. . to the main piano sound.

Just a thought. Has this already been achieved? It would involve separating the sources, which would be easy enough by the producers, I'd think.

Maybe some VSTs incorporate it in their PRO versions. Could be nice . . . . or maybe it wouldn't make much difference. I s'pose I could put the piano in a big room, with a high roof if I had one. smile

Please explain. Not sure what you mean.

You know there are dedicated resonance convolution engines, like East West Spaces II that simulate the resonance of a custom modelled room. None of those do what you are thinking of?

Ivory II pianos and Galaxy pianos have options to simulate the resonances of different rooms (by using convolution reverb algorithms). Pianoteq does that too. I think most of the big VSTs have something like that.

Maybe; I suppose you could channel them thro' a separate system positioned Lord knows where, and gauge their effectiveness this way. But this would involve an additional product. I was thinking more built-in.
Not sure if yamaha did this in their clp200 series stuff some years ago.

Yes, some VSTs have the ability to multi channel playback through different speakers. It requires support of sound interface and DAW. Then you can assign room reverb voice recorded by far field mics to surround channel and speakers.
This can improve the sense of reality and sound separation.

Digital and analog reverb effects are widely available on keyboards, DAWs, VSTs, amps, mixers, and separate hardware units.


My chronological list of the top 20 composers: Bach, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Schumann, Wagner, Verdi, Brahms, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky, Mahler, Debussy, Bartok, Stravinsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich.

Why should it come from a different speaker?

Because the reverb comes not from the piano, but from walls, etc. Which begs the question . . . .

Primary sound reflected from walls would be more important to capture and play out of different speaker channels. Reverb is ambient sound and can just be incorporated into the primary sound, whether stereo or multichannel.
