  • Characterful Toy Piano

    This you piano has alot of character as most do. Its well recorded and well balanced. I dont find the highs to be too piercing. Its also not too squeaky like other toy pianos so its good to have both in case you want one or the other. It would be nice to have one more dynamic layer but its fairly dynamic. The GUI is really well designed and looks cool but it would be useful to be able to control the volume of the release triggers because theyre very loud. but all in all this is really good

  • Cute toy piano, easy to play

    Very lovely and cute sounded toy piano! I thought it would have been even better if more key range was covered. Nice to play with!

  • Best toy piano library here...

    Great playability and well-recorded sound. Not much to complain about with this one, other than the fact that they're aren't more like it. If you're looking for a toy piano then this is the way to go. Great work!

  • Clearly wins the award for best GUI graphics!

    The wallpaper for this instrument clearly wins the award for the most artistic graphics. It's lovely. I'd really love to have the option to decrease the volume of the release triggers in the GUI. The jump to the highest velocity layer is kind of stark. I wish there was a smoother transition. The sound is really well recorded and edited, though. Very nicely done!

  • Very nice playability

    This is another toy piano for your library that sounds pretty good. The sampling job is good with just a little noise if your playing involves more notes at the same time. The three round robins along with the two velocity layers make it nice to play. To reach the top velocity layer though you need to push really hard, but the sound that comes from it is real good. Nothing beats the fantastic illustration for the background! It would be nice though to have some more options inside it.
