    From the system requirements, it looks like it will consume a lot o' processing power, eh?

    Let me know how it sounds once you get it!

    I presume the normal NI DFD (Direct from disk) extension is working with this, then it would not be a big memory hog. It would be interesting if it sounds better than the EWQL Bösendorfer 290 package that I think sounds pretty good for a grand piano.

    Not for a while, most likely.

    It sounds very good, I wish I were a keyboard player. Midi's sounds very good, but especially the Steinway sounds good if you play keys and are used to a synth with a light touch. Runs smoothly on 1GB on RAM on my 'fuser due to the DFD.

    Sorry :) .. fuser = Computer. DFD = Direct from disk, streaming from the hard disk instead of just running trough RAM.

    Sorry, but English isn't my native language, so sometimes my slanguage gets the better of me.

    Gotcha, thanks.

    So is A.P. sample based rather than synthesized?
