    I returned the Swissonic mentioned earlier, and went big with an FP-90. The key feel is great, triple sensors let you replay a key after hardly letting it rise again at all. Very expressive. Now I'm even more broke. But happy.

    I have a new appreciation for modeled pianos now. Previously, the expressiveness wasn't too impressive for me. I put that down to not having the right keyboard for it. Though as always, the modeled instruments lack something that the sampled ones have. But the sampled ones also lack the sheer variety of sound and expression control.

    I'll probably wind up getting Pianoteq someday which previously I found too off sounding compared to the sampled instruments.

    Don't wander in here very often but...Pianoteq 6 gets a very good rep in the latest issue of Sound on Sound.

    I figure I'll definitely get it sooner or later.

    I might pick up Keyscape someday too.

    Iíll add to the chorus (heh) for pianoteq. I initially got it because it didnít require tons of disk space (it didnít use samples). But I use it now for basic piano and especially electric pianos, I love how those things sound.

    The FP-90 is like Pianoteq in a way, since it's modeled rather than sampled. I didn't appreciate the sound at first but then I got to tinkering with the Piano Designer and I like it enough now to practice on it directly.

    We were doing some edits of a range of our piano material, some with a real piano (Yamaha C3) and some with Pianoteq 5 and 6 and working on one piece, we thought we heard a slightly creaky pedal release, and later discovered that was the Pianoteq, not the real one. Fooled the pianist who spent quite a bit on the C3!

    I've been using Keyscape for almost 2 years now and know it inside out.

    I've recorded demos of pretty much every keyscape preset here:
    YouTube

    When it comes to "Acoustic Pianos" only, it's hard to choose a particular library. Some are really bad but there are many good ones out there. When it comes to everything else though, Keyscape is the best. I've yet to hear better EPs, Clavs...etc.
