    Undisclosed beta testers

    To our knowledge these are the only ones who have this long-awaited library.

    Looks like this is currently subject to change...
    Hope that the beta testers will be allowed to post some (hopefully existing) demos soon, would be interesting to hear how it sounds like.

    Brotha' Man Ken,

    I am as feverish for it as you are.

    The sound of many Pianos are already hard to beat, sonically that is.

    I doubt we will be able to " hear " it's enhancements.

    But I am hoping to feel and play it's enhancements.

    I have several great sounding Piano Libraries already, but this one is suppose to include the una corde samples, and mimic a real Steinway.

    Maybe then those of us with a good controller and Tri-pedal for sostenuto work will have our prayers answered.

    I have a feeling even the late Sigismond Thalberg would have approved.

    I am certain that many will make claims that it sounds better than everything else, but I will be paying attention to the person who comments on it's performance abilities.

    Samples recorded with the left pedal depressed, thus moving the keyboard to the right so the hammers only strike one string - thus "una corde."

    Not quite - samples recorded with the left pedal depressed. the centre one is for sostenuto - where one note or chord is held with the dampers lifted, but the other notes all have the dampers on. Though I believe this piano has sostenuto as well as una corde.

    I stand corrected. I really did know the correct answer. Chalk it up to my Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.
