I'm going to get the 280VC and the CFX. If I had an EDU or other discount I'd buy full versions of both, immediately smile

Happy playing! I'm sure you'll enjoy them - and you can always upgrade later! I haven't been able to bring myself to pay the upgrade fee for the CFX as it's a lot for the one extra close mic! (though I still want it!)

Thanks! And I totally agree - I'd have a hard time upgrading the Yamaha too. Ideally I would get the full library on sale. Otherwise I may just settle for the standard version.

Hello,

@Joe Garfield, To me, that is an interesting and useful write-up on these three VSLs, thank you!

As is this thread.

Cheers and happy further decision making,

HZ

Bosendorfer Upright. I even like it more after purchasing VI Labs Modern U, which is great too.

It's definitely underrated. Other than the a slightly muddy quality to the bass typical of uprights, it sounds a fair bit like a small grand.

I too personally prefer the tone of the Bosendorfer upright to the modern U, which I also own, although the modern U might be the most out of the box playable library I've encountered. The VI Labs folks are scripting wizards.

+1

I am also enjoying the Bosëndorfer Upright quite a lot lately, although playability is somewhat better on the Modern U

Both are keepers thumb

As long as the T7 has a direct USB C or USB 3.0+ connection, then the weakest link will be the T7 at 1000 MB/s (which is not weak!) Ram and CPUs are much faster - the limiting factors are actually the connections to the processor. SSDs are limited to 600MB/s because that's about as fast as the SATA connection can stream the data to the processor, so there's no need to make a drive that reads much faster. NVMEs are fast because they use similar technology to RAM, including similar connection to the processor. But NVMEs need to have processors (many of the NVME drives have dedicated on-board processors) to manage the non-volatile memory, so they still run slower than RAM. USB devices are limited by the USB cable and connection speed, which is 480MB/s for the older black ones, 4800 BM/s for the blue ones, and faster for the newest generation including USB C. USB is still not as fast as the RAM or processor.

Never mind what's above, I think I just had a senior moment! lol. You weren't saying the speed of RAM would the bottleneck, the lack of RAM would be.
