New York Concert Grand (Komplete 7)

What do you guys think of this piano? I have akoustik piano, and I was thinking of getting the new york as well.. I just need more different piano tones.

especially darker tones to be honest so if anyone knows a less bright piece of software could you give me a name!

Ipad Amplitube

what do you think, sound good?

obviously this kind of stuff could rarely be used in a high production track but i think it's great that there are so many cheap fun virtual instruments and plug ins for people to get into music with, and it sounds pretty good! even better than many small beginner amps might sound

I bought one and it arrived yesterday!

opened it up - there is a great case that would protect the mic from any damage, a really nice velvet case and a pop shield

2 years warranty aswell so you are covered for a while

after doing a bit of recording with this mic i can tell you it's just really great at all purpose recording - a perfectly flat image of the room/instrument - although AKG recommend the XLII for vocals the XLS still performs very well for lead vocals - perhaps it could sound warmer but that is why the mic is so good for all purpose. a great frequency response

lastly when I was eqing i had found with cheaper mics that there is little detail in the mids and low mids - just a vague filler sound - but after moving up to a proper studio quality mic the difference is astounding; I feel like I have so much more control to create a balanced sonic image.
