Does anybody know of a digital piano with an action close to Gould's CD318 Steinway D? I guess that means a very light action, very fast repetitions and so on.

Also, does samples exist of this instrument?

I wonder why it is not more common for digital piano makers to target specific, famous pianos in both action and samples. I guess many samples are available even of historical pianos (but maybe not CD318?). But digital actions all try to mimic some middle of the road, generic, modern grand piano action.

Ivory American Concert D was sampled from an instrument signed/played by Gould and others. Of course, this doesn’t mean much because these artists were probably paid for endorsing/signing/praising/etc.. the instrument.

The CD318 is a whole other story. I assume someone has unsuccessfully attempted to obtain permission to sample it.

Digital piano actions bear no resemblance to the Steinway D. There are a (very) few digital pianos that use a real grand piano action. The Yamaha Avant Grand is one.

Does that one have a fast, light action? You'll have to try it yourself to find out.
