Do the notes always cut off after about 10 seconds or do I maybe have an old version? I downloaded version 1.3, installed it, then downloaded the patch for v1.32 and substituted the .dll file - is that all I need to do?
I think at one point, right after 1.3 came out, there was either a problem with it or the download was actually 1.2., even though it was labelled 1.3---I had the same preset problem. The 1.3 version on the site now though is definitely 1.3 and works for me with all of the presets. I use the 32 bit version bridged in my 64 bit DAW, since for some reason the native 64 bit version (especially on the release) sounds kind of odd.
That being said, this a really good sounding piano --especially for free!! Props to the Dev.!
OK, I just re-checked the labelling on the actual dll file currently in my VST folder (Windows 32 bit version). It also says 18.104.22.168 even though the zip said 1.3. BUT....all the presets load and are working properly for me in Studio One Prof. 2.0.6.
If my recollection is right, I think the only preset bank that won't work would be the original "kvrer" one, which was superceded by a newer one on that same page. All the rest of the preset banks should work.
I downloaded all the different Piano sets from KVR here but they don't show in Piano one, version 1,32. I got FXP files from the sets, inserted them in Piano One's Folder, but they do not show as presets in the VSTi, only the Default, which sounds awesomely Great, thank you, and a few included numbered Patches that deliver a strange volume boost noise when I play them (Ok, maybe because it's a demo) that I could silence by moving the Attack slider each time but I see no changes in the parameters and the sound is the same as the Default.
I'm using Acoustica Mixcraft Pro Studio 6 as my DAW and all my VSTis 32 bits load and play perfectly.
My PC is: Intel i7, 870 on Windows 7 64 bits, with 6GB DDR3 RAM.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to install them so that they show and load in Piano One? A special folder (re-) naming, a specific location where to put them?
Thank you so much for any help and for such a great product!
You have to manually add each preset into the patch #. The Preset always appears as fxp file which you have to use load instruments option (maybe it has another name in other DAW)to load them. It will not automatically recognized by the plugin
Alex, do you have a VST folder? Yes? The whole PianoOne13 folder has to be copied or moved into that VST folder. I don't know what DAW you use (I use Mixcraft 6, I created mine) but I believe every DAW has a VST plugins Folder, be it installed by default by the program or one that you already created.
Sorry cannot help you with the other DAWs. Help should be on its way soon...
This is EXACTLY what happened to me when I first added the patches. So I opened "Piano one" inside my DAW and manually assigned the patches (I downloaded) to the numbered (empty) patch banks under the "presets" drop down menu.
I have downloaded Piano One and installed it in my VST folder. I have tried using it in a couple of different DAWs but can't get any sound. In both cases I can see the keyboard keys move in response to the events sequence but the sound is completely dead. I haven't had this issue with the various other VST instruments I use and I can't work out what I am doing wrong with Piano One.
I'm still in the world of 32bit but your point about the location of the whole folder may be the problem - I can't remember whether I put the whole folder in the VST folder or just the dll. I'll check it out when I get home later.
Anyway, if you're using Mixcraft, only 32 bits VSTs are usable. I have Windows 7 64bits, but I believe in the VST world, it works accordingly to your DAWs' capacity. Some can use 64 bits, some 32bits only. As for any other DAW, check in the "About ...." section or ask around..
I think it is pretty obvious - we need some kind of soundset (I think it is about 150 MB) to work with Neo Piano mini. The supremepianos site's link to VST redirects here, but its link to the soundset is not valid. So we have a problem until Sound Magic fix their bloody site!.
I have downloaded several versions and tryed them. But no sound. Either in Sonar x64 and EnergyXT. Is there a problem on windows 7 x64 plateforms ? Is there any official forum where bugs are reported ?
I have had good luck running the 1.3 program in Windows, as well as most of the patches offered above here.
What is the 2.0 version, 1.32 version, and Special Edition? It is mentioned that they are updates - how do I apply these to the 1.3 version? Their folders shows a .dll extension inside, but when loaded they look the same as the 1.3 version but with no sound. And no "hidden" parameters are visible.
I'm not sure what these updates are, and would welcome any help in using them properly. Thanks!
I really like the sound of this thing, but I'm having a problem.
Max Volume is making the instrument get louder instead of softer as I turn the knob down. Even the least loud position (all the way clockwise) hits too hot in my DAW and overloads the fader before the audio leaves Piano One. I can hear distortion when I hit a lot of keys hard, even with no other plugins inserted and the fader turned down to compensate; thus the distortion is happening all inside of Piano One. My instinct is to turn down the volume of Piano One inside the plugin but there is no way to do it. Am I missing something? I'm using the AU in Logic.
1st of all sorry for my bad english. Nice to be in this discussion.
I have installed everything and i came up (maybe) to a solution for the "Not-playing-presets"-Problem.
I use Cubase as my DAW. with F11-Key you can get your VST-Instrument Manager. Here You choose "Piano one" and then click the right icon. Choose "Import FXP/FXB" and select the Preset-Sound, you want to play.
In my DAW it works fine, but I can hear, that every (every) sounds have a "hard end". Try to play a note and hold it (for example as You would do at the end aof a song. There is no fade out to zeropoint, but after 8 seconds the sound is "killed".
Another unnatural phenomen: Striking a Key, I always hear overtones allthough the sustain-pedal is not
in use. Anyone an idea? Is there an update? I use V1.32
I have no Problem running piano 1 on win XP. My question is: When You play a Key and hold it (as you would if Pressing the sustain Pedal): Can You hear a fade out to zero or does the "Sample"-Sound stopp WITHOUT fade out.???
I also had problems getting any sound from Piano One even thought it seemed to load OK and the keys actually moved when MIDI was coming in.
The problem was that I had put the dll and the resource files together in the same folder (Piano One) in my VST folder.
The solution? I pulled the Piano One folder out onto my desktop, opened it, and dragged the dll back into the VST folder. Then I closed the Piano One folder and dragged that back into my VST folder as well.
The same files are now in my VST folder, but the dll is not inside the Piano One folder anymore. Guess what? Problem solved. Hope this might help other users.
Any one have advice on how to get the presets to be recognized (or how to install them) with OS X vst? I use Live 9 and I can load up the VST but I dont have any options for selecting presets. I also have a windows install and it works perfectly fine (presets and all).
I have copied piano one and its presets into a single folder in the plugins folder. Do I need the presets in a special folder or something?
And I have downloaded the latest version of piano one.
I have encountered the same issue the first time I have tried it.
It's because you have installed an update (certainly the last update of course) BEFORE having first installed the initial version.
So, here is the procedure:
First, delete your file Piano One.dll.
Then check in you folder where is located "Piano One.dll". It contains a subfolder itself named "Piano One".
Delete this subfolder named Piano One. Don't be afraid, You'll lose nothing. If you are afraid of it, simply rename it with other letters at the beginning or at the end. But I assure you that you'll loose nothing. The content of this subfolder is simply necessary parameters for the dll.
Then relaunch Piano One in your host to try it. Normally it will sound, now! Yeah.
And then ONLY AFTER THAT you will be able to install the last update! (for the moment it is this one, the "special edition" of 21 september 2012).
Now don't replace it anymore when installing patches and banks! Of course you will install all the beautiful patches made for Piano One which are available in the "Banks & Patches" tab at the top of this page, but never replace again the dll until the potential creation of a future new update ! Beware !
Many people have the same issue that you encounter and that I have encountered. It was always because we installed the updates of Piano One without having installed first the initial version.
Since the resolution of my issue I really enjoy Piano One! At the point that it is one of my prefered emulations of pianos, making as well as very expensive commercial products.
To all wondering about how to get the presets. Download them, place them in an easy to find folder. Now, I'm using ableton, but there is a small folder icon on the VST interface which, when hovered over, should read "load preset or bank". Click on this, then find your downloaded presets. Just click on them, and boom, you're set.
I have tried to get PianoOne to work, but no sound comes out of it. Any DAW I have tried failed to reproduce a piano sound, though I have installed everything the way it should (and did that several times in several DAWs). Pity, I;ve been looking for some good pianos and the demo sounds great, but there seems to be something odd going on. Not even the default piano is there. Is there any sound in there at all?
I was very excited when I downloaded this and was surprised by the amazing sound it provides. However, there seems to be one fatal flaw. When I play the same note, twice in a row, the sounds stops between them to start the latter note, instead of carrying through. It becomes extremely distracting in pieces involving these repetitions of notes. Is there any way to resolve this issue? Or is it just a problem with Piano One?
I have Piano One on my desktop (windows vista) and it works just fine in FL Studio. I can't get any sound to come out of the plugin on my laptop though. The laptop is Windows 7 and I'm using FL Studio 11 for that as well. Any suggestions?
See my comment dated 14 October 2013 at 7:13pm which is at the previous page. Have you made exactly this procedure on your laptop ?
This problem is so recurrent that it is really a mess and the developer does nothing to definitively rectify this situation. In fact, I think that he doesn't give a goddamn.
So while waiting for his infinite kindness, my advice is now to forget this plugin (good sound but too many problems with the installation everywhere) and to install another. There are many other good and even excellent free piano emulations in VST/AU. Here are some of the best:
All these products are excellent piano emulations and they all are free! I have chosen here acoustic piano emulations and also electric piano emulations and even a clavinet emulation.
My advice for everybody is now to forget Piano One, because there are other free great emulations and as long as his developer continues to ignore our recurrent problem with the installation of Piano One we can prove him that he is loosing many, many, many customers.
Got it. I was afraid it was the issue. My desktop is messed up so I needed to transfer all my old sessions over, some of which included Piano One as one of the sounds. I'll download one of these other pianos you linked though and use the ones I have as well. Thanks a lot.
Poorly written software. I have been a developer for 14 years. its not difficult to make software point itself towards a DAW VST folder with a choice of standalone before opening. Also clearly written instructions for 64-bit win OS & Mac. This should be labeled Beta to stop so many EUs pulling their hair out. lifes to short.
I love Piano One! Its one awesome vst. the sound its just amazing! :) I downloaded some of the presets, i am using Fl Studio 10 Producer Edition, my question is, where do i put the presets in order to use them? When i installed Piano One, i went to the VST folder in fl studio, and it worked, but how do i do it for these presets above? do i put them in the same folder? please help.
Hi, I downloaded Piano One ver 1.01 for windows 64-bit. I want to use presets, so i tried to install the 1.3 version, but it doesn't work. I substituted the 1.01ver .dll by the 1.3ver .dll and now i can't load this plug-in (i'm on Ableton). Is that because the version 1.3 only works on windows 32-bits or because i have to do something more ?
Je suis français moi aussi. As-tu lu mon intervention juste quelques lignes plus haut dans la présente page.
Juste ci-dessous aussi, tu peux cliquer sur "View Previous Page" et tu verras une autre de mes interventions où je donne la procédure complète pour ne pas faire d'erreur dans l'installation de ce VST (que franchement je ne recommande plus du tout, comme tu peux le voir ci-dessus dans la présente page)
Tu peux aussi m'envoyer un PM (ici) si tu préfères. Je te répondrai soit demain lundi soit mardi (si je rentre trop tard lundi)
I'm afraid I can't test it, because I can't succeed in getting any free soundfile... It's obvious that a company show first their payable products, but even after looking for a free sound till the end I don't find anything. Is there a technical problem ? Is it really free ? The French guy that I am miss something ? ^^.
For this plug going right you need to have of course the dll but also a file named "Piano One.mse", wich contains the sound itself... But I remember having troubles finding it a few weeks ago. (I forgot where I finally got it). Have a good day.
Confusing, on YT I see a nice demo of Piano One. When I go to their site, they send me here to download, and instead of Piano One the download gives Neo_piano_mini, thats dóes react to my MIDI-keyboard, but doesn't give any sound in Ableton. The site then isn't clear, talks about piano sets you need*). Well, they try to lure me into buying they say. Will I pay over a hundred dollars to a site that doesn't work, with a demo that doesn't work where dozens of free VST dó work? Guess what?
(at about 21:15)
*) I start to think that this plug in is meant to have no sound, you have to buy the sound, this is only the keyboard interface.
I have downloaded a Piano One from Softpedia, and another from VST4free, and they both do the same thing: they play, but they sound chopped up, like half of the sound is missing. I have hosted the VST on Magix Music Studio 12 Deluxe for Windows XP, which I admit is maybe a little old and not really top of the line, so I'm wondering if you're supposed to have something more proper, something like Cubase, for example.
Hello I have just installed piano one.. and for some reason its not making any sound in the latest version of Logic X.. I don't know why this is not working? Do I need piano sets or something? Does it not get installed with the installer that was provided above? Please HELP would love to be able to see how good this sampling engine is..
I emailed them and they sent me the same bad link http://www.kvraudio.com/product/piano-one-by-sound-magic/downloads You will need to Piano Set to make it sound, here is the downloading link http://www.supremepiano.com/download/Piano1.rar Enjoy it! I emailed them to let them know that the link was bad but I haven't heard back. Does anyone know how to get the 64-bit version?
