In the Piano Designer function there is Hammer Response (standard setting = 2). It controls the delay from pressing the keys and the hammer striking the strigs.

Does anyone here found another setting more 'acoustic' realistic?

Lol, so it puts back in the latency that people with software pianos try to get rid of?

A little while ago I started a thread asking about how much latency there is in an acoustic piano...whether perhaps our digitals respond a little too quickly to be realistic. The consensus from the discussion was that the latency in acoustics is not very high. Significantly less than 10 ms, which means it's less than can be easily perceived while playing.

I'm not saying it's the last word on the subject. That was just what came up in the prior discussion.

interesting gvfarns...

I did find that increasing the delay a bit improves the acoustic-like sensation...
