Anyone tweaked their Noire to sound like Garritan CFX...?

I know there are some settings floating around - but anyone have settings to make Noire sound more like the Garritan CFX...?

Favorite settings on Garritan are Dark Cinema (and then Classic default of course).

I use a variation of the settings linked in my sig here https://pianoclack.com/forum/d/334-ni-noire-my-best-settings-so-far

also in general its just an interesting request... is this because you love the sound of Garritan, but then dislike something and find NOIRE with better playability or something? Maybe not a fan of the super low volume of Garritan and/or the background noise/hiss?

Well... as long as you asked, lol smile

I really like the use of the sub they used in Noire... for a lot of pieces it really gives it a nice lower-end.

However, I absolutely love the ambiance of the Abbey Road Studios in the Garritan - it just brings the piano to a whole new level.

And, Noire works with the NI Komplete Kontrol software and the NI S88 MK2 keyboard with its dual monitor screens, etc. - the Garritan does not.

So I would love to be able to get the Noire to have the same ambiance of the Garritan.

Stop laughing! smile

I guess this is really only an "issue" for those heavily embedded in the Native Instruments Komplete Kontrol universe...

Too bad Garritan doesn't support NKS... they did at one time, but don't anymore for some reason.

Have you tried messing some different external convolution or algorithmic reverbs to see if you find one you like? If it's the ambiance you're after then I think it's ultimately the reverb you need to tweak. The ones the noire comes with are better than average but sometimes finding the right reverb and settings is all it takes.

Having used both I agree that the main difference is the ambience / reverb. Good luck in emulating that of CFX, it's superb and what sets it apart for the other VST IMO. Other BIG difference is resonance, CFX is very natural, Noire very poor if any. I agree with napilopez, work on reverb to get as close as possible.
