I'm really surprised nobody's written a review of this piano yet! I've got several: 4Front, EVM, and this one. EVM sounds amazing, but has an out of tune note and is somewhat CPU heavier. If all you are doing is piano, by all means, EVM is great. But when you've got 22 tracks already loaded...
4Front is nice, but doesn't sound as good.
General is very nice in that it's right about the same CPU load as 4front, but has a tone equalling EVM. When I first went looking, I was put off by the apparent lack of any real reviews of it. Now that I've used it, I'm correcting it.
If you're looking for a CPU-light piano that sounds good, this one is it. I was blown away with it. Nice, rich, clear, heavy tone... if you're using a MIDI keyboard and a sustain pedal, this one would really shine.
As I've done in other reviews, so that everyone knows where I'm coming from, I'm mostly a heavy metal/shred style guitar player. I've owned a few synths over the years (Korg Delta, Korg Poly-800, Moog Taurus II, Electro-Harmonix Micro-synth, the cheezy little Casio sampler keyboard, and a Roland Sound Canvas) but I really only consider myself a keyboard player for about a year... and each and every one of you reading this are probably much better keyboard players than I am.
I put it in a downtempo tune right away, I think this really highlights the sound of the piano. It's free, sounds great, is CPU light... how can you go wrong.
