Please make the plugin genre a piano.
« on: November 14, 2018, 09:15:44 am »
Please make the plugin genre a piano.
Is this a synth?
Is it a special strategy to escape the competition in the piano genre?
Since there are so many plug-ins of synths, I think that it is better to improve them.
Or is it still a measure for not being a completed piano sound source?

is Piano V2 a synthesizer?

This is my understanding.

Piano V2 is modeling different pianos. It's a Piano plug-in, but just like any other software or hardware pianos that use psysical modeling synthesis to create the sound, then it's in a way a syntheziser.
Any piano that's not a real piano is in a way a syntheziser, including the sampled pianos, as sampled pianos also use some kind of synthesis.
But when sold, one will not call for example Piano plug-ins for synths. A string keyboard is'nt called a synth either and so on. Only plug-ins, that we call synthezisers is sold as synths. But in a way they all are. SOme are just more or less specialised to emulate a certain known instrument or something like that.

If you don't wan't any synthesis used, then you need a true acoustic piano, and only use it without adding anything electronic - including any effects. One can even ask, if a acoustic instrument truely is acoustic, after it has been recorded, and then being played back, as any electronic equiptment including recording equiptment and playback systems add something to the sound.


There are different kinds of synthesis. Anything that can be used for it.

There are many plug-ins of synthesizers, so it is difficult to select them  in the same genre.
There are not many piano plug-ins.

Looking at the interface, it is clear that he is trying to express a real piano.

If this is a synthesizer, I think that you should pack many functions that you can enjoy more. I am making suggestions for these in other post as well.
