    The new Gigapiano... tell me more!

    Tascam sight doesn\'t say much about it... Who made it? What make piano is it? Layers? Details? ANYONE???? Piano libraries have come miles from the first (& hardly usable) Gigapiano. Is Tascam keeping pace, perhaps breaking new ground? I\'m sqeeeemishly excited!

    Pianojoe,

    To be perfectly frank here, I never liked the 16 bit Gigapiano and if 24 bits is going to make a difference with that mic positioning that the user sets for the piano, I\'d be quite surprised.
    A great sampled piano should sound great at 16 bits as a foundation for processing it higher @24 bits. The Bardstown Bose is a good example of this. It just keeps getting better.

    I think the new gigapiano is a new one, not an update of the old and dated gigapiano..

    Hey Alan, I dont think its the same GigaPiano from Gigasampler days... as far as I understand it its a whole new sampled piano.

    Yep, a brand new one, with 6 layers pedal up and another pedal 6 down.

    Ed and Alex.

    Thanks for the heads up..I\'ll be updating to Giga 3.0 in April. BTW, My Midioverlan works flawless with the 2 computer set up..(Giga Machine - Sonar Kontakt Machine) I\'m quite pleased here.

    That\'s right! It\'s 7 layers. An odd number.

    Damn, Bruce Hornsby means a lot of film music aficionados ain\'t gonna use it. And that means we still be needing Worra, Hans, Michiel, etc. Damn!

    This to me is good news! I\'m tired of all the \'dark\' pianos. I like a bright sound. Can\'t wait to hear it!
