I write primarily relaxing New Age solo piano material. I would very much like to record my next CD with a software synth piano. Because of the nature of the material I write, I need a piano with a full, vibrant sound with the sustain pedal-down. I've read several posts about Ivory, which are usually very positive. However, one review I read (which may have been at Sweetwater.com) said that the Ivory didn't really have real pedal-down samples, and that it only simulated the sympathetic resonance that naturally occurs in a real grand. Is that true? If so, does it still have a rich, full resonant sound that you would need for a piece that's soft and a slower tempo? Or are there other VSTi pianos that are better suited for this kind of material?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help!
