How do you rate the pianos you have? I only have Vintage D and have no plans to purchase any other. I guess they might get addictive cause they're pretty cheap once you have a good PC.

With all those software pianos to choose from, what are your favorites, and where specifically does the Imperfect Fazioli rank (and are you running it through Kontakt)?

I tend to play the internal AP voices on the Avantgrand N2 and the RD-700NX. But that is primarily to maximize my too-limited practice time. I've also been using Pianoteq 4 more lately to practice classical pieces -- it's "playable" and easy to get up and running. When I get the pieces I'm working on in a more polished state, I plan to turn back to the samplers.

EWQL pianos runs on Play 3.037 software,fixed sustain note bugs and other problems of previous versions of Play,(drop out,clips and cpu load),minimum requirement according to my experience for two and three mic and full patches 8GB of Ram.
Ivory II Italian Grand runs on Ivory Cantabile x64, the other virtual pianos run on Kontakt 5 full.

For authenticity my preferences are:

1)EWQL pianos(two mic minimum)
2)Vintage D and Vienna Grand Galaxy piano K4
3)Steinway B from East West Colossus

Ivory II Italian Grand sounds sterile and metalic overtones

For Playability:

1)Vintage D and Galaxy Pianos
2)EWQL pianos with two mic minimum
3)Academic Grand and Steinway B from Colossus

Fazioli Concert Grand Complete runs on Kontakt 5 with drop out on sympathic resonance

I hope that it answer your questions!!!

Thanks
