I think Garritan CFX is a wonderfully sampled instrument, but the sound of the CFX itself is not exactly what I'm after.

What I wish for is that Garritan would sample a good sized Bõsendorfer, and/or a Blüthner, in a similar way to how they treated the CFX. I would buy either of these in a heartbeat.

While we're at it, does anyone else wish for something that does not yet exist?

AvantGrand action in a slab without speakers. It would be more like a coffin than a slab, but I digress...

Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

A MIDI controller with AG or NV grand action for less than $4K. I do not care about size or form factor, I just don't want to pay for something I do not need (amplifiers, speakers, haedphone amp, WiFi, BT, etc.). Just a power button and usb midi out.

I don't have it - but I have been eyeing it for a while now.

The margin of this post is too narrow to detail it.

It is undoubtedly a fine instrument. It is, however, also about five times the price of the Garritan CFX Lite (which I've got) - and only because it is currently on sale (or maybe permanently reduced in price), previously it seems to have been about 8 times the price of the CFX Lite. I think Garritan is doing something very right. I wish for VSL to get that same thing very right. smile

Perhaps ask CB (@Cybergene) how he set it up for his 'Cybrid' piano. Well, I think he used the Garritan CFX and to me it sounded really good - and as someone who does not like the sound of Yamaha pianos in general and the CFX in particular that was an eye-opener (well, ear-opener.)

I just want the ability to upgrade my NV10's sound generation/UI components. The action and cabinet (and I suppose speakers, which I don't really care about) - what I suspect constitutes the vast majority of the instrument's material cost - will never be outdated, but the brain already is.

Okay, so yesterday I wished for a sampled Bõsendorfer VI, and out of the blue today one arrives.

To the powers in the great beyond, ruling such matters:

Thank you for delivering a Bõsendorfer virtual instrument! I truly appreciate the effort. However, and it pains me much having to do so, I have to point out that there has been a misunderstanding, or a break in the communication, because I specifically called for a "Garritan" Bõsendorfer. Not a VSL!

Nonetheless, I salute you for your timing. smile

P515 has all of that except for "light-weight" and amazing speakers.


Finally bought the P515
