absolut top preis/leistungs-verhältnis

UweJ, 12.01.2010
Ich hab lange gezögert und mir zig piano libraries zu gemüte geführt. Einige klingen gut, aber das spielgefühl/dynamikverhalten ist eher bescheiden, andere klingen zu "dünn" und bei einigen stimmt alles, nur passten sie nicht in mein budget.

Aufgrund der massiven preissenkung und eigentlich nur positiven erfahrungsberichten, hab ich mich dann für galaxy II entschieden. die Entscheidung war richtig! Der Klang ist sehr gut und die Möglichkeiten zur klang- und dynamikeditierung enorm. Das Spielgefühl hat auf Anhieb gepasst. Wer dennoch Probleme hat, kann alles nach Belieben seinen Spielgewohnheiten und seiner Tastatur anpassen.

Überhaupt lässt sich absolut alles an- und abschalten, editieren und speichern. Für jedes Instrument gibt es auch bereits vorgefertigte, individuell abgestimmte, presets für verschiedene Anwendungsbereiche. Beispiel: Ein solo-piano muss anders klingen, als ein pianosound der sich harmonisch in den mix mit anderen instrumenten einbetten lassen soll. einfach das entsprechende preset wählen und man hat sofort eine gute Grundlage für die weitere Arbeit in der DAW. klasse!

Sehr praktisch finde ich auch, dass man die Instrumente in verschiedenen "sample-ausbaustufen" laden kann. So läd man nur das, was man wirklich braucht und spart resourcen. Den resourcen-hunger würde ich (im vergleich zu anderen piano VST) im mittleren bis oberen drittel ansiedeln. Also keine übertriebene Vollauslasung, aber beim zeitgleichen Betrieb anderer resourcenfressender VST in der DAW wird es eng.

Ein netter bonus sind auch die "special sounds", die eigentlich nix mit einer anspruchsvollen piano-library zu tun haben. wer ohnehin mit DAW und vielen VST plugins arbeitet kann darauf verzichten. Wer galaxy II allerdings als standalone-version nutzt, quasi als reine digitalpiano-alternative, bekommt hier noch zig synth-sounds, pads, streicher, etc. dazu. Übrigens, nach der Installation am besten gleich das update auf der galaxy-website ziehen.

Fazit: absolute Kaufempfehlung. Das aktuelle Preis/Leistungsverhältnis ist unschlagbar.

nachtrag:
meine bewertung bezog sich auf die preisgesenkte version von 119,- eur. mittlerweile (april 2010) gibt es die neue optimierte kontakt4 version, welche wieder zum vollen preis angeboten wird.

Mein bester Flügelsound

Thomas108, 16.06.2010
Ich hab sofort zugegriffen, als Galaxy II billiger wurde. - Und wurde nicht enttäuscht! - gute Samples, herrliche Resonanzgeräusche, Pedalgeräusche - für den, der's braucht, Deckel auf, Kompressor rein, Hall etwas weniger, Deckel zu. Fertig.

Alles ist intuitiv bedienbar, und sehr flexibel einstellbar. Mit einem "Wärmeregler" kann man sich auch mit etwas kühler klingenderen Lautsprechern einen "richtigen Flügel" ins Wohnzimmer zaubern.

Gerne nehme ich auch im Verbund mit anderen Instrumenten den Stereobreitenregler (was für ein Wort?!) ziemlich zurück Richtung Mono. Ein drehen auf 0 (Mono) bringt allerdings unangenehme, nicht tragbare Phasenverschiebungen.

Der Kompressor arbeitet sehr angenehm, rauschfrei und warm bis druckvoll, 2 regelbare Halltypen sind ausreichend und angenehm. Der Konzerthall kann bei stärkerer Einstellung in Verbindung mit dem Publikumsmodus (ob das Piano von Seite des Pianisten oder aus dem Publikum gehört wird) auch sehr gut für versch. Filmszenarien dienen.

Ich geh jetzt noch ein bischen Klavier spielen...
