The Art Vista Virtual Grand has a wide range of "style" presets available. And within each "style", there are four presets: soft, medium, hard, and extended. I don't see these explained on the web site or in the documentation. Is this a standard sample library thing?
My assumption is that within each category, the same samples, eq, etc are used, but the samles are mapped to a different velocity curve. I don't own the full Kontact, so I can't open them up to see what's going on. Can anyone explain or elaborate?
To my ears, it seems that the "soft" setting reaches the "harder" samples at lower velocities, which actally makes it the loudest piano... the opposite of what I expected.
Hans: Thanks for pointing out where this is explained. This of course was included in the documentation that I have, but I missed it.
While I have you on the line... I know at this point you are at the mercy of Native Instruments, but please know that there are users eagerly awaiting a MacIntel-compatible version of this instrument, specificallly one that will run in Mac Cubase 4 with the ever-mysterious VST 3 spec.
