Having listened to the demo on the tweet, I think bit more could be done with note groups to try eliminate the ‘ring out’ that you talk about with the scripting. With the release open it’s quite noticeable and detracts from the realism to me.
Its never anything that’s affected me or troubled me in playing/programming. Like many pianos, it’s the idiosyncrasies that defines it’s character.
That said, I brought into the LABS range before the rebrand when it was a range of small Kontakt Libraries so could open it up and tweak if I ever need to.
It you’re looking for something similar but with more control, Spitfire took the Yamaha U3 from LABS Soft Piano and re-recorded it at AIR Lyndhurst, packaging it up in the Originals range. It’s a bargain, Look it up. Originals: Cinematic Soft Piano.
I spent far too much of my time last night awake trying to quantify my feelings on this.
At first I was frustrated, like the majority, but the more I considered it all I realised my frustrations were really facing inward, with myself.
As I completed this I thought I’d crafted something unique, that was well produced, responded to the brief whilst carrying itself as a legitimate piece of work. I thought this would be the catalyst for personal progress but really I’ve come to realise I am just a grain of sand on the outer realm of a gigantic desert in a saharan storm.
It’s a wildly interesting learning process, back to the drawing board.
Didn’t stand a chance in that oceanic volume of compositions but I do have to admit, like a lot of people I’m feeling a little despondent after all that. A whimsical entry from a guy who works in Hollywood does leave me feeling a little hoodwinked.
It’ll be really interesting to know the final figure of submitted/uploaded entries.
Thinking about it, Pianobook had 350+ submissions for the Piannoday piece, Spitfire has a much bigger profile and social reach, possibly 10x that of PB, so I wouldnt be surprised if the number of submissions is somwhere in the thousands.

I’ve also jumped in on this and spent more time than I’d care to admit on it!
Like The Ansion, I was overwhelmed when I saw the sheer amount of uploads there on youtube, sifting through them all is going to be an unenviable task.
Also frustratingly, like Keith, for some reason despite the #’s Youtube hasn’t cached my upload so it doesn’t turn up in search results so I guess it’s all been in vain, especially with the volume of other uploads.
Some really interesting compositions up here, it’s fascinating listening to how everyone interprets the visual elements into their own idea.
I’ve learnt a lot in doing this but most important for me has been mix translation. Learning how different it can sound on studio monitors to headphones, through to TV, laptop and phone, along with the subtle differences Youtube’s compression can make to it, there have been quite a few revisions haha
