Production Grand was recorded with 16 velocity layers, but the size was just too unmanageable! We chose the best 12 velocity layers for the final product which includes:
12 velocities pedal up samples
12 velocities pedal down samples
12 velocities release samples
All the velocities are evenly recorded across the piano. Every velocity on each note had precisely the same trigger velocity when sampled. This gives a very even velocity range across the entire piano.
