    New Roland SRX-11 Complete Piano vs sampled pianos

    Roland has just released a new piano expansion board, the SRX-11 Complete piano. (It is also in the new keyboard, the RD700SX) It is 64mb (I think). The sample was taken from a Steinway D. To my ears it sounds very good, despite the small size.

    See this link for a demo

    I'd be interested to get opinions on how it compares to the GS3 sampled pianos

    Thanks! i completely missed this one.
    It sounds way better than the srx 2 piano board.

    It's great [the board] !
    Even thought I have many great Sample Libs [thanks to Group Buy] and few others like B290, I'm still using my Kurzweil PC2X a lot and most of the time, I still feel that the PC2X Piano fit very well in a mix ...other Libs are either too loud or get lost in a mix.
    So, for general, I'm using PC2X, for Piano solo, I'm using Old Lady, C7 etc something Gigs in size
    The PC2X has smaller than 16 Megs in size

    I believe that the 64MB is dediacated to the one piano, and the others are just processing variations.
    I've almost made up my mind to get it. At 24.5kg it is not much heavier than my FP5, and much lighter/smaller than my P250 .

    Is looping no compromise?

    Hi,

    Size isn't always quality.

    Sound like the Steinway of the Galaxy studio. Sound is great.
    However we hear no natural decay (loop)

    juste a dream :

    Roland produce a piano software with 10 velocity, no loop, release pedal, sympatic resonance samples (with behaviour between keys), realtime pedal down/up.

    The Steinway Roland in VSTi / DXi size 4 go.

    Regards,

    Olivier

    no sympatic resonance, bad level in several layers, samples recorded with noise, out of tune -> a lot of sampled piano = compromise.

    This quality at 64 mo is an example that the recording session is very important.

    And a piano should be recorded at the same day, all the keys.

    I do like the third demo called "ClassicGrand". Very close and soundtrack-ish.

    Incredible demo. According to me Roland a specific audio compression algorytms. 64 mo ? incredible...

    704 samples in 64 mo ?

    704 samples -> 352 (88*4) + 352 (88*4) (pedal down or release samples ?)

    all 88 keys sampled !

    some 2 Go sampled pianos have only (44 or less) keys.

    No, Roland’s RD-700SX Digital Piano contains waveforms derived from the SRX-11 piano sampling sessions.
