vagfilm Decision, decision... Upgrade my VSL Steinway D-274 from standard to full, or wait for a future VILabs grand that may never materialize??? Fighting my gas...
I need the full to get the sound I prefer. Standard only gives the condenser mic and I feel that it's a bit too bright by itself. In my case, I use the tube mic to bring in some warmth and also the mid 1 and surround for natural reverb.
I'd say upgrade to the full and be ready to seriously consider a VILabs grand if something like that ever does come to market. Also, keep in mind that I'm a recovering VST addict. 😀
