
roughly twice the size of a typical 9' concert grand piano soundboard.
