What is the EGP-7080?
EGP-7080 means Electric Grand Piano 70 & 80
The EGP-7080 is an instrument based on the samples of Yamha CP70 and CP80 pianos.
But the yamaha CP70 and CP 80 are not the same?
Yes and no.
The CP80 has an octave of notes longer than the CP70, and an additional equalizer and effects section.
But not only !
All the electronic instruments of the 70s and 80s have the same peculiarity: Each model is unique and does not sound the same.
But then in this case why not two different CP70?
Because at the base we had only one Yamaha CP70.
At the beginning we just wanted to sample our Yamaha CP70 and create the VST only with our piano. But during the recording session, a musician friend, who owns a Yamaha CP80 came to see us with his Piano to compare the two instruments.
So, we have both sampled our CP70 and its CP80.
We have recorded two banks of our CP70. Each sampling with different equipment and settings.
The result between the two is subtle, but justifies the integration of the two samples in the EGP-7080.
For the CP80, we have both changed equipment and adjustments, but also played with the equalizers of the piano. The result is two different CP80 Pianos (the Piano CP80_2 sounds clearer, more rock!)
The difference between the CP70 and the CP80 is very audible. The two instruments, originally, did not sound the same at all.
So in the EGP-7080 you have two Yamaha CP70 libraries and two Yamaha CP80 libraries. But that’s not all !
We have created layers between the CP70 and CP80, allowing you to play with the CP70 and CP80 together!
To finish (and this is a huge important detail):
We have – as in our instrument MKS-20Vst – implemented the famous Roland Dimension D chorus !
The EGP-7080 has many complete settings such as ADSR, Brightness, Separate volume of each piano, octaves, chorus and tremolo.
