I have recorded the same piece on the six main piano voices of the Yamaha P515.

Some of them are similar to each other, some less. Some feel easy to play, while with others I had to force myself to keep going smile
I intentionally re-recorded for each voice (as opposed to post editing, which is possible), because my playing is affected very much by what I hear.

Anyway, here's the recording:
P515 recording

I'll keep my opinions to myself for now smile

The better sounding one is the CFX main patch. There are some variants that are very nice on some octaves, but then I feel they are a little strange on other octaves. The main patch is the most balanced on all the keyboard range. But I would use a little more reverb... That CFX is so dry to my ears...

You can play on a single piano sound and use the MIDI TO AUDIO function, it "renders" the sound using the current voice selected, this can help decrease any minute differences while you're playing. Here's a .wav from my highly modified Bosendorfer sound: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PKzsIpQ9OlsVHsBUlpU1M9ihUeebr7Ge/view?usp=sharing I recommend using a file sharing service with no compression to prevent quality loss while sharing your audio, you are certainly a good player. Google drive doesn't compress and that's why I chose it. My playing is a bit inconsistent and the tempo changes randomly but you can reallly change the sound of the Bosendorfer to fit a piece.

joemama42O thanks, I've experienced with the MIDI TO AUDIO before and opted not to use it here (see my first post).
I really like the sample you've uploaded! I barely recognized the Bosendorfer underneath. Great bass and dynamic range. Please consider sharing the settings with us smile

Nice playing Ido! Look at the similarity between the Bose and warm grand. Also Jazz piano is nice and similar, dynamic. Oscar Peterson featured the Bose. I like particularly the studio grand apart from when you press on hard. Seems little to curtail that.

Well played Ido! Inspiring.

I am personally happy that excellent players like you are demonstrating how good the Bosendorfer sound really is, on Yamaha's latest models.

Thanks for sharing!

peterws, mmathew thank you so much guys! Very kind of you!

peterws indeed the warm grand feels like it's in the same family as the Bosendorfer, I noticed that after you had commented about it here some time ago smile

I also agree with magicpiano about the CFX being the most balanced, at least with the default settings. It feels 'in sync' with the action.
