Abbey Road vintage piano recording with Pianoteq

Posted on

Today, we performed a vintage recording test with a simulation of the famous Abbey Road Studio 3. From the 30s to the 60s, many renowned pianists like Artur Schnabel, Claudio Arrau, Wilhelm Backhaus, Arthur Rubinstein and Alfred Cortot recorded several reference albums in this studio. We wanted to take up this challenge to bring back to life this unique sound of the vinyl so liked by audiophiles.

The preset we created to make this recording is based on an Alfred Cortot record released in 1953 by EMI.

Piano: Steinway Model D (prepared and tuned by Jean Coco)
Recording venue: Abbey Road, Studio 3
Microphones: B&K 4006, Royer SF12
