    Anyone with Steinway who is willing to render a MIDI?

    Hey all,

    I just recorded a tiny little tune with my Casio digital piano and Steinberg The Grand 2 but I am very curious how it'd sound with the Steinway. I know that such a direct conversion probably won't show the best of the Steinway but it would be incredibly much appreciated!

    The first version is out of the box, no processing of any kind.

    This second version is also out of the box no processing of any kind but left hand velocities lowered.

    Both versions use the Stage Side perspective.

    Thanks a lot! Believe it or not but this piece was 'piano' on the Grand, guess dynamics translate quite a bit different. Do you know if there's a way in the grand to change velocity response to fit the digital piano?

    I recorded this earlier, but Speedy Dan beat me to the
    punch, posting... lol!

    However, not to go to waste -- here's a version, straight
    from the MIDI; but done with the Classic perspective:

    Best,

    You are correct, velocities of piano midi files will never be correct for any sampled piano except for the one that was heard while playing. Velocities will always need to be tweaked to accommodate the programming of the samples and the "engine" that is delivering the sound, regardless of the sampled piano.

    When you say "this piece was piano on the grand"
    do you mean softly?

    If so, here is another version, same player position, but with the GUI's velocity curve lowered a notch.

    Here also is a quick little movie showing the GUI's velocity curve.

    David, thanks for helping out too
