It has become the only software piano I use.
I have tried Pianoteq, Galaxy Vintage D, TruePianos, BluePianos. They are all in wait (for the upgrade) mode in favor of Garritan Steinway Virtual Grand BASIC.
A digital piano takes the modern art of making music to new heights of creative expression - relatively inexpensive and no tuning.
Whether you're getting into this wonderful world for the first time, or you've been doing it since ADAM, point #1....
Don't trust your ears.
Point #2: a sampled piano PLAYED is ... what can I say?.... a TOTALLY different animal from a sampled piano LISTENED TO
Point #3: never... never... never... fall in love with a sampled piano (or a real one for that matter).... take the good moments ...when you're gigging alone or in front of folks...you love the sound....you thought "that was great"... but always look for better... cause there IS better
Point #4: Big money = no does NOT equal BIG piano sound..... Sooooo much more complicated than that...
Well yes you can go for digital piano. It is considered as d best supplementary for standard pianos. It does not have a feature of tuning, need less care and also quite reasonable. It has a piano as well a keyboard and it is fun to play. So I think you should go with digital piano as it is also latest in demand.
I would prefer here for a digital piano. It is what which Iím using now and it is also very flexible with modern music.
Some years back, I latched onto the Roland FP3 digital piano. Great sound, never needs tuning, and with a full-size keyboard (that has enough weight to not 'feel' like a Lowery organ) whose action is close to a lighter European grand than a Yammi or Steinway, realistic enough to be used in concert by some well-known performers as a way of guaranteeing that the piano in whatever venue will be consistent and good quality. It does rely more than a little on the quality of your amplification system, but comes with a quality Roland preamp for headphone practice.
No, it's not the same as having a 6ft Yamaha or (insert your own preference here) in your living room, but you can travel with it, set it up in about two minutes, and store it in a closet if you're short of room, to boot.
And for my laptop, I compose n the Garritan Steinway. Nothing else comes close in the price bracket.
