I'm convinced that 99% of people listening can't tell the difference about whether the instrument is real or not,
Yes, but 99% are real (sampled), and maybe 1% aren't (modeled). ;)

The real question is perhaps more appropriately how well sampled, and if they are played by a real piano player? :lol:

Scripts in some samplers probably make sure there are no 16 fingered players,lol, or that trumpets don't play chords.

I think that what the issue is is that even though they have taken a most beautiful audio picture of a most beautiful note in an impeccable environment with fantastic mics, they are currently unable to know what other notes are being played and how those notes will react with one another. With a limitless number of things that could happen on a piano, how is a VST supposed to account for all that is possible? I can't imagine how. That is what I am missing with plug ins...

maybe bump up the volume a bit on the master - pretty low vol recording.,


sound wise it's captured what a piano sounds like - and great example for all the midi piano players

Hi SubRivers.

thanks for your comment. I neglected to send these through to my mastering studio, just because of financial reasons. this is a $250 listing that I am gambling on, and I didn't think that spending $80 on mastering each of my 3 submissions made sense. Do you use a particular mastering plug in?

Hi Jesse,
Did you by any chance see this recent post about mastering online?
There are some free options that might be worth exploring if that's the way you want to go.

Sounds great! Now, you might want to start saving for a pair of really fast preamps and a really nice compressor. Your piano sounds lovely, but it doesn't sound like the references. I'm sure you'll find lots of great recipes as you get to know your new mikes.
