All materials are meticulously sourced and refined to ensure unprecedented performance giving the CFX enough presence and power to be heard over a full symphony orchestra. Abbey Road Studio One Abbey Road Studios really needs no introduction. The legendary studio complex has a history that spans over 80 years and encompasses some of the most celebrated projects in music. Studio One is Abbey Roads largest orchestral studio accommodating an 110 piece orchestra and 100 piece choir simultaneously. The acoustics are clear and warm with a reverb time of 2.3 seconds. Microphones A team of highly skilled sound engineers captured the sound of the CFX piano in Abbey Road. A range of microphone set-ups were used to capture a huge range of different sounds and settings. The microphone perspectives were split into three distinct types: Classic: The Classic perspective most faithfully captures the natural tonal character clarity and nuance of the instrument. Contemporary: The Contemporary perspective creates a piano sound that is bright and hard with lots of attack from the hammers but also maintains the pianos warmth with intimate ambience. Player: The Player perspective offers the experience of playing the CFX from the piano bench in Studio One particularly when reproduced over high quality headphones.
