As most of you know, I am VST-holic 😬. So, when VSL offered some of the Synchron Pianos at a discounted price, I bought the Blüthner 1895. I had already the three Bösendorfer (Imperial, 280VC, Upright) so the Blüthner seemed to be a good one to complement them. My other missing ones, CFX and D-274 were not discounted, so this year the VSL addition was clear 😇
I got it an installed it on my dedicated music desktop. But, from first moment, I noticed a resonance around A-2 which was pretty noticeable mostly at mf and higher velocities. It was present from about C-2 to at least B-2 and less pronounced on a larger range. Not the same resonance, but the same kind. It is like a parasite vibration of something on the piano. If that is the Aliquot… I hate it. All in all, once I noticed it, playing the Blüthner lost quite a lot of its interest to me. I was always noticing that 😞
Of course, I checked different speakers and also headphones… and the problem remained.
What is incredible is that there are no comments about that from other users. But I did all what was reasonable to get rid or tame that sound. Nothing worked. So, sadly, I have asked for a refund and VSL has agreed (pretty good customer service 👍🏻)
I am sorry for not being smarter and having tried that VST before, when temporary licenses have been available (in fact, I still have, unused, 1 month licenses for CFX and D-274, I wonder if they will be expired now!)
So, well, this time the end result has been less than stellar 🙄
