Noire is one of my favorite ones.
How did I forget it?
I almost pulled the trigger on the -50% sale.
I am thinking that one day I will get Pianoteq and never buy another piano.
Gotta say though the Noire felt pianos sound great!

Pianoteq also lets you swap any pedal you like, so you can have a celeste pedal on any of its pianos, which gives a very felt like sound (a celeste pedal put a piece of cloth or similar between hammer and strings).

Forget that my brain wasn't in gear the Sample Science one isn't a soft piano I meant the one from Spitfire Labs

Bosomac has many instrument ensembles, and they can be
blended on tracks to form new hybrid instruments.
The effects ensembles are also stellar 8) hint hint :wink:

Pianobook is a great site.
Thanks for the link!
I am fairly confident that the list has most of the felt pianos available.
