The A-Pian Grand piano is and old french Gaveau piano. Gaveau was a French piano manufacturer.

The company was established in 1847 in Paris and used to be one of the three largest piano makers in France (after Érard and Pleyel).

This particular piano was build in 1960 and is referred to as a "crapaud" ("Petite Grand" in english), which means that it's a little smaller than a "quart de queue" (baby grand).

It has a very particular sound, very bright and full of inharmonicity in the bass due to the short length of the strings.

This library was our first attempt at finding new ways of sampling a piano. We tried to reduce the size and still keeping the most important parts.

A-PIAN comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.1.6 or later), It is included for free, so you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use the product.
