Best Service Galaxy Vintage D
I bought this sampled instrument to run in Kontakt 5 as I needed something less demanding than Synthogy Ivory for my live performance. I use a lot of software so I was concerned about CPU, and since I already use Kontakt with several instruments, I thought adding one more would be better than trying to run Synthogy. Overall, I have been disappointed with Galaxy's Vintage D. First off, I run Kontakt with Scarbee's Rhodes, Whurly, Clavinet, and three other various instruments at around 126 samples. This gives me near zero latency and makes the setup playable. When I add the Vintage D to that mix, everything continues to work fine but Vintage D is extremely prone to Pops and glitches. It seems to occur most when I disengage the Sustain pedal. If I bump up the Buffer samples significantly, I can reduce this, but then the latency turns this into a real unenjoyable playing experience. I run this on a Macbook Pro i7 with an RME fireface. I have had no problems with other intensive plugins, so I am at a loss on why this is happening. They did release an update, but that did not fix anything for me. The other reason I don't care for this instrument is basically its lackluster sound. It has a decent low register, but the mids sound weak and the high notes sound like a toy at some points. This is all of course in comparison to Synthogy which does offer quite a lot more sampling technology so I guess I am slightly biased. Unfortunately there is nothing I can remark positively about the Vintage D. I recommend forking over the extra cash for Synthogy ivory 2 and purchasing an external FW drive to handle the samples (I get the disk too slow message running it off the internal drive occasionally). I definitely would not make the same choice again in purchasing this plugin. What I can't understand is the company NORD can make a 300mb or less acoustic piano sample for there keyboards that will blow your mind, yet a several GB sample set can sound so weak.

I do not understand that this bank Piano is also little known, and also underestimated!
I think I almost tried everything in the genre, and I found the Galaxy Vintage D the best compromise between weight / gameplay / realism / offroad / fun game
I used it in all conditions, and that on my old MacBook Pro InterCore2Duo with 4GB RAM ... which starts well ... tired but not with that bank. No cracking, no crash, even superimposed on other forums.
The sound ... it's obviously very subjective. But for me, better than Nordstage or NordPiano (more personality, more precision and shades), better than any hardware keyboard actually. Perfect playability, even inspiring.
Whether for classic intimate with headphones for jazz on stage to rock ... by repeating the piano goes everywhere, and very balanced in any mix.
I use it for 3 years and I always come back to him.

From the moment of playing Vintage D and discovering the previous opinion, I can not help but make a judgment otherwise against history-balance the negative is issued.
I would not compare with the Synthogy, I do not know but the American D tempt me much.

The Vintage D that interests us it is a very good piano.
Some found him sound a bit too compressed, perhaps justifying the aspect of "dull" in the city further notice.
It is that there are many possible setting and in this case more than enough to leave an impression of his "dull".

He still has the advantage of being a little cheaper than the competitor Synthogy and especially it does not require a key addition to the price ilok (I think).

A good piano that does not deserve to be lowered, perhaps not the best course (but there really "the" piano in this area), but it more than justifies its price.

(Note that section has a "synth" the "Warp" which may be of interest to hackers sound is very powerful.)

Samples of Steinway D for Kontakt.

The sounds are beautiful, soft, felted (hey it depends on the presets! But my favorite is "jazz club").
What I love is the natural side. This is my favorite virtual piano plugin currently (I have the big two and alicia keys. I liked them I find them useless since I have the vintage D. Good galaxy at the same time I always liked the sound of Steinways, alicia keys is a Yamaha C3, the two great I know but it's not a steinway and it looks like a yamaha too .... Kawai can be?)

what I like most is its playability. You do not need a computer to use it comfortably phew.

But what I love even more ..... This is as it sounds! The sound is not "made" it is super well balanced (neither too dull nor too bright). It really is the virtual piano that I prefer.

What I like least: I do not use the reverb built, I have not found it very enjoyable (distorts the sound a bit), at the same time I have not tried very hard to settle because the j ' reverb plugins have high quality on cubase.

That I think is flattering because I love it, but it's also because I compare it to other virtual pianos. If I compared him to a real grand piano ... it would be another story. It's samples played on a digital piano, and for this it does well the job.

Samples Piano in very very good quality. Uncompressed wav.

I put 9 because I think we can always do better in terms of sound quality but I think it's the best piano sound I have acqu RIR until this day (and I'm not ill tohttps://static.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_smile.gif

The quality is superb ...

I use it for 1 week and I am really very happy. A price not very onreux view the product's capabilities.

I tried the Concert Grand in Native Instrument duds that had me the first notes. Ms. 69euro for I expected something else. In short, I APRS test the supposedly best VST sampler to Synthogy Ivory piano: the cons by c'tait better but the sound was still too "toy" and amateur. No feeling when I played. Not deep enough.

With the Galaxy Vintage Piano D we can afford to have the sound of the piano incredibly GPs we want given the number of parameter there!

I Refer to choose without any hesitation. But I tested well the collection of piano GALAXY II. Incredibly
