Best Piano Instrument or Sample set for Jazz/Nordic Jazz
Hello All -
I've been using the Post Bosendorfer for many years now, and it's been fine for my needs. Recently, I've begun working on an album which is going to consist of both real and virtual instruments in a setting similar to Weather Report meets ECM jazz meets Patrick O'Hearn type atmospheric stuff. Real instruments will include acoustic and electric guitars, cymbals and percussion, melodica, bass clarinet, glock, fretless and acoustic bass, and a few other odds and ends. For several reasons, I won't be able to record real piano, and I'm looking for a virtual piano that will be able to sit nicely in the type of musical setting I've described, function well occasionally as a melody or solo instrument, and give me some flexibility with virtual mic positioning and/or room sound. I don't need a lot of different pianos necessarily, just one or possibly two that sound really good and hopefully exceptionally real.
