good sampled pianos on Hardware?

Post by ShadowsWithin » Tue Nov 11, 2008 1:41 am

obviously the Kurtz's are know for there sampled pianos, but are there any other synths that have good sampled pianos?

also would the SR-JV80 piano expansion be worth the buy?

the roland MKS 20 is supposed to be one of the best piano modules ever...

but the reality is a sampled piano will never touch a real one because a real piano's waveform is consistently changing every millisecond that the note sustains...

but who cares!?

check out the MKS 20, you will not be disappointed
No one cares, no one sympathizes,
so you just stay home and play synthesizers.

I don't mean to be a bother, but wasn't there just a thread on this in Buyers Guide?

Mr. Shadows - anything pertaining to a purchase can be posted in the 'Buyer's Guide'.

I'd move this normally, but as Johnny has pointed out, there are a couple of threads in there which should help you - check 'em out!
I didn't get where I am today by posting on internet forums.
