I don't see any portamento arts listed. I'm sure it's because recording portamento with 60 violins, etc. would render it useless!
I do wish it was available for the smaller (20 section) sizes.

Yes :) that's for sure, and the reason Tundra was an insta-buy for me. That was taking into account I don't have much use for those softer articulations, but I really love that library and brings something new to the table. The soft patches in HZS demos sound lovely as well, but again, not something I would use all the time. So I'm waiting for more walkthroughs that showcase other areas of the library, especially one with the legatos and very curious also about the different mic positions because I hear a lot of room in the demos. I know, when you have a great room you want the sound of it, but there is probably a bit too much for my taste. Would be great to know how much of it can be fine tuned with the mics options.
Have you checked out EVO III? You might like it.

Wish it was there for the big sections as well. Think it would have sounded immense if they could have pulled it off.

Yes, I haven't got any of the EVO series yet, but Evo III looks very interesting indeed. Thanks for the suggestion.
Whatever you do, don't get stuck with both Evo 1 AND 2, one or the other is fine. I bought both and now feel it was a bit overkill.

They're really good libraries...but I'd mostly recommend 3 because of the evolutions. Plus, 4 is all woodwinds and gives a writer something different (in an inspiring way) to work with, so that's one to consider as well.

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say this but, can you please bring yourself to mention this to Paul and Christian!! The HZ Piano is incredible so anything more from Spitfire and yourself (and that Piano) is very welcome. It's such an inspiring sounding instrument.

Would also love to see CH Vlog on the psychological aftermath after a HZ sampling session! haha!
I own several dozen piano libraries and just recently acquired HZP in the last big sale... Coveted it for a long time. By far the most beautiful sounding instrument of the bunch... can meander all night long with bliss flowing thru my veins... I avidly read all the posts associated with it and all the technical whining about this or that after it's release and as I was financially challenged at the time I decided to skip it... Fortunately I decided to revisit HZP during the recent sale and I am SOOOOO glad I did... for me, what it comes down to is "the sound"... it is gorgeous, lovely, captivating and absolutely heavenly... don't give a shit about other issues... it is simply wonderful...and begs to be played, like NO OTHER piano library I own and that is a very special gift... I thank you, Hans and the Spitfire boys...

Sad that a few self righteous egomaniacs splatter intelligent sounding garbage...in a realm... "composing" or, as I see it, songwriting... that in itself is an amalgamation of soooo many variables... that there is an ever expanding vista of beautiful creations that are possible, which is exactly why it is so awe inspiring to listen to as well as create. That was a mouthful, clumsily conveyed... but putting people in boxes is just plain dumb...

Sad that well-meaning buyers expressing concerns about the playability and overwhelming technical requirements of a library that Hans himself described as turning out a bit "odd" get labeled as self-righteous egomaniacs splattering garbage for simply expressing a contrary view.

I myself am a fan of the HZ Piano and use it a lot in certain contexts but certainly understood where those took issue with it were coming from.

Did not mean to imply all those for whom HZP did not meet their needs (ie, half peddling et al) were as described... if some have particular needs, fine... and no library is going to please everyone... my comment was more directed at the one mysteriously unnamed but sanctimonious individual who appeared on the forum spewing a bit of trollish venom in several directions and engaged the zman... sorry for my lack of clarity.
