    Question No HonkyTonk piano, but Duet Steinways

    Folks, not that I'm really into honky tonk piano, but I noticed the other day when I chose the Honky Tonk piano option under multis, that instead of a honky tonk piano, I get a Steinway piano duo 1 and Steinway piano duo 2. Am I doing something wrong, or is there some setting somewhere that will enable me to use the Honky Tonk piano sound? Thanks so much in advance, Richard

    The Honky Tonk Piano sound is an emulation. It was first suggested by Styxx who acheived a honky-tonk piano sound by putting one of the GPO Steinway Dous on Track 1 of his sequencer and the other on Track 2, but then detunes the second track to be slightly out of tune to give it that honky tonk player piano sound. An MP3 rendition of Scott Joplin's "Bethena"using this technique is here.

    This is still one of the coolest demos I've heard!
