I\'m looking for a piano library to use for Pop/R&B ballads or \"mellow\" Jazz and want something that will sit well in the mix. I read in an older thread some comments on the subject but can\'t find that post anymore.
So far I\'ve been looking at the PMI Bosendorfer 290, The Bardstown and the Vintaudio Yamaha C7. They all sound good based on the demos I\'ve heard but I can\'t for sure tell how well they would work in my tracks. As a reference I would love a sound along the lines of A Day in the Life or Miles\' Kind of Blue. Dark and mellow. I imagine any of the above mentioned libraries can be tweaked to mellow them down a bit...
Anyone with experience with these or others in a Pop ballad context? Any advice?
The Vintaudio I may eliminate from the line up as the library is so large and demanding on the computer.
