All this talk of the Garritan CFX has made me want to try it again ... after setting it aside for several years.
I tend to prefer the Steinway sound to that of the Yamaha ... but there are are other differences to consider.
Namely ... how well do my Steinway VIs perform? I've been tiring of the honkiness in the bass of the Grandeur. (Turning down the "Tone" control on the panel eliminates the honk but dulls the tone.)
And the Vintage D, though true to the Steinway sound, tends to be brittle.
So it was refreshing to try the CFX again. I've got the reverb under control now ... and it sound great.
Two things for the experts:
- Once I do all my settings, is there a way to save them so tweaks I don't need to redo them the next time I start up?
- Is there a way to start this CFX with a piano already loaded? It's annoying to go through the load procedure each time.
