For those of you interested in using a controler keyboard with a software synth or sampler (GigaStudio, Halion, Kontact, etc.) to get the most realistic piano sound, take a look at the Synthogy - Ivory collection:

http://www.synthogy.com/

It currently only works on Mac but a Windows version is coming in the new year (if you can believe software release dates). I don't personally have this library so I can't give it a review but the samples on the web site are amazing!!!

Worth the look and listen. I'd love to hear a review from anyone who has this setup.

It's pretty great. I love how you can run it as a plug-in without having to use Giga/Kontakt, etc. I still record my acoustic, but in a pinch, this is about as good as it gets!!!

Before I say anything about this piano, I would need to listen to demos of the implemented modelling features.

I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for the Windows version. It was announced back in January. Mind you, I think their problems are legal, not technical.

The Mac version hasn't been shipping very long either. I wouldn't read anything into it. I think they're just focusing on a professional user base. The Windows version shouldn't be too far behind.
