An excellent piano. It's not a Steinway D (but Estonia) but it is so well sampled it's worth a visit. Ditto for his little sister the "White Sister" (only difference is the same as the Great White but with a more distant miking, so more room).
Possible shades are extra (with 16 layers): from ppp to fff the sweetest and strongest. To fully exploit this dynamic, it is better to have a good master keyboard, adjusting its response in order to reach the final velocity when tappe a nag because it corresponds, on an acoustic piano, this brilliance of tone obtained when the piano is hammered.
The sound is very versatile (jazz, rock, pop ...) and is very dry (so we can apply any reverb or any FX no surprises).

Herve C's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I downloaded from the site of Sampletekk (option "Direct Download") the samples. I use Kontact format, but there are also Gigastudio and Halion. With ADSL, in one evening, I downloaded all the samples at a very attractive price (60 euros following the 50% reduction, enjoy!). Note that the samples are not protected by software, which is rare enough to be reported. At this price, the more reason to buy.
I love the sound of the piano. It is both bright and warm, not metallic or dull. Listen to the demos in sampletekk, it's really pretty. Great character.
I play mostly jazz, and it's going very well. I think it is also suitable for pop, and even classical.
I play for 2 days and love it. I tried the "Big 2" Steinberg, but the sounds are a little "doctored" next to this one, and they are much more dull. Matter of taste.
Most importantly, value for money is excellent. I hesitated to buy "Akoustik Piano", but in sampletekk for 100 euros, I had "White Large" + "Black Grand" + "Vertikal" (upright). In two evenings, my three pianos were downloaded!
