Native Instruments – The Maverick
CHARACTERISTIC VINTAGE GRAND
- One-of-a-kind, unconventional sound
- State-of-the-art sample quality for rich, dynamic performance
- Sampled from a vintage 1905 grand piano
An expressive vintage grand piano, sampled in meticulous detail for authentic tone and distinctive character. Perfectly suited to pop, rock, urban, and jazz.
THE MAVERICK is an impeccable recreation of a sonically-singular instrument – a 1905 concert grand made for the Prince of Prussia. THE MAVERICK delivers a wide range of color and an unconventional sound where every key has character – a singular piano built for royalty.
ADJUSTING YOUR SOUND
THE MAVERICK’s extensive tweaking options make it perfect for all contemporary productions. Control levels of pedals, damper, string, and hammer sounds. Adjust timbre with the Color knob. Turn the Dynamic knob to change the dynamic range. The Lid control adjusts brightness. And built-in effects let you fine-tune the sound without ever leaving the interface.
THE MAVERICK boasts over 2,500 individual samples and 18 velocity zones, allowing each note to sound with stunning realism. As with all the DEFINITIVE PIANOS, separate overtone and resonance samples let the piano’s natural vibrations sing. Even key releases were sampled in nine velocity layers.
BEHIND THE SCENES
These pristine instruments were created in partnership with sonic artisan Uli Baronowsky of Galaxy Instruments. Galaxy Instruments are also responsible for the highly acclaimed NI instruments RISE & HIT and THE GIANT.
