The Complete Collection of Chocolate Audio's Virtual Instruments
Details- Model 7 Grand Piano
The Model 7 grand piano was sampled from a outstanding example of a Yamaha C7 grand coda piano. Chocolate Audio's first idea was to sample another model, a CFIII, but when they went to the rental-house they totally fell in love with the C7 and chose it.
- Model 80 Electric Grand Piano
Sampled from a Yamaha CP80 compact electric grand, the Model 80 is a work of love and an homage to the sound that defined an era.
- Model D Grand Piano

- O.D.D. Grand Piano
Unusual Pianos you have been dreaming of having. Chocolate Audio already has four pianos in their product line, two of which are very sought-after top-notch models. They made the choice to release another stunning piano sample pack which was a difficult task to do, but it ended up being very rewarding in the end.
- Steinbach Upright Piano
When creating upright piano Instruments, it is very important deciding which upright piano to start from. When creating grand pianos, the choice is more limited, as there are fewer outstanding examples to chose from. Upright pianos are a totally different story, there are a multitude of choices. Chocolate Audio chose a piano capable of producing both a full sound and the on the edge of being slightly out-of-tune tones characteristic of so many historical recording of these types of pianos. They sampled a beautifully made italian upright piano built by Steinbach in Torino and placed it in a mid-size roomy studio surrounded by a plethora of microphones.
