Congratulations, Michiel........ Absolutely beautiful sounding piano! The Debussy demo sounds wonderful. Without a doubt, one of the BEST sampled pianos I\'ve ever heard! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Gary Thomas
When I saw this announcement this morning it totally made my day.
So beautiful sounding !! Listening to the demo right now. Bravo on another great piano!! Even without a downloadable evaluation copy to test drive, I\'m sold. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
One questions: I\'ve been waffling about using Kontakt (mainly because I\'ve experienced some issues with it --prolly should get more ram..currently using 768) for these newer piano libraries and waiting for Giga 3 (but who knows when that\'ll be). What do you recommend as for pc specs the Kontakt version.
this is a very promising release. I was waiting for a Steinway D sample a long time as your Boesendorfer is excellent but maybe sometimes too brilliant for some of my songs.
I´ll check the competitors (milan, Worra and Hans Adamson) which seem to have excellent samples as well but your introductory offer is just too tempting [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Does the repedalling and resonance samples work with the Kontakt version as well (if my \"old lady Mac\" can handle this)?
And please...no more pianos otherwise I (as a piano addict) will never be able to afford a G5 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Judging by the demo, Martin, they sound completely different to me, the latest one appearing to me to be far superior to the earlier! The big question is, as said above, which of so many great Steinways coming down the pike is the \"best.\" Read \"best for a given purpose.\"
Michiel might want to post, say, the Beethoven Moonlight (slow movement) (he\'s got a midi file I sent him about a year ago), and/or other solo classical/jazz stuff, so we can get a better appreciation of the sample.
Seems just a little less ambient than the pmi bos wet samples, which may be a good thing, although I like the wet pmi bos a lot.
