    Why would a 5.1 Galaxy Steinway library better??

    Hi, I was wondering why a 5.1 piano library like Galaxy Steinway would sound any better then a 2 channel piano library? Especially if I\'m recording on a 2 channel audio CD??

    Can somebody explain the justification for this 5.1 Galaxy Steinway??

    Re: Why would a 5.1 Galaxy Steinway library better??

    2 reasons

    1) For film composers who work in 5.1, it gives them a piano sampled in surround to use with, say, the East West Quantum Leap Symphony Orchestra 5.1 library (Platinum).

    2) For the musician with 5.1 in their studio, it gives them, finally, a piano sound that fully surrounds them like an actual instrument does. A piano sample is not just for recording, you know. For those of us not yet able to afford a Steinway D and a world-class acoustic room, it looks to be a great library for playing enjoyment.

    Take a look at the Galaxy Hall in Virtual View.

    The power of the Galaxy Steinway lies in its detailled articulation - in stereo or surround. Recorded with love.

    So there\'s more than one demo?? The sorry old Rach demo didn\'t show the sample off well at all!

    Yes, there are now three demos. Does it seem strange that there are no surround demos, when that is supposed to be the particular point of the Galaxy?
