I would be surprised if Kawai went back into the studio to create new recordings of their acoustic grand and Rhodes/Wurlitzer for the latest sample sets. The samples in the MP7/MP11 may be freshly derived from the original recordings, but I doubt tha

The top voice is a modified version of the melody and the bottom voice is a standard counterpoint. The excerpt is (possibly not intentionally) modeled after a passage in the Bach C minor Partita. I still don't see how the melody line was "transf
