The aim of this project was to essentially deliver an entire hybrid piano studio. Great care was taken to capture the sound of the CP-70 in the most complete and detailed way possible, resulting in a core library of over 10,000 samples. 5 discrete channels were captured, including the electric output and instrument acoustics miked in L/R and M/S configurations. The raw electric signal of the CP-70 was captured with a Class A direct box with Vovox cable into a Prism converter for the utmost clarity and definition. For the acoustic section, a stereo pair of custom Bruel and Kjaer mics sit in a conventional L/R configuration while a Neumann U67 and Royer ribbon mic form the M/S signal.
For each of those preparations, EGP delivers 5 channels of audio: electric, L/R and M/S signals. Level control and mutes are available per mic and mic group. Go from acoustic mono to a full 5-channel mix, easily adjusting the width and balance to fit your mix perfectly. Independent effect chains and amplitude dynamics for both the acoustic and electric signals give you unmatched sound shaping control. Add a touch of reverb to the acoustic section, some overdrive, chorus and a longer attack on the electric signal, EQ both to taste.
The user interface was carefully designed to make editing these signals as simple as possible, with acoustic sources at the top of the UI and electric at the bottom. They can be fully controlled across 3 pages, Main, FX and Settings. EGP comes with over 100 expertly designed presets which lets you easily display its fantastic sounds and detail. Easily dial in your sound or lose hours exploring the possibilities.
Incredible sound quality and an elegant UI are just the beginning. Under the hood of EGP you’ll find UVI’s sophisticated Engine XT™. With over 10 years of R+D behind it, Engine XT now sports an advanced, realtime compression system providing up to 7x faster load times and an average 70% reduction in file size. This translates to a dramatic improvement in workflow and delivers EGPs massive 20GB sample footprint in a mere 4.7GB package.
A creative tool capable of everything from classic piano sounds to shimmering ambiences, EGP redefines the electric grand. Whether you’re a discerning performer, producer, composer or sound designer, EGP is a powerful tool for your sonic arsenal.
