I recently bought the Garritan Steinway and have been very happy with it. I really like the natural ambience of the different perspectives....But, like all digital pianists in search of the perfect chord I am itchy to add a different sound. I am greatly impressed with the sound of the Bluthner given my jazz-influenced style for certain stuff i putz around with.
I have been listening to samples on both the Galaxy II site and PAV's BDMO site. Anybody have any thoughts relative to both? The Galaxy is a great value considering I could be getting a Bosendorfer sample also (for not much more money), but i wonder if the BDMO is more user friendly and controllable and has better support. The support comment if very important to me.... (Gary Garritan has been very responsive and helpful on questions during set-up).
Both pianos sound very nice on their respective websites, but demos on the website are sometimes misleading and comments from actual users can really be helpful... thanks in advance for any thoughts!
