I have an lx705, the default sound is nice but sadly still not on the level of an acoustic piano or some more realistic digital piano.

I am well aware it can never be 100% the same, but I would glad to use the Piano desgin option with the best setting to make it more closely resamble.

If there is already thread about people sharing their settings will glad to hear. thanks.

I think Roland modeled piano sounds usually are a little too much bright and percussive in the high velocities, but they sound lovely at low velocities. So, what I would do, is to lower the value of the LID in the options, because this applies a low pass filter that should help to get a more round sound in the high velocities. Then I would try to lower some bright resonances, like the duplex scale, undamped string resonances and similar things. Then, if the metallic feeling in the sound is not gone, I would try to use an heavy touch curve or a mellower voicing and I would increase the parameters of a room-type reverb.

I do something like that with the EX piano patch of my Kawai and the result is very good IMHO. At defaut the EX piano patch sounds clean and bright, but a little too digital and artificial, like a typical Roland main piano sound. But by varying some values in the options, I get a very nice piano sound.
