No, I just love Pianoteq and I find him a good sample brother that is fully working to play and enjoy in both.


tbh The Grandeur still does trump NOIRE

Wow - absolutely stunning. Up until now I've only tested the pure sounds and it easily beats all my favourites, which are Galaxy D, Bechstein Digital, Ravenscroft and Ivory Fazioli. I like pianos with a clean, dry, well-recorded and even tone that can be sculptured as needed and this piano delivers. It has the distinct CFX sound, with its focussed mid range. It's well tuned and softly voiced, but increasing the tone control to 10% gives a preferable slightly harder attack. It's easily as playable as the Garritan CFX, but without the annoying hiss in the low velocity layers.

Yes, I'm in love, and have not started on the FX and Felt piano.

The only thing I'm missing is una corda samples. I can easily live without pedal down samples.


hi Smaug,
I am thinking about buying Noire. do you have any more thoughts about it?
anything more about the regular Pure Noire, and the Felt, FX, and Particle Engine?

I'm still loving it and it has replaced all my others for daily practice (Grandeur, Ravenscroft and Vintage D). I only use the pure and have not played around with the FX and felt.

Just increasing the tone control 10% for a slightly harder attack. Otherwise I play it dry with noises off.

Just checked the interface - I use "Basic Pure" preset and increase "Color" to 1 o'clock for a slightly harder attack and decrease "Dynamic" to 11 o'clock for reduced dynamic range. On the first tab I switch off all noises and on the FX tab I switch off all FX, including reverb as I have a centre speaker under the piano that provides the ambient sound using the room in which I'm playing. To me this gives a much more natural tone than trying to simulate a space using near-field monitors with a convolution reverb.

thank you for all you wrote.
I played around with the Particles engine.
one configuration I liked was
start with Basic Pure preset, and then Low Shakes Particle Engine, and High Sparkle in the Algorithm Mode Setting.

Below is a superb and enjoyable demonstration of Noire by a skilled musician named Simeon Amburgey,

I was impressed by the number, quality and simplicity of adjustments; I could see noodling with them frequently, not so much to improve sound but rather just to mix things up. I didn't find the particle engine and felt options to be interesting.

I recently purchased Noire and have had good results using it to replace Garritan CFX in some of my recordings. It sits much better in the mix, to my ears, and the piano sound is much better defined than the Garritan. I could never tame the room sound of the Garritan. I just replaced this one last night, and I'm pretty pleased with the result.

Hi,

Ì just purchase NI NOIRE grand piano, I also own the Garritan CFX but NOIRE sounds somewhat richer and warmer.

I've a question:

" Is there a way to re-save only the 'Noire Pure' version as I won't use the `'Noire FELT'` version, I want to save disk space since I am only concerned by the clean version. Any idea please? Thanks! "
