I'd love to have a Steinway D XL, perhaps a Steinway model M or O, or maybe even a Ravenscroft 275 Nord sample. ...Or all of the above. :shock: I was hoping to see a new Nord grand piano sample around July. It seemed like in previous years Nord released a piano sample sometime in the summer, and then another around Christmas. Anyhow, I love my Nord synths and am happy to receive any new piano samples whenever they release them.

But I am getting rather hungry for an XL Steinway sample of some kind. :keyboard:

ps: I do remember a while back that on Nord's own website, they had mentioned that a 'close mic'd' version of the Royal Grand was coming later that winter, but it never materialized yet. I'd be interested in that one as well.


Maybe it's me but the Lady D is not an XL sample? If yes, that's why I was not a big fan, I never got excited by it compared to the Bosie...

Whooo, great Idea, I had forgotten about those ones:
I remember a Francfort Music fest when I was with Yamaha Music (working for them....). I was spending more time in the bechstein stand than on the Yamaha stand !!!! Ok, I was working for the Clavinova department and then, I had the excuse to "check for the best pianos to sample..."

Yes! A few of us eagle eyed folks picked up on that when the 3D S6 sample was released but then we noted that they had removed the text stating that not long after... so I guess we can presume that is no longer happening which is a shame.

I think he was just referring to the fact that none of the Steinway offerings went past a L version... hence we welcome with open arms anything Steinway presented XL. TBH though I dont think I would be so excited if they just suddenly released XL versions of the old offerings. New samples with some different characters are what I look forward to.

I have been spending a bit of time with the Ivory II VST recently and the German Steinway is just incredible which has been satisfying my desires for a super Steinway sound for now. The sample is about 30GB and 18 velocity layers so i guess it should be though. That said for slower computers you can drop it to 4 layers to be kinder on memory and it still sounds pretty good. I only use it at home though as its a pain in the backside to drag laptops out and USB interfaces to run it live so I would love Nord to come along and do something new and exciting on the Steinway front now.

Either way we are long overdue a new killer Grand sample... cmon Nord!!

I would extremely be happy with the 128 mb only German D grand from Kurzweils Artis or PC3A series.
