Every time I've looked in Pianoteq (often because it has it's rabid supporters online, much like Acustica), I've never been particularly sold on it.

I expect I'll have another look at it, and see whether I draw the same conclusions again... :lol:

On that note - Polish studios are actually a bargain these days... if u dare go :D

Yep, that's where 'uncanny valley' is for me. There's a sort of resonant 'flatline' in the lower mids that reminds me of a Yamaha CP70, with its short bass strings. Whatever it is you will spend hours trying to 'fix' it and... you won't.

Fun, yeah it kinda reminded my more of an electronic sound that what I associate with a piano... but then until a couple days ago I'd never really tried to play one so I have no real idea on what to associate with the piano! :D

I'm also thinking that it may seems to depend on how I play - which can be a good thing - but I have not enough experience to tell yet.

Had no idea that the fandom was like Acustica's, then I'd start to be terrified!

But cool to know they make special offers.

That's for six pianos. They start at €165. :thumbup:
