It uses an iLok license that you can download.

I caved lol.


It’s amazing though.

Connection to the piano is beautiful. Sound is pretty good.

I’m loving this modern U

Very impressed with vi labs.

It pairs very nicely with the rm3 action from my korg D1

Hello,

@Mta88, Well done and nice recordings!

Yes, it is lovely and still my one and only piano library I happily play every day.

Perhaps you already found your favorite settings, otherwise, on request of another member I wrote my favorite Modern U configuration earlier in this thread:

Cheers and the happiest playing,

Listening to your nice playing, I wonder how far is that sound for the real one you could get from a U3, which is the sampled piano. I have an older U3H and still what I hear when playing Modern U is so close that, for my probably uneducated ears and beginner level playing, is really close to the real thing. Wonderful technology!

Thanks guys

Was fiddling some more today and made some other recordings

I’m very much pleasantly surprised by this vst.

Playability is on point .
Sound is very realistic
And I know a lot of folks aren’t fans of pianoteq here
There is something in the background, probably sympathetic resonance coupled with how all the strings interact with each other to create a unique sound for each song played .

That sort of singing background tone I’m not even sure what the heck I can do to put it into words

It’s often absent with sampled sounds
For whatever reason I’m detecting it in this particular vst
Not entirely sure what they did to capture that

But good job from VILabs

Anyways do enjoy guys
Cheers

@HZPiano

Hey this is useful thanks

I used mostly the stock settings so far

I honestly can’t remember which mics I used

Think it was close , player and room.

Noticing that close and room alone with the reverb sounds pretty good though.

Trying to spend less time fiddling and more time playing with this one. It really is remarkable

Hello,

@Mta88, You're welcome 🙂.

Yes, no fiddling all playing is a great intention. After these settings had crystallized, I now have my PC set up so that I only need the power buttons on the piano, amplifiers and PC to play. No screen, no keyboard, no mouse. And I never look back at adjusting anything anymore.

Love it.

And I know what you mean by that singing background. It is lovely. My brother on a recent visit immediately spotted (and loved) it as well.

Cheers and happy playing,

HZ
