Hello dear pianoworld forum,
After a short disappointing intermezzo with a Kawai MP11SE I'm about to pull the trigger and buy a Yamaha NU1X. I tried the Yamaha several times in a store and like the action very much. A good, solid and reactive upright action. I also like the sound of the binaural CFX samples through headphones. But I might still continue using Pianoteq 7, which I like very much (esp. the new Petrof Mistral). In the future I might try Garritan CFX and the VSL Pianos too (my current MacBook Air 2013 4GB RAM wouldn't handle them).
Here are my question:
How does the NU1X work as a midi controller? Is there some strange behavior in particular?
(The Kawai MP11SE for example did not send MIDI-Values below 25-30 no matter how soft you played. With single played soft keynotes sometimes, yes, but in this terms both the Roland FP-30 I currently have and and a Kawai K-500 ATX3 I sometimes have the opportunity to play don't show this behavior and are very reliable through the whole spectrum of velocities).
And: Did anyone tried to play Pianoteq or any other VSTs through the speakers of the N1X? How did it sound, at least ok (esp. compared to the internal CFX sample)?
I hope someone can answer my questions and it may be helpful for some others who also consider a Yamaha NU1X.
