    the hqpiano of sampletank free is definitely the best free piano out there. i have the galaxy II steinway, which is great and affordable. worth considering.

    Yes, I was arrested for smuggling it about 10 years ago.
    Not really a great experience tbh.

    Did you listen to the Bosendorfer samples on the Sythology site? Amazing! I've never heard a piano sample that good before.

    You can hear the resonance of the soundboard almost. Seriously good sounding samples. The Yamaha sounds quite nice as well. I wonder if they combine the samples along with a convolution of the chamber.
