I wouldn't worry much about whether a DP "peaks out" at MIDI velocity = 115 or 120, instead of 127. Many "software pianos" (Pianoteq, Ivory, etc) let you set up a "velocity map", that translates the keyboard's MIDI velo

Actually, there are some newer DP's which have un-looped sounds, reasonable sustain, and reasonable resonance (e.g. the Roland LX-17 and "SuperNatural modelled" cousins). They're not cheap (yet) -- outside Daniel's list of models. Pianote
