Purchased, but as a owner of the original Acoustic Grand Pianos Collection, I would have like some more mic perspectives for the original pianos of this old bundle.

Anyway I'm happy about the new Key Suite.

Do the acoustic pianos (Model D, Italian 278, Japanese C7 & Erard Baby Grand) feel/respond or sound different from the original UVI Piano Collection? Also, is it worth it for the Hybrid Custom Grand and additional upright pianos? I see they have multi-mics.

How does it compare to Keyscape? That seems to be the obvious contender...

The acoustic pianos from the previous collection sound the same.

They don't have multi-mics. Only the new ones.

So no improvements on the old ones on this side. I think that for instance the FAZIOLI sounds a bit dark and a little muddy. Which could have been improved with another set of mics or perspective.

Thanks for your reply. Purchased the upgrade yesterday and am very happy. Even though they are still single mic perspectives, the older UVI Grand Pianos have been improved in the Keysuite Colllection sound & response-wise which I'm happy about, plus there's 15 new instruments to explore.
