When I finally upgraded from Giga 2.5 to G3, one of the first samples I got was the Bardstown Bosendorfer. After working through a myriad of problems (not related to the sample), and finally upgrading my system to a P4, I've had a chance to relax and just play this lovely piano...
I've always been a fan, but this new 24 bit G3 version just blows me away. You can argue about 24 bit and 16 bit all day, but there is a a brilliance or "presence" that comes through in the G3 version that is quite noticeable to me.
One thing, too, is that I'm able to use lower latency settings on my soundcard. So playing the piano feels much tighter.
Better playability and better sound: '05 is looking better already!
