I need your advice - I wanted to recreate the sound of a home piano, but not in ruins and with falling keys, not honky-tonk, but a little frustrated, but pretty in my own way (I just have this at home).
Did it work or not, what do you think?
Where did the idea come from - you watch a movie, where the main character plays an old piano, and the sound is like a steinway piano ... But I want a more natural one. Do not look for a semi-detuned piano? So I'm experimenting with the Pianoteq settings.

The easiest way to do this is to use bottom "Condition" slider. You can easily get randomized slightly(or terribly) detuned instrument.

"Condition" is just under the four pedals.

Another interesting adjustment is the string length. You can't quite turn a grand into an upright as the relative lengths of bass and treble strings are so different. But shorter makes it at least a smaller grand more likely to be found at home.

And I think it worked pretty well.

O!!!! Thanks!!!! But it’s very strange that in bass the value of unison width is> 0, although in bass the piano usually has one string for each key
