    Is there an upgrade path to the full version? I actually love the lite version, but wondered if anyone has benefited by having the full version. I wish I had bought this 4 pianos ago!

    Not sure, but seems like it may depend on where you purchased LITE. I am still pondering which to start with, as not wanting to pay penalty for Upgrade. You might check B&H Photo price for FULL version if you do not find acceptable Upgrade. It has been cheaper than other sources.

    Garritan site seems to indicate 'no-penalty' Upgrade, assuming one purchased LITE from them @ $79.95

    Cool point !! Saw this earlier, but did not follow thru and click 'TRADE UP' button.
    Kudos to makemusic /Garritan if only S/N required for $99. Upgrade. :thumbsup:

    "Note: Garritan CFX Full is too large to be downloaded. This trade up is for physical media." LOL

    FWIW, the full CFX is incredible. It also has the slowest load time of any instrument I have :sleep:

    For me, the the full version of CFX is the main reason to own it. It is a stunningly beautiful piano, fantastically sampled in a large, pretty ambient scoring stage. The only other piano I can think of that is recorded in a similar environment is the HZ Piano by Spitfire and for me, that is just not sampled/or programmed as well. That can also sound lovely in certain scenarios but the CFX is just a lot more playable. The extra mic positions and variety of tonal presets make it a really versatile piano but where it shines is as a beautifully sampled orchestral scoring piano.
