Personally, while no expert on the subject, even without comparing to compared to my other NI and Aturia pianos, this sounds absolutely awful

I've just googled Felt Pianos and I might be being a little unfair, as I don't own another felt piano, it's more the noises rather than the piano sounds it's self (if that makes sense) and no matter what I tried, I couldn't turn them down at all, the noises sound distorted on my system (no other kontakt or Aturia has this problem)

Again, might be me misunderstanding what a felt piano should sound like, as I even hear it in their example linked below.

It's also only 378MB on my PC when the site says it's 500mb download and 1GB needed for install.

Too much noise. Without that (felt?) noise maybe it would be usable.

Felt pianos/libraries typically have far more noises and creaks than conventional library, for example: https://youtu.be/jzcWhWrDnAY?t=21 It is quite unsuited for classical music, obviously, but it has a real 'cozily imperfect' vibe that I really enjoy. Its a matter of taste though, in a song I released yesterday I combined felt with non-felt sounds and had a dedicated separate track for mixing in noise (https://open.spotify.com/album/4agfU9fFHiCGOQilkbFv09). I myself much prefer such sounds over a pure grand like just Garritan CFX. smile

This one from Westwood is very lo-fi, with relatively few samples and very noticeable artifacts on some keys. Useless or character, at least it is free. wink

Why do I allow myself to fall prey to click-bait?
Well ... I did. And this piano is crap. What was I expecting? frown
I guess I can fairly say that I got my money's worth.
