Multi-mic Virtual Pianos

Multi-mic Virtual Pianos

Just curious if someone could advise me what virtual piano to invest in. I love virtual instruments that incorporate some options for mic selection and placement for added versatility. Are there any virtual grand pianos that feature multi-mic setups, and mic mixing options? Preferably close mics, room mics, mid mics, under mics as well as different mic types like ribbons, LDC's, etc. Most of the pianos I have tried or researched are fairly limited, with a pair of close mics and a built in convolution reverb.

Does anything like this exist? In case anyone asks, it would be used on a wide variety of projects. IE I'm not looking for something that simply works as a "rock" piano.

Thanks for any advice.

I really don't think there's such a virtual piano, if there's one, it'll take up close to a TB in memory!
