A short while ago I stayed with someone who had a Roland HP 7e digital piano...
A fairly expensive instrument.
Through headphones this piano (to my ears) sounded great...not a perfect emulation...but a very nice tone.
(it wasn't so great through it's own speakers).
As a result I decided I'd purchase a decent virtual acoustic piano......I picked the Arts Vista VGP...not the most expensive but it seemed to have a good reputation around the forums.
Compared to the Roland, I was quite disappointed in the Arts Vista.
To me it sounded very 'boxy'....even a tad muffled with quite a lot of presumably natural room reverb.
The Roland was livelier and the (very little) reverb sounded much nicer and subtler.
I was expecting the Arts Vista to sound every bit as good as the Roland...if not better.
Was I wrong to expect this?
