Keystep 1.5 is a free update for all existing users. It adds another tool to the massive “Models” factory library. The update adds a special new Double Felt Grand piano and is the first time Spectrasonics has expanded the instrument library of Keyscape. According to Spectrasonics, it has been the #1 most requested sound from Keyscape users.

Like the other keyboards and pianos in Keyscape, the new addition can be tweaked using the parameters mapped across four interface pages: main with reverb and performance, EQ, tweak, and other settings.

The update also ships with various ready-to-use presets, including cinematic, clear, dark, distant, dry, octavia, session, shimmer wash, and the deep. Spectrasonics also tells how the sound of the instrument was captured:

Once the acoustic piano was prepared in this special way, our acclaimed Spectrasonics sound development team (led by producer Eric Persing) then painstakingly sampled the instrument at our newly developed private recording studio — which features some of the largest naturally ambient recording spaces in Los Angeles.

Congratulations Spectrasonics for releasing this update. A nice free update with users getting even more content without paying extra. That is very welcome in times when many software companies are swaying towards subscriptions. And the question of whether the new instrument sounds great does not need to be asked with Spectrasonics releases. It’s excellent and very detailed.

The new Spectrasonics Keyscape version with the Double Felt Grand piano is a free update for existing users. Keyscape is available now for 329€/$379.
