Hi all, i'm a new ca93 owner from Italy.

I recently swapped my vertical acoustic piano with this CA93, but i'm not very impressed by grand piano sound (maybe i'm too used to acustic sound).

So i'm looking for the best presets for classical music. any suggestions?

Welcome and congratulations, metallox! You came to the right place. smile
By the way, I see what you mean. I personally never use the standard factory piano setting anymore, at least not without any tweaks...

Let me recommend some selected dual voice presets that you may prefer for performing classical pieces:

* Steinway Grand Devotion R2.1 - Normal Touch Edition CA93
* Shigeru Kawai Concert Grand R2.0 - Heavy Touch Edition
* Take the EX to the Max R1.0 - Heavy(+) Touch
* Warm & Fuzzy Fazioli R2.2
* Warm Baby Medium Grand at Home R1.0

Your feedback is highly appreciated! I'll keep a few acoustic piano presets up my sleeve, in case you're not fully satisfied with at least one of these... wink

Welcome Metallox,
As a new CA-93 owner as well, I am really interested which of the above settings has your preference, they are all a massive improvement on the standard grand piano sound, thanks to TAD's research.
The Steinway and Fazioli have a warm, more mellow sound and I use them both when playing anything from Mozart to Debussy etc..., Steinway is very complex, with lots of string resonance.
The Shigeru lacks a little bit in body IMHO, but is very nice in the higher register, the EX is a real concert grand! I need to play more with the Warm Baby Medium Grand to form a valid opinion.
I'm sure you will enjoy these presets! cool
Jasper

Holy ... TAD! thumb This is an amazing boost to the built-in church organ. I'm not much of an organ player, but I think I will download some 'easy' Bach organ sheet music to give this preset the full treatment. The master volume slider needs some serious downgrading though in order to keep my neighbour as friend! grin

You're not getting personal towards Mr. Shigeru Kawai, right? wink
I'll have another look, because this remark is of course totally unacceptable for anything bearing his name.. cool

Happy to hear your comments, especially concerning the dynamics. Please note that the sound signature was modelled after a K. Kawai Grand standing in a large living room in Apeldoorn. ...oh no, not my living room! laugh

AMBIENT STEINWAY EXPERIENCE R1.0


let me see...still based on the trusted Steinway Devotion R2.1 with a few tone tweaks, dynamic voicing instead of mellow and delay 3 instead of 2, right?
After a testdrive I'm not certain which one I prefer. It has a wider tonal spectrum for sure, a profound bass, but a little less mellow than the GD Steinway maybe. It's a very nice one TAD, thanks, kind of holds the middle between the Steinway GD and the overwhelming Bösie.
I must say that my personal preference still goes to the mellow, woody sounding piano's like the Steinway GD and the Fazioli when playing classical. These two really make me forget, also because of the action, that I'm playing a DP.

I love this new organ, very smooth and deep, thumb indeed! Should be great for organ players to put these two (big church organ and this new pipe) in their presets and switch between them.

Thanks as well for the ultra-speedy update of the setting file, super stuff!

How did you get this idea???? wink wink

Great settings thumb , however I need to give you a quick lecture on these old instruments! whistle smile
The clavichord was the predecessor of the harpsichord. It had a single keyboard and sounded of course very different from the twin-keyboard harpsichord.

You're quite right, mixing and blending the name of a clavinet with a harpsichord does not render a clavichord, especially since that voice doesn't even exist in the CA93/C63 soundlist. It does render something else (you'll hear about that one later), but I'd better call it a day for now! blush grin wink

Hi TAD, since the Bechstein last week you're going with 9 new settings in one single week!!! As someone said before: "Man, you are a machine!!! thumb "
Unfortunately, I don't have enough time to try all of them, but I'm impatient to take a time very soon...

Since I've the TAKE EX TO THE MAX heavy touch version in the "autoload" (1-10 User Memory) I like it every time even more: this setting have an incredible playability from pp to ff entire range, very good dynamics and tone colors, enough deep bass, "clean" mid and high tones (it makes me to remember dewdrops rolling out of a petal), no "Yamaha bells" laugh ha wink , and you can get "soft mellow" sound in pp, and progressively growing to "soft bright" and "studio-like" sound in f-ff ...

This setting is one of the best setting to me. If I should choose, this setting would be one of my top 3 and it's a very nice christmas gift, thanks TAD once again wink

Oh yes, it's like a circus lion now, still dangerous, but with the right training, it can be a pussycat as well! laugh
Nice update again, I like it! thumb


I would say the previous versions is not for everyone because the p-pp playability is not the best, indeed. But this setting have a very beautiful sound, and what it is very funny is you can get a nice wooden soundboard resonant effect as more as you play f-ff.

I'm still impatient to play "with" this R2.2 new beast grin

@TAD, thank you, very nice and fresh sounding patches. But you know what - I still love your original "good old" Steinway patch the most! That's what I play most of the time without headphones. With headphones on I usually just take the original single layer Concert Grand with some additional reverb.

You're welcome! Yes, I remember, that Steinway patch was love at first sight for you. cool It's nice to see that the huge amount of diversity in sound signatures offered now makes every individual make his/her own personal choices. smile

By the way, just curious: is the Steinway just too much for your headphones or do you experience a fundamental difference in perception compared to playing live? help wink
