I have been away from the music making and piano sampling scene for about 2 years. I will appreciate it very much if someone could help me catch up with what happened in the past 2 years.
I had GigaStudio 2.5 running on XP and I used and enjoyed using the following piano sample libraries. EastWest Bosendorfer 275, EastWest Steinway B, Trachman Steinway C (spelling?), and the Bosendorfer 290 piano that runs as a VST (I forgot the name now). It was a great time when PC software sampling was made possible and piano samples libraries flourished, with mp3 samples available over the internet.
So I would like to know if there are any good sample libraries introduced since then? I most use the libraries for new-age type of music. How are sampling products? I know there is GS3 now but is there anything new and good?
