  • Wonky for sure

    This is a piano with no dynamics and little to no sustain. Some sample tails have weirld clicks on them, and in general it is noisy. It is indeed wonky though since some pitches are off, so it might be good for your project.

  • Loads of character, but very short notes

    This piano has lots and lots of character, but sadly, the samples of each note are all quite short, so that it's not possible to sustain any notes past about 2.5 seconds. That might seem like enough, but if you use the pedal at all, you start to discover very quickly that it really isn't. Notes cut out so quickly, even with the pedal down that it's really unworkable. The mic position leaves something to be desired as well. It sounds somewhat distant, and it sounds like it might have been sampled in mono. I could be wrong. Each individual note was sampled, but there's only one dynamic layer per note. Velocity control of dynamics was implemented, but it's set up so that it's not particularly responsive, so you may want to tweak that if you decide to use this instrument.

  • Not for me

    Im probably not the right person to review this because i personally dont like these thin honky sounding pianos. They do have an interesting character but they would never work for me in scoring and emotional music. Warmth is one of the most important qualities for me in my pianos and this just doesn't satisfy that for me. I hope people that like these kinds of pianos will give this a try though.

  • Wonky or Honky?

    Not convinced I'd use this due to the honky sound that isn't really honky enough. Just sounds like an old piano with nothing special going for it sadly.
