Complete Sound Control
The Main control panel features the Mic selection and mixing section center stage. Loading microphones is quick and easy while memory usage remains very reasonable. Adjust the mic’s volume with the slider and shut the mic off with its power switch.
The microphone selection and setups were chosen for their variety of use, the character of the piano VI Labs wanted to capture as well as how they compliment one another when mixing.
- CLOSE – A mix of mics inside the piano placed over the strings and hammers that capture a punchy detailed tone with a big stereo image. Great for pop/modern playing and hold up well in any mix.
- PLAYER – A stereo pair of mics that capture the sound heard sitting at the keys and pick up more of the hammer attack. More distant than Close mics, they’re great for classical and player’s perspective while also mixing well with other mics.
- SIDE – A mid-side vintage U87 set up right outside the rim that captures a balance of warmth and detail with a more focused image. Great for jazz and classical and blend well with other mics to add more room or detail. Side mics are also fully mono-capable due to the nature of the mid-side.
- ROOM – A mix of mics away from the piano that captures the complete instrument along with the room characteristics. Great for classical and for the unique perspective of the room sound and work great blended with any other mics.
“Ravenscroft 275” comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.0.0 or later).
