I was thinking of a new software for my piano.
I have IvoryII Grand Piano's.
In the thread on Best Steinway Software Piano. I have to admit. I was impressed with the reference to the Vienna Grand and the Production Grand. Only problem is cost. That and having to learn Kontakt.
I saw others come behind and still say that IvoryII American D is the best. I listen to examples. It's good.
I wonder if it's enough to spend the money?
To me, a substantial upgrade would be the Production Grand. I really like it.
So I'm sitting here on Memorial Day weekend. MF has it's 15% or 10% off sale. I'm having a hard time convincing myself to go for the IvoryII AmericanD. I just about like the IvoryII Uprights as much.
Then I listen to the Production Grand. Figure the others aren't worth it?
Still I don't actually own any of them. I only own the IvoryII Grand Piano's. Sometimes I think I should just use what I have. It ain't no slouch. Save the money. Maybe get the Production Grand later?
So those of you who have AmericanD and Grand's. Can you tell me more? Is it really that much better? I'm just not hearing it in recordings?
If you already have Ivory II grands, and problem with the money to spent, then you dont need Ivory II ACD, if money is not a problem, then go for it. Ivory ACD is little different in sound, not much better then German D. Lots of people still prefer German D instead of American D. I like them both, but I am not sure that you will be satisfied for money you spent, because they share lots of similarities in engine. Personaly, after Ivory II grands, I will pay for VSL Vienna. Unfortunately, there is no guaranties that you will think the same like me after ordering.
