swindle
Lars-riegel@gmx.net, 05.10.2020
For each further update you should now pay 12 euros. If the PC breaks down, the serial number no longer works and you have to pay.

I would not buy it
Miguel Francisco, 15.05.2019
Unfortunately I bought it and being software I am forced to keep it.
Sound is not good at all. Very short samples. Not natural decay. String resonance is linked only to damper. Not working when you keep the keys down without sustain pedal. Perhaps that is why the price is so low. In any case I feel I wasted my money.

Incredible sounds. Not sure if it has continuous sustain pedal. Comprehensive interface but difficult to see. Have to rescale apps +/- screen resolution in windows 10 to see top toolbar. VST works in everything I've thrown at it; Reaper, Cantabile, Komplete. Sound library takes a while to load up on my i5 8250 inspiron 5000 laptop but cpu not overwhelmed by it. Don't spoil great sound with a mediocre soundcard; my next big buy!!

Schöne Pianosounds für den PC
Einel, 11.11.2019
Habe mir dieses VSTi für einige Aufnahmen gekauft, in denen ich ein Piano brauchte. Da ich in einer Wohnung lebe, steht ein echtes Klavier außer frage und ein Keyboard mit ordentlichem Sound kostet einfach mal das zehnfache.

Das VSTi bietet eine menge variabler grundsounds, die sich alle noch separat editieren lassen. So lassen sich beispielsweise der EQ, die verwendeten Mikrofone oder der zusätzliche Hall bearbeiten. Auch die Stereodarstellung mit den mehreren Mikrofoneinstellungen lässt sich wunderbar bearbeiten. Man kann somit wunderbar eine klassische XY abnahme eines Flügels simulieren.

Bemerkenswert ist der Detailgrad der Sampels. So wurde nicht nur die Klangerzeugung der Hämmerchen auf den Saiten abgenommen, sondern auch sämtliche Nebengeräusche, wie die Mechanik der Mämmerchen, das aufschlagen der Klavitatur oder das knarzen des Klaviers wenn die Pedale verwendet werden. Zwar besitze ich kein USB-Keyboard mit gewichteten Tasten, aber die Illusion ein echtes Piano zu spielen ist da und es macht einfach nur spaß.

Einziger Kritikpunkt ist die Ladezeit der Sampelpakete. Jedes neue Piano muss neu gelasen werden, dabei können gut und gerne einige Minuten vergehen, jenachdem wie stark der Rechner ausgelastet ist. Das ist aber am Ende nur ein kleines Manko.

Alles in allem kann ich das VSTi für diesen Preis wirklich empfehlen. Ich kenne kein PlugIn, was einen deutlichen Mehrwert bieten kann und Keyboards, die solch einen Sound bieten können, kosten gut und gerne mehr als 1.000€

[Edit]
Hatte nun Vergleichsmöglichkeiten mit anderen Plugins (NI Noire, Spitfire Soft Piano, NI Grandeur, Pianobook, etc.). Der Detailreichtum ist für den Preis gesehen immernoch sehr gut. Allerdings würde ich aktuell nicht mehr zu diesem VSTi Greifen. Es lassen sich zwar in den anderen VSTis nicht die Mikrofone ändern, aber es lassen sich andere Faktoren wie Hammergeräusche Simpethetic Resonance oder der Raum einstellen. Ich erachte diese Einstellungen als deutlich wichtiger, als die frage des Mikrofons (vor allem in Kombination mit Anderen Sample-Librarys oder VSTis). Weiterhin scheint das Klavier nicht in 440 HZ gestimmt worden zu sein. In kombination mit anderen Instrumenten, im 440HZ Pitch, klingt alles schief und krum. Leider habe ich nicht herausfinden können, wie ich das Problem lösen kann.
