Thanks. I am aware of the website, but I think this product has been advertised before only to disappear from the radar screen. Now it's back again. So I am a bit skeptical about the package, given it's history.
I listened to the Poulenc demo. The mix is odd, as if the violin sample is played to a live piano recording.
well I don't know, I have listened the demo,
and I don't know what say.
I will wait for Solo Stradivari of Gary and there I will compare the products.
What do you think comparing this demo with those found for VSL or Kirk Hunter?
Regarding the Poulenc demo, the piano seems overbearing at points, especially in the lower octaves which sound muddy in contrast to the violin. Perhaps it's just my speakers (or my ears).
There's some strange tones occurring at about :41 and :42 seconds into the piece.
I suppose if this were for piano only, it would sound better
All pianos sound muddy when played in the lower ranges with chords and arpeggios such as was done in this Poulenc demo. This is why professional piano musicians and composers do not typically play and compose piano music in these lower ranges on a piano, such as was done on this Poulenc demo. The Bardstown Bosendorfer most definitely sounds much more clear and pristine in these lower note ranges than most other pianos.
Also, the person who produced this demo used a considerable amount of Altiverb processing on the piano in this demo in order to set it back in the mix in order to feature the violin. Anytime extensive reverb processing is used on any instrument, you won't hear distinct clarity and definition on that instrument.
