PianoTeq already has that Voice.

Any wagers when one of the Big Boys will include that in a new offering?

That is one fun Voice to play. I only wished it went at least a çouple octaves more.

Oh. Then we could discuss the minutia if how that Voice was recorded note by note from a real Michelsonne Grand Toy Piano.

But, what a fun Voice to use.

Yann Tiersen has been using a Toy Piano (Korg?) in his music quite effectively, studio and on tour, for the last 10+ years. As an aside he now tours with a V-Piano too.

The new CA97/CA67 feature this secret instrument as a hidden 'Easter Egg'. However, for the sake of marketing clarity, I should point out that this voice does not employ 88-key sampling.

Kind regards,
