Imperfect Samples Steinway tuning problem

I know the samples are supposed to be "imperfect" but the over all average tuning is flat for me on Kontakt 5. I checked with Peterson and Sonic Research tuners. If I raise the global tuning to A 441.70 it fixes it but it seems I shouldn't have to do this. I emailed the company but after reading the Mone Zone thread I'm not counting on a answer from them. Has anyone had this issue and found a fix?

This was a bug in some relatively newer version of kontakt 5 that messed up the tuning of a couple of libraries, namely, sample modelling libraries. I read this thread a couple of months ago on another forum and I will try to find it and link it if I can. But I think in the newest version, NI fixed this issue already (Yes it was an NI bug in that case).
What kontakt version do you have? I think 5.2 was the culprit or maybe 5.3 (earlier releases). Later on, it got fixed if i remember it correctly.

It´s too flat even in Logics ESX24, so it might be a feature... I don´t use this piano anymore, but when I did I used to tuned it up by 7 cents...

Thanks for the replies! I'm running Kontakt 5.4. Has anyone else plugged in a tuner and checked this? I guess I won't take things for granted anymore and check the tuning on every VSTi before a session.
