Ew has a new piano at 150 GB in total (for 4 pianos) !!!!!!!!!!
Strings? GOS2 will (hopefully) be released in 2007. Gary? And anyways, as every pianist needs to play a little Bach and a little Chopin, same with sampling companies. Each company needs to have a piano. hehe
I do think that variation makes things better. For someone maybe a 50$ piano is better than a 500$ one. Maybe a less velocity layers is what he's looking for (who knows really...) There's absolutely nothing wrong with more products really...
The idea that prices may go up or down is scaring me though?
Cause, while, many products mean less monopoly and thus prices would eventually drop somehow... the research and money it takes to build and library, or a modelling software, is huge, so eventually one needs to make up for this money and make up profit! These two above ideas clash! :-/
Apart from the ranting!
The 4th etude by Chopin is one of my favourite, and my fingers are way to big for it to be easy playing... so I never ever study it.
It sounds pretty good I have to admit. Especially the pedal...
Much impressed here. But of course I already have another library... so I'm probably fine...
I don´t know if we REALLY need a new piano, BUT........
1.It doesn´t sound bad (maybe better than Pianoteq´s attempt to create a hybrid piano)
2. I like the video. Indeed things like note stealing or harddisk alarm when streaming with a notebook in a live situation are horrible. Maybe this plugin can overcome these shortcomings of sampled pianos.
3. The price is right (144 EUR).
Even if I don´t need another piano (and so says my wife) I´ll definitely try the demo once the Mac version is out
