Are there any demos of "the Old Lady" or the "Black Grand" done in
Kontakt. I would like it for comparison purposes. Most of the Demos
are done in Gigastudio 3, and do sound very nice.
The only full Piano library I own is the PMI bosendorfer 290 VSTi, other than GPO and EWQL silver pianos. So I am looking to buy a full steinway library, either the PMI OLD LADY (Yes. I know about the 30 days deal going onn right now) or The Black Grand (Sampletekk).
I only own Kontakt and do not have Gigastudio. I am trying to decide if I
should go the Giga route or the Kontakt route. The Kontakt route would
be the easy way for me, since I already own Kontakt. I know that from
the numerous research I've done that GS3 along with gigapulse
captures the complex dynamics of piano sampling better than Kontakt
does. But are there any after effects or convolution reverbs you could
add to mimic the dynamics of GS3 in Kontakt (IR reverb, Sir etc) or any
other plugins. If this cannot be done, I would have no choice but to
invest in GS3, and all the other hardware cost that comes with GS3.
I sequence with Cubase SX 2.0.
