Which one of those pianos sounds best to you? (Files inside).

Piano 1: http://picosong.com/xzcz/

Piano 2: http://picosong.com/xz9g/

Piano 3: http://picosong.com/xzf2/

Piano 4
: http://picosong.com/xzfG/

Piano 5
: http://picosong.com/xzSD/




Side notes:


- I played something different on each file because i wanted to interact differently with each piano and let its character inspire me on the fly.

- Only pianos 3 and 4 use the same performed midi file because they are the same library (I used different mic settings on each).

- I will post the names later because i want an honest opinion based on sound alone. I think that stating the names in advance might possibly evoke some biased opinions/replies.


THANK YOU in advance for your opinions and thoughts!

Regards.

1 and 2 sound kinda plain and basic, nothing too fancy here.

Sample 4 sounded the best to me (3 vs 4, the "miking" in the 4 sounds better than the "miking" in 3).

5 is okay too (tone-wise) except the stereo field is kinda weird. Sounds like a stereo-widened (right channel delayed) mono piano. Might work in a band environment but doesn't sound flattering in a solo setting.

Your playing is great, like the things you do. I'd probably play the same way if I could really play the keyboard (I'm a guitarist).

Thank you very much.

Regarding Piano 5, yes i had the stereo width to +120. In that specific library, i like to set it that way when i play in order to connect more with the instrument from a player's perspective. I just updated the file with one using neutral stereo width, so check it out if you want
