Pianissimo Virtual Grand Piano

Pianissimo Virtual Grand: Acoustica.com

Has anyone tried this one yet in a mix...I wonder if this would sit out well when mixed with other VSTi in an arrangement.

It looks like 4Front Truepiano...but a bit cheaper though.

    Hi, I'm from the future (sorry for grave digging but I found this post in the "Related" window)...
     
    This is a great piano. I like it much better than TruePianos or most others out there. I does better as a solo piano but doesn't sound too bad in a mix either. I like layering it with another piano I found.
     
    It's on sale right now (as is Mixcraft) and can't be beat for the price. The link above is still good too.

    I am in the present and I concur. I have not tried a sampled/emulated grand piano that comes close to Pianissimo. I got it with my Pro Studio license after I ascended to the top tier of the Mixcraft beta testing team a few years ago and was just blown away.
     
    As far as sitting in a mix, if I process it as if it were the real thing, it does just fine.
     
    I saw Sergio Mendes on a TV appearance using a Yamaha Motif's plasticky grand piano patch. Mr. Mendes is one of my piano idols, has been for half a century, and really, if they couldn't have managed to have Sergio Mendes play a real grand, I would have much rather he had my old Dell Inspiron running Pianissimo. It would have been mais que nada.

    Pianissimo is a fine product and I use it often..  Even use it as a standalone on the laptop when I am writing songs.  Has always been solid to me and there are enough variations ie Upright, Grand etc etc to make it a valid piano in my arsenal of sounds that I rely on.

    The OP only had to wait 10 years for a reply. Hope he's been checking back every day.

    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    Just a decade?  That's a quicker response than I got from CW support!
