Still think Modartt should have the add-on instrument packs with an extra discount if you buy more of them. Make it a nice bundle deal if you buy extra.


All these years playing and I still consider myself a novice.

I've been trying to decide between modern u and the ravenscroft 275. I don't think I want to get both even though you get a small discount. Common sense tells me to go with the modern u since it's newer and they had several years to perfect their sampling process.

Only buy ModernU if you are really interested in a upright sound. Cause that is what you are going to get.

Great great product if your going to play it. Not so great if your like me and sits on the shelf and you say "That is a great Upright sound"

The Modern U is a marvel of scripting and sampling; Ravenscroft has a very distinctive tone that's pretty divisive and is one I've never fully bonded with even though it plays really nicely.

I'm the opposite of Ron; I think the ModernU is more versatile than it seems at first. Yes, it's first and foremost an upright, but it's not *aggressively* upright if that makes sense. I've recorded some stuff with it that when I play it back I'm surprised by how 'grand' it sounds (albeit in a jazz trio context; I doubt it would sound grand-ish when fully exposed).

All of this I heartily concur with!

Cheers and happy decision making,

I’m pleased to read the opinions on the Modern U on this topic. It is the first VST I’ll get, and my main use is to be a daily use piano (used an upright acoustic for 20 years, kind of miss it with my CLP-745).

The only problem is that I was so excited to finally get it that I didn’t notice that I’ve bought two licenses. Now I’m waiting for VI Labs to get me a refund and didn’t activate any of the licenses I’ve purchased… really looking forward to finally use it myself (instead of simply listening to demos).
