    PMI Yamaha C7, Bosendorfer, for this?

    I have many Sampletekk pianos (and love them all) but still need one for staccato chords that would sound good and rich. The ones I have aren't right for this. In the song, the White Grand is too thin, Steiny D=not right tone, 7Cs=too soft, Rain Piano (I thought this one might work but)=gets lost, etc.

    The closest sound I can think of is something that would do like early Rundgren. I need it to stand out without sounding clangy or cheap. I even tried compressing but still not right.

    The closest demo sound I found is the PMI Yamaha C7. Opinions? Thanks!

    Too thin, too soft, etc. ?

    You might want to try a little known kind of plug-in called the EQ

    I have. For this particular song, though, it's the piano that is not cutting it.
    Thin, soft descriptions were just to give more clarity. As in why a certain piano wouldn't be used in pop, etc. Basically I'm asking if you were doing staccato (think Rundgren, since it is a style you'd know) which piano would you reach for in your library?

    Vintaudio makes a great yamaha grand sample library. Check that one out as well.

    The Emperor has a HUGE sound. Really nice.

    Believe it or not I used Redmaticsa's Autosampler to convert all the sounds from my Kurzweil PC88 to EXS24 and it's Stage Piano is probably what I would choose.

    My first instinct for that kind of Rundgren sound is the Rain Piano with really gnarly compression- that's what usually makes the difference. Otherwise, I think Asher is on the right track- pull out an old hardware synth like a Korg or Alesis and use its harsh 2 velocity piano. Even with all the amazing sampled pianos these days sometimes its still the Quadrasynth piano that makes me happy
