#2447196 - Today at 03:11 PM Poor sounding output with Ravenscroft 275 software.

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if this problem has been mentioned before, but I can not get my Ravenscroft 275 to sound the way it should.
The hard- and software I use is mentioned in my signature.

The out-of-the box configuration produces a dark, cheap piano sound and I wonder if this is due to my hardware or anything else.

Did any of you experience the same and how did you solve the problem?

I emailed VI Labs mentioning this, but no response yet.

Thanks for any help and enjoy playing.

Regards, Osiris

What is Intel High Definition Audio?. Is this the internal sound card on the iMac?
Or is your "iMac" a Hackintosh?
How does other audio output sound from this card?

Intel High Definition Audio is the internal soundcard in the genuine iMac with OS X Yosemite (latest version).
This soundcard has a good output, but I would not call it high-end though.
However the Ravenscroft should sound pretty good with it.
Seen and heard a few demo's with Macbooks and they sounded quite well too.

Can you share a recording with us?. What are you outputting to?' First thought is it's the headphones or monitors you're using?

Might not be relevant, but I had the same problem with Pianoteq few weeks back, the sound output sounds cheap and metallic. The problem lies in the velocity settings of the software, after I adjusted the velocity settings, there is a huge difference.
