Grand Piano VSTi Demo/Test

Grand Piano VSTi Demo/Test Comparison
 
Here’s the demo of various grand piano VSTi’s (for details about this VSTi’s please check this post )

VST piano instruments played with a royalty free MIDI, test includes free, DSK music’s Acoustik Keys, General and Prova Piano from Safwan Matni, 4front Piano module from Yohng, along with the MIDI recorded using the trial versions of True Pianos (Diamond module) and Acoustica’s Pianissimo (Solo Grand Piano mode) (btw, I used Synthfont to generate these demos, using 128 bit rate mp3 encoding for less size ) I couldn’t generate songs from C V piano and Yannleo Acceentor, discussed in the link above, mainly because of a virtual MIDI driver problem, or the latest versions of DAW’s I am using, cause it worked earlier, will try again later, but if you could get C V piano to work, it’s the best free piano VSTi out there

Update (March-11-2013) have uploaded Yannleo Acceentor and CVPiano demos
(for download links please visit this post )

and if you check the soundfont and vsti comparison on the freeware market, the soundfonts listed here are a better choice than VSTi IMHO :)

Grand Piano Soundfonts

Though soundfont are old technology, there are still many good grand piano samples available out there which we can use in our project, a MIDI file can be played and recorded with soundfonts/giga sounds either using software like Synthfont (usually with no settings) or a VSTi plugin to import soundfonts like DSK Sound font player (with VSTi soundfont players there’s opportunity to add sound settings to the raw soundfonts

here’s some good free grand piano soundfonts/giga sampler format
