I like the way it sounds in the demos, but I doubt I'd fork over money for it. I also looked for half pedaling and it's not there. The thing that continues to puzzle me is not the 6 layers but the 4 round robins. IMHO, if you're going to record the notes at 6 velocities x 4 times, why not just make 24 layers? Unless there are not really 4 rrs per layer, but even then, 10 vel layers would still be superior. Perhaps it's too much work to blend more layers, which is why I also only do 7.
And I guess the real value in the instrument is that they recorded it with the same mics and environment as BBCSO, so it automatically blends with the orchestra.
