I own quite a few nice sampled pianos (PMI Boesendorfer, Black Grand, White Grand, Yamaha C7 from Vintaudio, Virtual Grand from ArtVista) I just tried the new version (2.0) of the Pianoteq VSTi. It´s not bad but it sounds a bit thin overall (I only used the presets and did no tweaking). The nice side is the low cpu and RAM useage as well as nice resonance and pedal behaviour which needs a lot of cpu intensive scripting when using sample based pianos.
What is your experience when comparing VSTi pianos and sample based pianos? How is the VSTi from truepianos (couldn´t try a demo because there is no Mac version yet)?
Thanks for your input
