    Check out our \"Rain Piano\". It should be perfect for this!

    Warren Trachtman is a ragtime enthusiast. His Steinway for Giga is supposed to be great for this:


    OR, check out the \"Malmsjö Acoustic Grand\":

    There is a detuned \"bar room saloon\" articulation patch on the Giga version of the Bardstown Bosendorfer Imperial.

    Listen to the demo of the Clinton upright at vintaudio.com. Nice stuff.

    Good ragtime piano sample library?

    Hi Gang.

    I will soon be starting work on a project that requires a Scott Joplin-type score. Lots of piano rags and solo clarinet. While I have some lovely piano libraries, they all sound too good for this sort of thing.

    There is a nice preset on my Roland XP called \"Piano Thang\" that comes close to what I am looking for. The only thing is that it sounds so painfully MIDI to my ears.

    I am looking for a somewhat de-tuned, rattle-filled piano sample that sounds like an old upright you might find playing along with a silent movie. I\'ve played around with some of the prepared piano libraries out there, but they seem to far on the opposite extreme.

    Can anyone recommend a good \"honky-tonk\" or player-piano library?

    Thank you so much for your advice!
