Here is an acoustic piano. It's difficult to get the entire range 'accurate', this one is better in the low-mid range. I have used the key morph group to do some level and rate scaling. I discovered that in order to get four voices per slot, you must keep at or below 24%. Seems the voice allocation wants at least 4% 'headroom'. You can get 16 voices on an unexpanded G2 if you ditch the reverb, otherwise 14 voices.
I am not a piano player so please feel free to criticise. I don't have a sustain pedal so I don't know if works as one would expect.
Have included a short mp3. Please excuse the poor audio quality.

Surprisingly good for such a simple patch. I don't think it'll fool anyone in a solo capacity, but it would be usefull in an ensemble, that's for sure.

Yes, its very much a 'bury me in the mix' sort of patch. I also made a mistake in my assertion about DSP% Embarassed . I didn't notice that adding one more module bumped the voice memory usage to over 25%, resulting in a reduction of the voice count. Seems the voice memory limit might be hit before you run out of DSP in some cases.

Have tweaked the original, primarily to get rid of the pronounced side bands in the bass notes.

Nice patch. Not wanting to be rude, I think this patch (when played soft) makes an excellent harp, when playing 'broken chords' (I hope it's called this way in English) or arpeggio's. And yes, the sustain ped works as expected.

Oh, I almost forgot to mention: I finally have an engine!!!!!! Very Happy
