Hello there,
I am pretty new in using mulab or any daw so this question for the most of you might sound beginnerish I guess.
When I tried to make a first song with mulab I wanted to include the classic piano. Unfortunately when using it it sounded strange: No sustain and it sounded very hard.
Is there a way to get a sustain and a softer sound like for example the virtual piano from https://recursivearts.com/virtual-piano/ (https://recursivearts.com/virtual-piano/) . Is there a tutorial about doing sth like that?

The included classic piano indeed is a basic piano sound that only uses a couple of samples.
To create a top notch piano sound it takes a lot of samples and hence the package size would be huge. That's why it's good that there are vst plugins that specialize in piano sound so everyone can choose his own flavor, and so users that don't need a prop piano also don't have to download a huge package with piano samples they don't need. I hope you see what i mean.

Try inserting a 1P Lowpass filter (Modules->Audio Processors) in one of the effect slots at the bottom right of the Classic Piano multi-sampla, then tweak the cutoff until it sounds right.

About the sustain: In the "Amp" section, raise the "S" parameter to max.
