I'm looking for a sampled Steinway grand piano for a Jazz setup. I really like Garritan Steinw., QL Pianos and Synthogy Ivory. But those pianos are all recorded in big spaces. I would like to have the same recorded in a smaller room with under lid, close and distant mikes. Like the room of fxpansion BFD Jazz and Funk. That sounds so intemate.
What is the problem again with sampled pianos libraries recorded in anechoic rooms? VSL did this for all instruments in their silent stage. I would be more flexible.
If I use the Garritan under lid version I can still hear the hall in the background, right? I used Altiverb to get another room feeling but of course this cannot work because of the recorded reverb.
What would you advise me?
To Mr. Garritan: Is there a Steinway planned recorded in a smaller, more intemate room?
