No, completely different company. I agree, there are some truly stellar pianos available now. But there’s always room for one more in a good space. At $50, it’s also quite a bit cheaper than most. Tempting.

I've owned a copy of their Vintage Upright Piano for about 3 years. Really nails the Tom Waits vibe if you're into that sound - very well sampled & scripted, so it gave me the confidence to buy the Signature Grand and I'm very happy to have it. The hall ambience & releases they captured with the 2 mic sets give it an authentic depth and liveliness which I appreciate. The launch price is a very generous offer for such a high quality sampled piano.

At this point, i doubt if there is any piano library you don't own :shocked:

To me this piano looks interesting and the price is good. I love pianos with soul. Many times I find in them more inspiration than in more expensive pianos. Yesterday I was download from Pianobook free piano Mason & Hamlin model A from 1928. Author sample his home piano with two cheap Audio-technica mics and focusrite scarlett 2i2 and I was very surprised how that sound and plays. I dont know how many velocity layers piano have, probably no more than 3 but it sounds very good and playability is excellent. So if anybody have obsession for pianos this is something I recommend to download for free. Add some external reverb.

Been looking forward to their new stuff. It seems like a clever piano with some interesting features. Hopefully this means they have more stuff to release soon... and not another 5 years to wait :)

I'd also like to point out how much I LOVE the philosophy behind settling for 2, maybe 3 very different mics at maximum. Simple, pleasant and flexible if you do it right.
No need for a bushel of mics to make you dizzy.
