|To any other Wavosaur users looking for a great piano sound:
I bought two sampled pianos recently - one acoustic, one electric - and I'm really pleased with them, so I wanted to recommend 'em.
Imperfect Samples' http://www.imperfectsamples.com/ Braunschweig Piano is an upright for Kontakt or exs24.
It's a gem, frankly: it has a very distinctive dark tone, and more charm and character than any other sampled upright I've ever heard.
Acoustic Samples http://www.acousticsamples.net E-Pian (Kontakt/sfz) is a 1972 electric piano recorded though a valve pre.
And it's got The Funk, big time I've had it for less than 48 hours but I've spent most of that time playing with it...
The thing I love about them is they sound real - they sound like the kind of instruments you find in studios, rehearsal rooms, venues. Both of them have bags of personality, both of them have a definite "voice" of their own, and both of them are a joy to play.
Anyway, check 'em out. I'm off to tinkle the ivories some more
