    The second demo was made by a friend of mine, Sven Bornemark.

    Here\'s another demo made using the Rain Piano.
    I think that this, in a rather good way, shows the potential and unique sound of the Rain Piano.

    <font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">Since this piano (and te Rain Piano), has 8 velocities pedalup & 8 pedal down, it really makes good transitions between the layers. No filter what so ever was used, just the samples.
    When sampling the Studio Grand, I sampled 12-13 velocity layers/note & pedal, (10-11 with the Rain Piano).
    I used a specially developed software that enabled me to be very accurate when sampling different velocities since it\'s probably impossible to do this \"by hand\".
    From those samples I then chose 8 pedalup and 8 pedaldown from the set of samples.
    What I found was that having that many samples gave me really, really good transition between the velocity layers. When playing, you can\'t really hear when going from one layer to the other.
    This is also a thing that makes these pianos unique! I don\'t know of any sampled piano on the market today that actually uses 8/8 samples per note.

    I\'ve gotta say, dude, I am thrilled about these pianos. I\'ve been stuck with Gigapiano for awhile, not being able to decide what upgrade path to take but I think I\'ve found the ones for me. Can\'t beat the price either!

    I especially like the Rain Piano. It reminds me so much of 2 pianos that have great sentimental value to me: the one I grew up playing on, and one I played in a production of \"House of Blue Leaves.\" The one my family had only got a couple of tunings early on, but throughout the years it never went quite out of tune which made it a lot of fun to play on. The one from the show was some old thing that probably had been sitting out in the rain for awhile before we adopted it, and I must say your Rain Piano sounds exactly like it. Sorry to ramble, but the demos just evoked some long lost memory of happier times, and IMHO that really says a lot.

    I look forward to owning both of these libraries and using them if only for my own personal enjoyment. Great job and thank you.
