Q Up Arts 25th anniversary edition.The Legendary Holy Grail has been found again. The Kawai GS50 6'9" Grand Piano (serial #1465052) was taken apart. After detailed analysis of every component, samples were then recorded at multiple velocities enabling you to play delicate classical, soft mellow jazz to the hardest of rock cutting through the rudest stack of amps. Q Up Arts was the first developer to offer a sampled grand with all the realism and emotional expressivity of a genuine grand piano. The first version slaved 3 E-Mu Emulator IVs together to realize the design. We invented a proprietary approach to sampling called Virtual Model Sampling (VMS) which puts controllable piano components: note on/offs, pedal and hammer sounds plus sympathetic un-dampened strings into your hands. The Search for The ultimate piano is over, but for you, a new musical quest is just beginning. Produced by Douglas Morton, and Michael Scott. Requires Kontakt 5.7 or later full version. Not compatible with the Kontakt free Player.

4 of 5 The Holy Grail Piano - we meet at last! February 7, 2019
Reviewer: Craig Richards from Melbourne, Australia  
I remember the glowing reviews this received when it was released years ago, so was interested to see it had been updated for Kontakt. In the current era of multi-gigabyte sampled pianos, the modest memory specs of the Holy Grail seem at odds with the quality and dynamics it delivers.

It's bright, resonant, and more 'real' than many of the current crop of sampled pianos on the market - a testament not only to the choice of piano, but also to the talent and skill of the developers. Glad to have it in my kit.
