    Yeah, misspelling makes that piano sound awful. Replacing it with free piano that knows how to spell!!!!

    How come? I was trying to purchase today but the early bird discount didn't apply.
    I contacted your support team and "Nick Cameron" responded to me that it has unfortunately ended yesterday!
    (Would you be able to help the poor guy here:whistling:)

    When did you try it? The discount should work through 11:59PM, we extended the sale one more day because of an error on our side communicating with users.

    Now downloading.. and while really excited about the library overall, the thing I'm anxious about the most is that tiny space I'm pointing at below...I really have high hopes that scrolling the "sample start" knob all the way to the left, would mean hearing more of the "key down" noise (as opposed to hammer strike noise).

    This may sound as a ridiculously unnecessary detail, but trust me it gives a magical thickness & weight to the sound specially when playing at low velocity. And Yes there will be a tiny delay in response for sure but it's definitely worth it IMO!

    If not the case, then I hope Alex & embertone would consider this feature in a future update...I mean, they went crazy meticulous with the release notes already... so why not:)

    The sound/sample quality is amazing. I'm loving these deep low notes and dreamy high notes

    I have problem now with all other piano libraries, now they sound flat and empty compare to Embertone.

    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?
