I think I wrote this thread at the wrong place, so I give it a try here insteed.
As I mentioned earlier, I have had som problems with PMI Old lady Grand piano on my computer, due to the very demanding computer requierments.
Now I wonder if anyone knows about some great Rhodes Piano sound that doesn´t requiere to much from my computer, when it comes to RAM and size.
First of all I would like to have a Rhodes that sounds like an real Rhodes.
Of course the latency is set by the quality of the soundcard, but I don´t want to press the key on my keybord, and then have time to drink a cup of coffee before I hear the note playing because of the big buffer size.
Mikael, don't forget that the size of the library is no longer relevant when you use disk streaming.
With disk streaming, what makes the difference is the number of samples in a program, as a little bit of ram has to be dedicated to each sample.
So, if you have two libraries, each with 73 keys sampled across 10 velocities, that's 730 samples. When the samples are streamed from disk, there is no performance difference whether the samples are looped or whether they play for the entire length - although you may hear loops if they aren't perfect, and some sounds change subtley as the note decays.
1.5gb Vs 240mb isn't going to make much of a dent in the average hard disk drive these days.
In the end, you need to listen to all the demos and decide for yourself.
It would be ideal if you could try them side by side somewhere...
I decided to try the Dusty Electric.
I bought it, and it´s probably the best sounding Rhodes on the market in my opionion.
Very esy to just pay and download as well.. and the best of all.. it´s DOESN´T COST A FORTUNE!!!
They have som other fantastic sounds.. just listen to the whistles and the flutes.. and probably the coolest of them all.. DEMONIC vocals
