This virtual instrument showcases the Bechstein 280, a modern 9-foot, German concert grand piano built in 2006. This is a very precise, technical piano that creates a fantastic classical sound, particularly for more demanding works. It can also produce a really unique, big, pop/rock piano sound.

A similar Bechstein has been used by Supertramp and many others. The Supertramp Bechstein piano on "Crime Of The Century" was recorded by legendary Engineer/Producer Ken Scott, and EastWest persuaded Ken to engineer a pop/rock version of this piano for this collection.

EastWest/Quantum Leap spent two years recording, editing, and programming this detailed collection of the world's finest grand pianos, sampled with unprecedented dynamic range, release trails, and seven articulations. The custom designed PLAY-powered interface includes a mixer to control the mics, the lid position, the articulations, concert hall impulse reverb, and many other aspects of the pianos. The PLAY interface includes impulses from the same hall the producers used to record Symphonic Orchestra and Symphonic Choirs so all Quantum Leap Pianos can blend with those collections.

EastWest/Quantum Leap Pianos Gold Edition, which provides only the player's perspective mics and 16-bit samples, was created for users with less powerful systems.
