    As a Linux user I’m pretty much stuck with DecentSampler, and the Family Grand is my go to piano for most projects. I have also used the Claustrophobic piano before but its a bit special for most of my use cases. I did notice that a lot of the available pianos don’t really fit so well into the mix. But the Family Grand has been the exception for me so far. I’ll give the Blüthner a try as well, always on the lookout for new instruments 🙂

    Welp, you’ll probably all be happy to hear that my problem has been solved!
    I updated Reaper and accidentally deleted DecentSampler, in doing so I discovered I must have been running an older version. Now I’m up to speed on version 1.0.12 and all the knobs and sliders on NFO library are working! Lubbly Jubbly!

    As you can maybe imagine I’m Buzzing! It’s such a lovely sounding library and I’m sure it’ll be appearing on many of my upcoming tracks.

    For a solid, affordable DAW I would also like to recommend Reaper, which costs only 60 bucks to own forever, including all upcoming updates, and can be tried out for free with no limitations. Its a very customisable DAW which I’m currently working with and learning, and I really enjoy it a lot. Its also well powerful enough to match up to any other more expensive DAW and you can use all your normal plugins in there no problem.

    Hello, my moniker (nickname) here is Krielly, and I live currently in Germany.
    I discovered PianoBook a few months back around the time DecentSampler became available for Linux. I’ve been playing guitar for about 18 years, and in the last few years started to learn how to produce music with Reaper.
    As someone without much money and also using Linux, I find the accessibility of PianoBook libraries and DecentSampler really great and helpful to have lots of new sounds and textures to play with. I hope one day also to create some sampled instruments of my own to contribute but for the moment am still struggling along to get equipment together, learn, and make some music that I like along the way.
    I’m also an independent filmmaker and will be composing the music for my next documentary.
    This is my Bandcamp site, I only have one song there so far but hopefully once I have enough fitting tracks together for an EP there will be more: https://forestrage.bandcamp.com/releases

    Thanks for your reply bo din! So perhaps it has something to do with that I’m on Linux. Maybe the DecentSampler is different, I will also check what version I’m on and if I can upgrade.
    But strange that the sliders disappeared, maybe there is really some more general bug with the code.
    What a pity! Hope it can be fixed was really stoked for this library after seeing the video about it!
