Best-service Galaxy 2 piano software
 
Hi you all,

I am at the point to buy some good and decent piano software.
First my opinion was that there could not anything beat Ivory .
But that was before I heard the new follow up Galaxy Steinway 5.1.
I listened to the the samples of this new Galaxy 2 and since then I walk arrount with the doubt wheter to buy the Ivory or the Galaxy 2 piano.
In my opinion the sound of Galaxy 2 has got some more warmth then the Ivory piano.
Allthough this is the new version perhaps someone is using it allready.

Garritan has been working with Steinway on an authorized soft instrument. It's long overdue, but hopefully will appear soon. Garritan Orchestral Libraries HOME Page

Quit interesting if it will works as a full stand alone plug-in and not only on kontact player
I can mail them for details

So anyone else that has allready heard the sounds and can judge about the quality.
The Galaxy 2 has got the WARP function also.
In my opinion you can better have a few sounds from top quality rather then having a effect engine also.
Ivory is consentrating on the four piano's
But the sounds of Galaxy 2 are clear, warm and detailed so that is why I don't know what to buy.

I looked at the website but I couldn't get the trailers to load. It doesn't appear that they have a trial or demo software yet which may slow down their success. Over the years I've found a handful of VST instruments that just don't run in my DAW, and I certainly would never buy any software unless it's proven to work for me.

But....I do plan to check back on the galaxy stuff soon as I'm looking for a top notch piano VSTi.
