Grand S delivers the rich harmonic structure, warm tone, and full resonances of the Steinway D Concert Grand Piano, used in concerts and recordings by some of the world’s greatest artists.

Two Characteristics

It may seem like a minor detail, but to experts it means the world. The Grand S piano was recorded with open lid as well as with the lid removed, and separate miking techniques. As a result Session Keys Grand S comes with two very distinct piano sample sets: “Concert” favoured in classic recordings and “Studio” for popular music applications. Switch between the two piano characteristics as your creativity requires.


This stylish pentagonal controller makes Session Keys Grand S more than just a great piano. Not only is it beautifully designed, but it’s a phenomenally powerful tool, able to transform the whole sound from normal piano to eerie atmospheres to pure mechanical sounds and back.
Instant flexible control in a single knob.


The sound of ideas coming to life: the Animator offers an intuitive and inspiring way to jam with more than 400 flexible piano phrases that follow your harmonies. Use the pitch bend and modulation wheels to increase or decrease complexity and control the dynamic of your session partner.

Smart Chord

Stuck in a black hole of inspiration and need some suitable chord changes? Full chords or Animator riffs can be played via either the pad controller or single keys. Just set the key of your song and let Smart Chord Mode create the harmonies.


Intense music production sessions can put a strain on your senses. With its pure, minimalistic and clean design Session Keys Grand S piano is easy on the eyes and helps you stay cool in heated sessions.
