Thanks Bruce. I do want to make clear, however, that my problem is not getting Giga piano to sit right in a mix. It\'s playing solo that gives me the problem: ff clips\\distorts when I really bang on the thang, and if I lower the amplitude so ff sounds right, pp and mp sound thin.
I understand what you\'re saying about the elephant through the telescope perspective, but I guess I can\'t understand how the instrument could have been recorded in such a way that you can\'t play both loud and soft without changing settings. Assuming the engineers left the mics in the same place for all velocities, wouldn\'t they have heard the same clipping I do when they sampled, telling them to reduce the gain for the ff samples?
Regardless, thanks again.
