Sound Magic Releases Piano Thor Version 1.5 For Mac

The virtual reconstruction of a legendary piano has finally been made possible by Sound Magic, and it’s called the Thor Version 1.5.  The Thor was based off of a Steinway D piano, with the number CD443 – played by the talented Vladmir Horowitz.

Horowitz certainly had an intimate relationship with this piano, which was beastly in its size.  The pianist never had the chance to be played out live in 1989, but still saw plenty of use at his private recording studios.  The dynamics of this piano were faithfully reproduced in Thor 1.5, giving it the tone and contrast of its analog brother.
