Just the octave without any other checks was a bit disconcerting. In fact, to me, it was really disconcerting! Most of them were a toss-up. 'Just not enough surrounding information, and a mic doesn't hear they way a human does. This mic sounded like

Dear all, so far I have not heard a single recording which actually proved a serious sound issue in the MP11. What I have heard are recordings of various phenomena that abound in acoustic pianos, and that might be amplified in particular setups....
