just got the Steinway professional...what a piano!
I rendered some of my files and...it sounds right out of the box like Pletnev at Carnagie Hall!....(oops, Troy Music Hall...).
Hovewer there is something in the behaviour of it that caught my ears and sounds to me somehow strange. Activating the sustain resonance (realtime! which is one of the big reason why i bought the library) i hear a sort of blow when using the pedal for legato; that is, play a note, hold the pedal down, play the second one and quickly release the pedal for a short time. under some conditions i do hear that sort of blow when releasing the pedal...
I have a midi file to explain this and a pic of a clear example (as well as the corresponding mp3..) but i cannot upload them (or i don't know how to do it...)
It is more audible in the underlid and stage perspectives and if you increase the sus resonance to higher values (try with 60).
I thought in a first instance that was something in my setup and i wrote to garritan support address but then i realized that those "blows" are also clear in the official demos, especially in Mendelssohn.
I start now thinking that probably it's just me and it is a realistic effect of the piano:the strings of non played notes start vibrating and releasing the pedal for a short time stops their vibration producing the sound. The problem is that now that i noticed it it's terrible because i hear it stronger and when i play the Steinway my ears are there to listen to that sound...
Any opinions about this?
