Abbey Road Studios CFX Lite from GARRITAN is an ARIA-powered virtual instrument with a library that captures the wide palette of tonal colors and subtle, expressive nuances of a Yamaha CFX Concert Grand Piano. The instrument was recorded in Abbey Road Studios' Studio One using a collection of the finest microphones.

Studio and Piano

  • Studio One's acoustics offer a warm and clear sound with a reverb time of 2.3 seconds, ideal for recording a piano
  • Each CFX is entirely hand-built by a small team comprising some of the world's most experienced and skilled craftsment – the result of their work is a piano with such tonal presence that it can be heard over the sound of a full symphony orchestra in the largest of concert halls


  • 20 layers of detail, including separate sample sets for pedals-up, sustain pedal down, and soft pedaling
  • EQ controls and a multitude of adjustable piano parameters
  • Customizable velocity and dynamic range
  • Convolution reverb, including outboard reverbs from Abbey Road Studios
  • Timbre Effect — simulates the change in timbre produced when instruments are played back at a speed different from the one they were recorded at
  • Partial pedaling (requires continuous pedal controller), and re-pedaling
  • Powered by the included ARIA Player — no need for a separate sampler
