    I just wrote a very positive review for AskAudio. Try combining the main and hammer mics, the sound is glorious.

    Yes, in the beginning I was mainly use room with close mics, but now I use only main with close or hammer mics as you said. Fantastic combination really. Room mics goes better with hammer mics than close for some classical distance feeling.

    I'm in love with that piano...truely a piece of art!

    However sorry for being naggy @Embertone but is there hope to see this feature implemented for extra meatiness to the sound?

    An update for everyone- we are releasing more documentation at the beginning of next week. And also, we’ve been hard at work creating an instrument update that includes additional features, most notably, half pedaling. It sounds and feels great! We hope to have an update ready within a week or two.

    Thanks!!

    Oh, that's fantastic!
    You've solved its only flaw I think. It is closest to perfection among piano virtual instruments that have recently come out.
    Thank you for your hard work.

    Great news on the documentation and the update (honestly, why not release both together?). Will the update include a fix to the script that's supposed to link parameters when using multiple microphones? How does it ensure the same sample is being triggered at the same time across instances?

    Given this is a 1955 Steinway, expect the update to arrive by Telegram ;)

    WOW! Just picked up the lite version (great to be able to "try" that way). Totally awesome. Definitely the best piano vst I own. Will definitely move up to the full version!

    Ok Just fired up my lite version... I'm not a good pianist or listener but... To my ears plays magic even the lite one!
