The Ultimate Model of a Model B

The Ultimate Model of a Model B

The 6' 11" Steinway Model B is the most recorded studio piano for a reason, delivering the ideal, mixable studio grand sound as heard on countless modern hits, across every genre. Its rich tones blend perfectly with drums, bass, electric guitar, and other surrounding instruments — never muddying up mixes and instead giving you a balanced, mix-ready piano track every time.

Introducing UltraResonance<sup>™</sup> Technology

Introducing UltraResonance Technology

Sympathetic string resonance — or the phenomenon of undamped strings and the soundboard vibrating in response to other strings being played — is often the Achilles’ heel of virtual pianos. Using proprietary modeling and sampling techniques, UA's exclusive UltraResonance technology exactingly recreates these complex interactions, giving you the airy, evolving palette of harmonics that allows notes to melt into each other. From soft muted notes to languid, pillowy nuances, UltraResonance sets a new benchmark in resonance and realism.

Simple Control of Perfectly Placed Mics

Simple Control of Perfectly Placed Mics

Designed to give you a professional, record-ready sound right out of the gate, Ravel's easy-to-use interface lets you sculpt your piano sounds with three pairs of hand-chosen vintage mics from famed engineer Allen Sides' mic locker. Featuring only the controls you need, Ravel ensures you'll never get lost in confusing menus. Easily tweak Ravel's Volume, Tone, and a microphone Close/Room slider, letting you go from intimate tones to a lush room sound, and everywhere in between.

More Modern Textures

More Modern Textures

Looking to add drama, suspense, or other left-of-center timbres? Ravel's Reverse feature lets you easily add unique atmospheric piano sounds. Use the Mix control to add in subtle reverse textures to your normal piano playing, or go completely "backwards" for all kinds of fun. You can even “play the control” for surprising real-time performance changes.

      CUT IT OUT UA

      if you want a piano that sounds great but stops playing lush chords whenever. I have ten fingers, this works if you have three

      Brilliant steinway emulation

      Piano plugins really stretch DAW processing, but having this plugin through the UA Apollo is a dream - no lag or processor slowdown, really responsive, and subtle, the micing is terrific - so much possibility and a great tool in composition.

      Astounding!

      My MIDI control setup is a bit different from most. I use Midi Guitar 2, which doesn't require any hardware. It picks up polyphonic guitar notes and converts them to MIDI in real-time with very low latency. While there are touch sensitivity issues with this plugin, the Ravel instrument handles them better than any other I've used. Its sound character is exceptional, capturing the wooden key and pedal sounds beautifully. This instrument leaves me excited about the future of modeled instruments.

      Very natural sound

      A lot of pianos have excessive reverb giving a false sense of nice but the ravel is quite natural sounding and the tones are great. I haven’t seen a preset saying 80’s reggae yet So that’s something to look forward to in a piano preset menu.

      Sencillamente el mejor

      Stunning piano

      A stunning reproduction of this, feels right and authentic, sounds beautiful, the only piano emulator I need

      Sounds authentic

      It does sound like an authentic grand piano, which allows you to confidently use it in solo mode, not only in a busy mix. The controls are straightforward, I mainly use the room/close mike ratio and volume control.
      One of the best virtual grand pianos I’ve used!

      Testing

      Using the demo now. Love it so far. Nice features. The reverse feature is really cool.

      It's Decent

      Honestly, I love almost everything from UA, But this one misses the mark a bit.
      It's very basic. Totally usable, but basic. I did really like the reverse piano pre set and will probably use that on something, but overall I have others I will probably create with first.

      Missing the mark as a Piano

      Because of the company name most people would think that this item would blow your mind, but this item is missing the mark of what it should look like. No real body for a piano

      Unique and Nice! Reverse Sound

      Reverse Piano is very unique sound. I feel tricky and illusional when playing that .
