This free wavetable expansion for the GSi Gemini features the sampling of a
gorgeous Yamaha CP70B owned by italian Youtuber “Marcoballa”. This particular
piano was completely restored and re-stringed in 2018 by some of the best piano
technicians in Milan, Italy.
The sampling process took place in October 2021 by GSi using a custom piano
sampling robot that ensures a precise velocity response across the entire keyboard.
The result is a total of 429 MB worth of sampled material for 316 samples, with
velocity layers ranging from 12 to 6 per key according to the key zone. Samples are
not looped, so the natural decay of the instrument has been preserved.
The recording has been done using the line-out only with just a bit of EQ correction
and no further processing.
No presets are provided with this expansion. Select an Init preset from the PRESETS
page, then go the SELECT SOUND page, click the GSP-01 Sample Player box and
scroll down until you find the new sample sets, select the one you wish to play, then
add effects at your taste. Finally, get back to the PRESET page, give your preset a new
name and a brief description, then click STORE.
