Absolutey stunning and jaw dropping virtual instrument... - Ever since I downloaded this app, I seriously have been playing my keyboard twice a day...I didn't even practice this much when I was taking lessons as a kid! It's just insane how much this sounds like a real Steinway. The sample quality is incredible hands down, but what really makes it are the nuances such as the sound of the dampers when you press and release the sustain pedal, the sound of the hammers when you push a key and so on. I've got a modest M-Audio Pro Keys 88sx and even though it's only a semi-weighted keyboard, I can still get a good dynamic range out of my playing after dialing in the velocity settings between the app and my keyboard. All you need then are good speakers or headphones to truly appreciate the sonic quality. I'm using M-Audio AV-40s and it sounds fantastic. Anyone complaining about lag or poor performance must have a slow computer or the wrong buffer settings because my 2.53Ghz MBP handles this app no problem. I haven't enjoying playing my keyboard this much in eons...thank you guys so much for this piece of software.

Not as expected - I was so excited to try this app out, after I purchased it, it was a big let down as it sounded way less than expected, and it aint cheap I used it with Yamaha P-105 btw, I won’t recommend it, the default yamaha piano sound was way better
