Great idea! I didn't have the best listening conditions, but still scored 7 out of 10. What a brilliant way to demonstrate the realism of Signature Grand.

Recently, I tried something similar myself. I let seven of my favorite piano libraries record the same excerpt, randomized them and made a quiz for myself. I correctly identified them all except two. But it was surprisingly easy.
Yes, I think it's really important to do blind tests with gear and libraries. I often catch myself letting my own confirmation biases influence how I perceive and choose gear especially...

Yeah, same story with subtle mix tweaking. I like to close my eyes and click many time on the bypass button until I don't know if my last added EQ or whatever is on or off.
Just after this little test I saw Nahre Sol's last video on Youtube in which she shows her process to record a piano, comparing different mics.

Looking forward for the correct answers with a second opportunity to listen to it.

yes, but once the contest is over there's no reason not to reveal the results
Yes, we will definitely reveal the results. We might not send unsolicited results to everyone who took the test, because we don't want it to be too spammy, but we will post the results and figure out a way for people to see their detailed test results if they want to :)

Signature Grand runs on the FULL version of Kontakt.

Signature Grand is a 9-foot Steinway Model D recorded in a beautiful hall/scoring stage. The instrument naturally excels in film and classical applications, but the user is able to craft the sound to be suitable to nearly any style of playing.

What makes our piano different? Our instrument is bursting with three-dimensional realism due to a unique sampling and scripting process that captures the beautiful early reflections of the recording space. We captured the magic and emotion of playing a beautiful instrument in a world-class space.
Just a reminder, there is ONE day left in the contest! Contest will end September 1st @ 11:59 PM PST. We have had a few winners, so take a shot at it! It takes less than 10 minutes!
