Back OT (if that's possible at this juncture), I think Noire is my new favorite VST in playability, sound, and flexibility. The only drawback is that you only have close mic positions, but for most people playing solo piano, that's perfect.

Good point Deltajockey. It is great we have all these choices
Growing up, only had my upright piano and that was it to practice on. My teacher came to the house.


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.

Nice to see you posting. I missed your insight. You always seemed to give a thoughtful answer 😀

Absolutely correct.

I deal with people all the time who think they want realism - often that turns out not to be the case!

It's funny how it works. People listen to a movie soundtrack and recognize a certain piano sample, which has been used to produce that. Then they buy the same sample library and are amazed, how "realistic" it reproduces "[Brand] [Model]", while they just react positively to sample-exact reproduction of something they heard and enjoyed before.

My Yamaha P-515 digital piano has a really bright, but pretty unrealistic "Studio Grand" sample, which I liked for some reason. One day when I was playing along to some of my favorite songs, I heard beating frequencies, because they used the exact same sample, which was slightly out of tune with my own digital piano, but similar enough to create beats. I solved by switching to a different voice, but I realized what was the reason for me liking that certain voice.

We simply prefer what is already familiar to us.
What do you mean by "beating"? What does it sound like?

They told him don’t you ever come around here
Don’t want to see your face, you better disappear
…so beat it, just beat it…..

Just beat it, beat it,….
No one wants to be defeated
Showin’ how funky and strong is your fight
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right

Just beat it (beating) beat it……..



If you’d paid a little attention, it would’ve been clear that this song defines us verbatim (no one wants to beat it), and I feel that sometimes it’s fine to beat it, and it’s not always necessary to ‘be showin’ how funky and strong is your fight’ (“Pianoteq sucks”) because sometimes it doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right………

Classic millennial never paying attention to the details and swiftly jumping to conclusions, but you’re right, I’m old! grin

Now that the felt piano is done, perhaps they should work on a John Cage piano?
