David B sounds gorgeous. I still hear that even the softest pianissimos are clearer and brighter than usual though, so it’s just the typical Fazioli sound but in that video it sounds awesome. I think this works great when listening to recordings and I have no doubt it feels sublime when played. However, I think it’s probably tricky to convey that same advantages in a sampled library that’s controlled by who knows what controller. Any slight discrepancy in the touch to sound would ruin it.
Not sure where and when we discussed it but usually a sampled piano is played through headphones or speakers and that in itself gives it a lot of additional clarity, compared to how the actual piano sounds. As a matter of fact, I’ve realized Steinways often sound muffled in concerts. If you apply the same logic to Fazioli, it solves that live sound issue but on a recorded sample would get accentuated too much?
I’m projecting. I’ll wait to see what VSL can do with that Fazioli and I really do hope that I can have a Fazioli library that I will love.
