Buying Choices
Lots of people were speaking in hushed tones about this particular new release and by all accounts, with good reason. This new piano features a totally physically modeled piano with no samples at all. Allowing all kinds of modifications to the piano build and tuning it can bring subtle (or not) new tones to the pianists sound palette. Up to now, to change the piano sound to suit your taste, you'd have to either change the setup of a physical piano, then either use that or sample it – time consuming processes whichever way you look at it. With the new V-Piano, you can do all sorts of things with the strings, the hammers and resonance etc.

  2. Riffing with standard preset

Some stuff from the PR:
"The V-Piano's sounds include both "Vintage" and "Vanguard" pianos. The vintage tones faithfully reproduce the sound of contemporary pianos and famous vintage pianos, while the vanguard tones allow users to create never-before-heard tones, going beyond previous physical restrictions of acoustic pianos related to the type and number of strings" No pricing or availability information just yet.
