Piano One - Hybrid modeling Yamaha piano
Piano One, the free hybrid modeling Yamaha Concert Grand.

The Sound of Piano One comes from the Yamaha C7 concert grand, a true workhorse in the professional piano world, appearing on famous concert stages, in international competitions and in prestigious music events throughout the world.

By utilizing the Sound Magic Hybrid Modeling Engine, Piano One offers both the Realistic Sound of Sampling and the Playability of Modeling. Hybrid Modeling provides an instantaneous feeling - no delay - and a truer and richer sound than canbe created with either sampling or modeling alone. What's more, Piano One utilizes only 150MB, which is quite a small footprint, making Piano One usable even on older PCs. There is no waiting time when loading and the CPU usage is so small that it's virtually unnoticeable.

Like other great pianos from Sound Magic. Piano One is equipped with a full featured Add-on system which enables you to enhance Piano One with over 20 different add-ons from the Sound Magic Online Add-on Store. Add-ons add different special features to Piano One. They can make your life a little easier, letting you quickly and precisely modify your sound, your style and much, much more. These add-ons are all precision designed with a particular purpose or for a particular style of music.It's also possible to choose a completely different piano sound when you simply feel you need a new color or a new style.
  • Sound Magic Hybrid Modeling Technology
  • 32 Polyphony Limited
  • Add-on System (needs internet connection)
  • Actual modeling and soft pedal samples vividly present the sound of three
    kinds of pedals.
  • Built-in professional Reverb Engine simulates resonances with environment
    and soundboard, adding extra realism to the sound.
  • Faster load times. Smaller hard drive footprint, less memory and less CPU
    usage.

No trouble at all with this C7 emu. Sounds really good, though no piano expert, it just sounds about roughly the same as a Yammi C7 to me. Thanks again Sound Magic!

Try this: 1. If you're using a 64 bit Windows, then copy the instruemnt to the "VST x64" folder instead (or the one you've got assigned to this) 2. The *.Zip file comes with two files and a folder. Make sure that it downlaoded correctly (try re-downloading it). Also, make sure that you extract the contents of the compressed package directly inside your VST folder. The DLL alone won't work, you also need the folder that comes with it. Please let me know if it helped you.

Great if you can get it working. I have it on my old XP laptop and it works great. Downloaded and installed it twice on my new PC, once the zip file from one reputable site and then the rar file directly from the Paino1 site. Made sure not only the .dll files but the whole folder was installed to my VST folder, even tried making a new folder.. my Daw scans and finds it... it opens up.. but no sound and the keys don't show any sign of responding no matter if I strike them with my controller or the mouse. I'm about to give up.

I have downloaded and copied .dll to FL Studio VST plugins folder. The piano comes up but no sound. Lights flash when keys are pressed but no sound. Has anyone got any ideas? Thanks

My man, you need to put every file related to the any plugin you wanna add in 3 places to be safe. Vst Plugins, Fruity plugins and the other one.

I compared a couple of plugins and I really like Piano One. I just have some trouble with the low tones, sounding somehow "unnatural", like some sort of artificial rumble rather than a clear clean sound. Can anybody suggest some tweak in the options to correct for this? Thanks!!!

Hey! Use EQ filter, and decrease the lower tones. This should help.

Wow! This plugin sounds as good as some of the 50GB $300 plugins. Thanks so much to the creator! This sounds leaps and bounds better than other free piano plugins like 4front.

Can someone help me explain how to open the vst? I downloaded it and for some odd reason the file is zipped and won't open.

Unzip the file using winrar or 7zip. Just right click and click "extract files". Once the file is unzipped place it inside the folder where the other plugins are located (my pluggins folder is located on Program Files (x86). If you DO NOT have a file for your pluggins just created one and place it there. Then open FL STudio > options > file settings > VST extra plugin search folder, Then just select the folder where the plugin is located :)

Yes. You need more than just the software. Setting up MIDI is allot more complicated than just install and play. Get on the forums at homerecording.com and search or ask for directions. The guys there will help you with anything you need to know.

I'm not sure if it's just me but the piano seems to not play the same notes twice in a row which makes it hard to use :(

Just shorten the note before so the next one dont start right away. You can shorten 1/16 of its leinght. Wont make big difference.

Solid VST, sounds a lot better after a little tweaking with the reverb etc, only downside is the low E key has a quite a horrible ringing but only at a certain velocity. https://soundcloud.com/will-halford-1/think-of-me-the-phantom-of-the-opera-piano-cover

This is the piano sound I've been waiting for since the mid 90s. You only hear the tone and reverberation. You don't hear the action, or any other crap. This is PURE. Not to mention the decay to silence is flawless, and the tones mingle sweetly. And it's fucking FREE. Also, I'm using this on several years old P4 machines, win7 32-bit, 2gb of ram, embedded audio, and having no problems. Nuff said!

I think for a freebee! Awesome! Love it. As stated just below, relax the velocities and volumes etc for a lovely sound. You can always add the fake (realism) sounds efx after like the stomping of the keys etc.

This is the only piano vst I have used and I am not really thinking about trying another one. For those who feel it is not giving you a soft sound when you touch the keys slowly, reduce the minimum volume to 0. Add some release so that the note sustains a bit. This can make you sound really good. Note that the present version also has more options not shown in the figure.

It sounds very natural, but it won't play the same some note twice for some reason... That's a big problem but, if it gets fixed, I will surely use this!

Good and natural piano sound. A fine-fine tuning on the release and reverb and I got it where I wanted it. Thanks!

What the hell? This is a fantastic sounding piano. Try setting your midi velocity at 70, instead of 96 or 127 or whatever is typical. It sounds much better. Also, mess with reverb and add Ambience piano reverb preset and it will be perfect.

To anybody complaining this is trash. Keep in mind this will crackle on a slow computer or if you have a bad soundcard. It has the best controls for any piano vst, I perfer VS Upright 1 but this has the most playabillity.

To anyone posting saying this is trash is obviously not a piano player. This is a well respected plug in and it's free so why whinge? Go and find something else or even better, spend some money on a proper one if this is too lowly for you. It's not perfect but it's more than adequate for most peoples use.

One of the best Sounding Piano VST I ever used in my life . I feel it more little better in sound quality comparing to pricey "Pianissimo". Great Piano VST - I must say :-) and it's totally free.

I am a classical Pianist, allow me to describe, this freebie is on top, the freaking best I have worked with, I read some of the others comments, one in particular I will respond to as I praise this, if these controls are limited for you-JUST RUN another plugin side by side in your track BUS, this is pretty simple to do you know! For me, I really don't need to download other pianos sound banks, being clever with the control, limited as you may think, you can change up the piano one to sound like other pianos-a good EAR work's nicely for this so complicated endeavor its actually SIMPLE. Turning the knobs can be FUN for you-Give it a try. Just don't sprain your forefinger clicking the mouse buttons. Don't waste your money on buying Piano VST at your local 'Guitar Center' or on some VST website, download this one, turn on your states classical radio station and listen, you can tune piano one to what is being played.

I compared the audio for the piano one with a Yamaha Clavinova CVP and then realised how good the piano one is. The shape and fall of the note and the overall tone is good enough to confuse the piano one with the Clavinova's default piano. The only fault with the Piano One sound is that it doesn't fare well for a natural clean studio no reverb sound.

I just downloaded the supreme piano 1 for Macintosh Audio Unit version 1.1 I'm confused because I see Windows download is version 1.3, but in any case, I installed the plugin into Digital Performer, and the piano sound is beautiful. I am wondering why I don't see the 3 buttons as shown on the website in the plug-in. The 3 buttons I am referring to are the ones pictured on the website and are labeled: "More Pianos", "Addon System", and "Web updates". It also does not have sliders for each parameter, but rather knobs. There are also no reverb types, only a knob to increase or decrease. I also ran the windows VST version, and noticed the same thing. Does anyone know why this is. I am very interested in the other products, but am concerned if purchasing any additional instruments will have this issue.

Just a superb free grand piano (Yamaha). Version 1.1 has many improvements, like the release time now is lower so we can play more staccato style for Jazz and Latin stuff ;-) Reverb seems to be the same no matter what preset we select, but there are many superb free VST ones !
