    I'm afraid that the demos both sound a bit limp to me; maybe that's the sound that you're going for. Also the Joplin is far too fast; Ragtime is not supposed to be played like this (no matter what the common mis-conception is). Sorry to be so negative, but I have to call it as I see it (hear it, probably).

    Well, it doesn't sound as your "normal" big 9 feet grand pianos, cause it isn't! It's an upright and it should sound like that.
    I'm not sure what you mean by "limp", but maybe you could explain.
    I agree on the ragtime. Mostly they are played to fast.
    No problem with negative opinions, all opinions, positive or negative are welcome, as long as they are constructive!

    Hi Worra, good luck with your new release. I really liked the second demo, sounds just like the real thing ! It has a very strange character.. takes you back in time , know what i mean ? Well done

    Something OT :

    I always wanted to ask : Who wrote the "Typewriter" marimba demo ? That thing is stuck in my mind for ages now ( Toukoutouroutou-toutouroutou-toutou-t KLAK~! ) Very clever idea whoever wrote it.

    Hi Theodor.

    Yes, it was produced to sound as "upright" as possible. The recorded impulses used in Gigapulse really adds character to the piano, but you can use it without those to get a dryer sound.

    The "Typewriter" was composed by Leroy Anderson (http://www.leroy-anderson.com)

    I was probably misled by the "hype" in the original post, but I found the sound to have a limited dynamic range and no edge to it at all. I have played many upright pianos as well as grands and I do know some uprights that sound like the demos, so in that respect it is good :>) However I wouldn't describe the sound as having attitude and it certainly doesn't rock (IMO)!

    Worra - sounds like my uncle's old piano used to, it was great hearing that sound again - thanks.

    Best of luck with the new release.
