Hi Harpuia,

We're also stoked!

This is a completely new piano, the one we hand-picked for Synchron Stage Vienna.
An incredible instrument!
Enjoy the demos, more videos on the way :-)

Best,
Paul

So all the instruments in the concert grand comparison video are now sampled. I know that such a day may come, and it's here. Though it's not my favourite sound (I'm a Steinway man), I still want to say, congratulations!!!

Paul, Are there any additional special discounts for the full Imperial library for those who already have the other VSL pianos?

I already have the full libraries for all the other VSL pianos, all except for the latest upright.

Paul, what about upgrade pricing for Vienna Imperial owners?

Hi,

This is our very own, carefully treated Bösendorfer Imperial, with a completely new recording.
So there is no upgrade pricing for owners of the original Vienna Imperial we recorded 10 (or more?) years ago.

Best,
Paul

Even for those who just bought Vienna Imperial very recently? cry
What about pricing for those who already own all five other VSL pianos, or for those who own the Synchron Pianos bundle?
Something like Bundle Upgrade option?
Please, don't break my heart!!!

Hi VladK,

It's the same rules for everyone - and those 2 perspectives of the Bösendorfer Imperial are actually quite different.
It's not always easy to love pianos.... on the other hand, I often deem myself lucky not to be a guitar player ;-)

Best,
Paul

Paul, please consider lite versions of your pianos in the future. Your pianos are too big and expensive for my situation which has kept me away from being a customer. Lite versions with a couple of mics and 30 or so velocity layers at a price point of $99 would get you significantly more sales. I would jump at this immediately. Even your standard library is too much for me. Thanks for your consideration!

Yes, unfortunately, even if we have all the other pianos, the price is not reduced. I remember that one of the piano came with a discount if we had some others.

However, the Lite version would be enough and not that expensive compared to the Vienna Imperial. (The full version would take more space on my SSD and replacing a 2TB by a 4TB would be quite expensive... I am not sure my CPU would be enough to mix all the full samples)

I hope to read glowing reviews from early buyers. I have to delete the Garritan CFX though to make some room. I have the VSL Bösendorfer upright and it’s a very nice vst. I DO hope it’s not as bright/cold as the VSL Steinway and CFX that i don’t own ,but there is not a single online sound example that sold me ...yet.

+1!

With the option to upgrade to standard or full later on, of course.

Wow !! I am mostly interested in the condensator close 1 mics ( part of the standard library) and that Bösendorfer close 1 sounds a lot better than the VSL Steinway condensator close 1 mics. A whole lot....the Steinway in that particular example (VSL page) sounds ice cold whereas the Bösendorfer still sounds very good and appealing to my ears. I think i’m sold right now...

How does the bass extension work for the black keys? Is there something else to purchase?

I would imagine that the sympathetic resonances are activated/enhanced with the additional strings, but the individual notes are not available unless you have the extra keys on your controller or you activate them through the virtual software individually.

Nice, I had been waiting for this. Will probably pass on this one though, let's see what the others think after they buy it. I'd especially be interested in a comparison to the old Imperial. Also I would love to hear if this one has out of tune notes again or not.
