I've cleared enough storage space on my Dexibell P3 in order to have both the Platinum USA and Platinum Italian Piano loaded at the same time.

1. One thing I've noticed on the platinum sounds is that, starting at the highest F# on the keyboard and going up from there, there suddenly is a fairly long sustain to the tone (without holding down the sustain pedal). Are others finding this? And is this normal behavior?

2. My second question is seeking opinions: Which of the 4 available Platinum sounds do you feel is best (USA, German, Japanese or Italian) for playing Great American Songbook/Jazz Standards, such as "Misty", "Stardust", "Georgia on My Mind", etc?

Thanks!

That's how an acoustic piano works.

The highest strings are missing dampers. Maybe because there's really no room for them, but they are not really needed either.

The exact transition point may vary from piano to piano.

From what I've read and heard is that the higher notes on a real piano are suppose to sustain longer , and to the best overall piano sound I picked the Japanese grand because it has more color to it which I can take out using the filter wheel or eq . I listened to the other platinum samples but they all seem suited for one musical sound and I think the Japanese grand does them all well .
