Reviews & Endorsements
“I’ve spent years looking for an expressive, dynamic, and realistic virtual piano, and nothing comes close to Soundiron’s Emotional Piano. To date, I’ve used it on probably 30 film scores, over 100 television episodes, and several rock and jazz albums I’ve produced. It has an elusive cinematic quality difficult to describe in words. I have an exquisite Yamaha DC3 grand piano at my studio, which records beautifully, but I frequently find myself employing Emotional Piano instead because it always sounds stunning and it’s so easy to use."
“Emotional Piano! It's incredible. There are so many great patches in the "FX" folder in that library.”
"SoundIron’s Emotional Piano is really great-sounding, and extremely flexible and easily molded into any sonic landscape. I’ve been using it on my current work for 20/20."
"Soundiron has given these particular ivories a gentle tickle creating a boutique instrument that oozes character. Emotional Piano is a hugely expressive instrument..."
