After a month of no piano and several weeks of piano with no VSTs ... I finally have a proper piano again.

Since our move at the end of Thanksgiving I've been setting up house with nearly no time off.
Where previously I had "only" a bad knee and a bad back, I now have new pain in both hands (newly emerging arthritis?).
All that and no piano. Too much punishment. It's been a tough grind for nearly two months.

But setting up house is nearly complete. The only work left is to hang some pictures.
And to build a bathroom (where my only "work" is to write the contractor a check). smile

So I can now sit at the piano and forego its crap internal sounds for the beauty of my favorite VSTs.

It's so good that it's almost enough to make me forget about buying a new piano. (Not really!)

NO he doesn't have it yet. Maybe you should put a down payment on one MacMacMac before the bathroom. You know which one is more important wink

MacMacMac take care of your hands. Slow down on the house fixing up. I can't wait to see a picture of your new piano set up. Please post one when you finally get it.

Peace.

It is a good thing you live across the Pond. MacMacMac would probably drive to your house if you were in the USA and drive that thought out of your head wink

Really I thought Pianoteq was just okay in earlier versions but the new version 7 is very nice. To me anyway. Let MacMacMac stay in his Sampled world. He is happy smile

MacMacMac has already switched to Pianoteq but doesn’t want to admit it. (I don’t know why...) smile

He so obviously so loves Pianoteq, he has to sound like he's in denial . . .. . . .the resonances are overwhelming me; what on earth they gonna do to him?
Oh, Mac! We're talkin' about you, not to you . . . smile

Pictures, you say? After seeing pictures of the pristine music rooms of some other PW members I'm not inclined to show anything.

There's nothing special here. Just an old CLP240 with a pair of Adams on top, a monitor in the middle, a small stack of gear on a table beside the piano, and a rats nest of cables.

The new house has a large bedroom ... but the former one had an even bigger bedroom with space for my desk and piano, and room to spare.
Now the desk and piano are in a kid-sized bedroom, shared with mother-in-law's wardrobe and roll-top desk. It's not exactly cramped, but neither is it spacious.

Nope. No pics worth sharing.

As for piaNOteq ... there's your answer. smile

Don’t you admit about Pianoteq because you hesitate with an other modelled virtual piano (Arturia Piano V for example).

Hey Mac,

Good to know you got your piano setup - great to have VSTs back again.

I live on the same side of pond as Mac and he is welcome to come at anytime to drive the PianoTeq thought out of my head. I might actually make him like PianoTeq smile.

I've been trying out some of the pianos I've neglected for a while, and I'm liking the Kawai EX Pro and the Ivory Bosendorfer.
It's quite a pleasure to NOT have to listen to the built-in sounds of this Clav.
VSTs forever! (Unless the N1X proves me wrong.)

Try out the original Bechstein (it's now a freebie from PT's KIVIR or whatever) and you have a Wild West Piano. It sounds super cool through the speakers and is the most natural of them all; a genuine bar-piano. I use it for everything.
