how´s this sampled piano sound ?

Here´s a sound byte of a PMI Emperor , through UAD1 plugs such as Pultec Pro EQ, and Fairchild comp. , and Plate 140 reverb, as well as Cakewalk´s tape saturation plugin and Perfect space convolution reverb.... It was from a midi file that a guy gave me for passing through Gigastudio 3, so you don´t get to hear any real time convolution of the sustain pedal.... but it sounds pretty descent... well ... what´s your opinion ? Thanks, Luke

Piano sound

Sounds pretty good. Try Synthology's Ivory. It sounds incredible and be picked up for about $250.00.

Ah... it's so-so. But I'd definitely second that motion on Ivory. Do a google search and listen to those samples. Sheesh. You'd never know it was a sample.

yes ... Ivory will be my next purchase ! I think this example would have been much better if the guy had played gigastudio live with a sustain pedal. The samples sound a bit discreet here too... the attacks are too hard , maybe I should have lowered the velocity a little so softer samples would have been triggered... I wish Ivory had been around a year ago !!! ( at least , for pc !! )

hmmmmmmm I played with Ivory & think it is cool

I do prefer the Bardstown Bosendorfer though http://www.bardstownaudio.com/frames/CD-Bos.html

The guy who sampled it is very passionate -
these samples have a lot of character .. something to consider with a Grandpiano ..

One thing that is strange that I noticed about the PMI emperor is a tape hiss type sound upon triggering the sample... when the sample ends.. you hear the tape hiss end... I can´t figure it out... sample developers don´t record to tape, would they ?

DAMN! That is awesome. I'd pick that up if I could play like the dude in the clips....
