What piano did Kurzweil use for its piano sample? Was it a Young Chang or a Baldwin? or?

Interesting. The midrange octave doesn't sound Steinway - has more of a "bell" tone like one hears on a Baldwin. Kurzweil had a Young Chang piano sample on the K2000 series, I believe, that's why I wondered if that was the base sample of all their grand pianos.

The primary piano sound in the Kurzweil is sampled from an 'American' Steinway concert grand ("D") piano....

Is there really an acoustic with that bell-ish midrange
