I need help choosing a good piano.
I\'m a relative newcomer to Giga, and am using a Steinway piano for Giga that can be downloaded from this siteYes, it\'s free, and no I\'m not the developer)
(I\'ve never seen this piano mentioned on this site, and thought I should post the link.) You will want to increase the release times, apply a low pass filter to the upper register, add a little reverb, etc...
I realize that there are some limitations to this sample (it is not chromatically sampled, it has has no pp layer, nor release layer) On the other hand, its tone is wonderful. I want to purchase a piano that is similar to this one in timbre, but has pp layers, etc. I wish I could afford to buy all the libraries out there and see which comes closest to this, but this is not possible.
Or this piano not as wonderful as I think, and I just haven\'t heard a really good Giga piano yet? (But it sounds like a Steinway to my poor ears...)
Or should I write the developer begging for him to sample additional layers?
