Four Exceptional Yamaha Pianos in One Exclusive Package

Ruby Grand is a dynamic combination of four distinguished Yamaha Grand Pianos combined into one amazing and affordable price. This gives musicians of all skill levels more freedom to create beautiful music and unmatched artistry all their own.

Ruby Grand

Boasting the famous Yamaha C7 sound, Ruby Grand has graced some of the most famous concert stages, international competitions and prestigious music events throughout the world. Its mellow sustain, beautiful tones, and unique timbre are perfect for pop, jazz or rock.

Ivory C

A Yamaha C7 recording in concert hall, it offers a rich, life performance sound that can be enjoyed alone or paired well with larger instrumentals or layered melodies.

Magnificent CFX

Handcrafted by Yamaha, the new CFX concert grand has the power to sing over a full symphony orchestra while maintaining relaxed ease when playing solo passages. It also boosts dynamic performance for better tonal balance.

Mini Ruby

Smaller than a traditional C7, the Yamaha C3 features the same rich sound, but gives you a unique and inspiring feeling than a concert grand to help set it apart from its line.

HD Velocity Layer 3 with HDR (High Dynamic Range) Technology

The dynamic of a piano is the most decisive aspects of its sound quality. Around 10 years ago, Sound Magic had already applied a True Piano Dynamic system which can represent piano dynamic in the most efficient way. And in years, we keep improving the performance. A True Piano Dynamic means the piano will have different dynamics from low notes to high notes; usually, high notes will have more dynamic range. Now, our True Piano dynamic system enables every note to have its unique dynamic range, and it can be fully controlled by knobs.

Ruby Grand is powered by Hybrid Modeling technology and HD Velocity Layer 3 with HDR (High Dynamic Range) technology (support up to 65,536 velocity layers) providing a natural boost to expressive power that can be felt with every strike of the keys. Along with the new Neo Piano engine, which achieves 400 times more variations than a traditional sample engine, every note played is unique, creates vivid sound representation, and strikes a rich, accurate tone even with small movement. In essence, it’s an instrument with a musical soul instead of a machine feel. What is more, in this new version we allow you to experience this in a system which only supports 127 velocity layers by applying HDR. This makes this technology can be used without any cost upgrading your MIDI system.

Specially Designed Staccato Mode

When you play a strong staccato on the piano, you will notice that the sound in its release phase is different from the usual sound. This difference adds extra variety to the final sound of the piano – it contributes to the vividness or expressiveness of the piano sound.

To accurately reproduce this staccato sound, we added a specially sampled staccato instrument that could load nad use in your music project.

Add Several Resonances to the Beautiful Sound

Resonances play an important role in a piano’s sound. It adds extra beauty to the overall sound. Reality dictates that every grand piano’s sizeable soundboard reflects sound that resonates in conjunction with the wooden body of the instrument itself. Indeed, it is this continuous process that makes every note played sound so unique.

Ultimately, in order to simulate this behavior, Sound Magic captured multi-angled IRs (Impulse Responses) from the soundboard, and then used modelling technology to convert those IRs into Multi-Dimensional Resonance algorithms. The result? An amazingly true-to-life concert hall sound readily available at anyone’s fingertips!

Sympathetic Resonance happens when Harmonics are heard in keys related to keys that are struck. It is an interaction between different strings and adds extra color to every note’s sound. It makes them sound unique so that the audience can enjoy listening.

Sustain Resonance and String Resonance can be heard when sustain pedals are pressed. Although they are subtle sometimes, as a part of Piano resonance, Our Neo Piano Engine has the ability to represent different resonances in the right way, and provide controls on their amount and behavior.

Meticulous Damper Controls

Neo Piano Engine also modelled the behavior of the damper, which controls when the sound should stop. With damper controls, musicians can choose whether it is a newly built piano, or a piano that’s 20 years old. Also, it is interesting that users can try to change the material of the damper from soft to hard; they can experience the differences in sound.


Pedals Modelling

Every pianist knows the importance of pedaling to the piano sound. Pedal behavior is rather complex both mechanic- and sound-wise. Sound Magic’s latest Neo Piano Engine can represent the pedal behaviors accurately including the features below: Half Pedaling: For acoustic pianos, it is possible to press down the sustain pedal only partially such that the dampers just touch the strings very slightly. This technique for the advanced pianist is called half pedaling and allows a fine variation of the sound. Repedaling happens when you press sustain pedal again within a very short time after releasing the pedal. The string will continue to sustain in this case. A piano usually has three pedals, from left to right: the soft pedal (or una corda), the sostenuto pedal, and the sustaining pedal (or damper pedal). Neo Piano Engine carefully modelled the pedal behavior and additionally supported the 4th pedal on Fazioli pianos.

Timbre Control

Timbre Control Helps to Shape a Unique Sound

Everyone tends to pursuit a variation of the piano sound that sounds unique. Neo Piano Engine provides several controls to change the timbre color of the sound. Users have the ability to change the lid position and can choose between low frequency and high frequency. With the modelling feature of the engine, musicians can even adjust the harmonic partial of the sound to get a unique sound.

Shape Space with Professional Quality Reverb and Microphone Perspectives

Another important aspect of piano sound is the space. In order to max out the possibility in space feeling, Neo Piano Engine not only has a professional reverb unit, but also provides microphone perspective controls, which enables users to mix different perspectives by moving the sliders.

User-Friendly, Helpful AI Tools

It costs quite some time for musicians to fit new virtual pianos with their existing keyboard. Neo Piano Engine has an AI Tool that is designed to solve it. With this tool, users can check whether their keyboard works under the best condition and get suggestions on how to get the best performance in a very short time. This will save a lot of time.
