Piano transitions 2

SYNTHOGY:
We have previously dreamed of using Synthogy, but hesitated on both price and resource utilisation.  (2008 example of Synthogy pianos)

We looked again, inspired by the videos of ‘7notemode‘,  introduction of the stand-alone American Concert D piano, and demos here by ‘InTheMix’.

Yes, it takes over 40GB, and costs $200. But we bought it and it sounds wonderful and the MacBook handles it’s resource hunger well.
In retrospect it was strange not to go directly to Synthogy – but then comparison opportunities with those other brands would have been missed .

Many parameters are tweak-able, yet around a program preset and a keyset up to 20 separately-sampled attack levels [click each image for larger view].
The wonderful thing is that no tweaking is needed to enjoy the subtleties of sound and touch right after installation – except maybe the quick calibration of key velocity.
In fact, the whole concept of the piano being a piano-forte is there on the RD600 for the first time; the keyboard is “weighted”, but never “felt” like this before.
