Sounds really good plus the added stuff is great.

But, considering it's going to be a part of Komplete someday it's just not something I'd consider buying.

NOIRE vs Ravenscroft vs Keyscape.

I did not use the same midi file, instead, i wanted to improvise on each one separately and let it guide me as i play.

- NOIRE default preset: 0:00
- Ravenscroft: 4:16
- Keyscape: 8:31
- NOIRE custom preset: 12:23

Like both Noire pianos and the Ravenscroft. Honestly the Keyscape one doesn't do much for me. Great playing!

The Keyscape demo does sound thin and with an unnaturally quick decay, which is different than the sound I've come to know from that library, though I tend to gravitate toward fuller sound and wouldn't set it up this way.

Keyscape deserves a longer improv than the one i did to give it justice, in order to showcase the rich mid registers especially during jazzy runs. With that said, i didn't tweak or change anything in the settings, it's the default LA Custom C7 patch, first one on the list, unchanged.

It actually sounded much louder/fuller than the others, i had to turn down the volume in the GUI settings from +1 to 0 and also decided NOT to slap a maximizer on it (contrary to what i did with the other pianos in the video). That's how dominant it was compared to the others.

A short improv with both Pure & Felt presets.





3 Pure Presets (Pop Grand, In Concert & Extra Body)

These two instruments sound incredible and inspire creativity. The best virtual piano purchase I have ever made, and I didn't have to buy a new/faster computer to run it. The only downside is I'm getting no sleep. Spectacular job bringing this about. High praises for all involved.

Thanks a lot. Yes, it's a great instrument for sure.

Keyscape has less sustain because it's got less reverb than the others... But it sounds great to me ears, just more dry

Yes, it's a lovely piano, but I wouldn't buy it just for the piano samples. There are many good alternatives in that category. For me Keyscape is great for everything else... .

I was referring to this examples. The keyscape had way less reverb than the other pianos. The sustain you might be hearing is due to that, I suspect.

I actually bought it for everything but the pianos. Not knocking them -- they're very good -- but the gold in Keyscape is in the other instruments. The electric pianos, in particular, are killer. And that Harmochord is my go-to accordion.

Hi,

I just purchase NI NOIRE grand piano, I also own the Garritan CFX but NOIRE sounds somewhat richer and warmer.

I've a question:

Is there a way to re-save only the 'Noire Pure' version as I won't use the `'Noire FELT'` version, I want to save disk space since I am only concerned by the clean version. Any idea please? Thanks!
