Incredible piano samples from Art Vista!

After I bought and downloaded TruePianos I came across Art Vista’s fantastic piano samples Virtual Grand Piano and Malmsjö GVI. Malmsjö (pronounced morlm-sheu, silent ‘r’, sorry it’s hard to render Swedish vowel sounds with the English alphabet) is the name of a now-defunct Swedish piano maker. The grand piano which was recorded was made in 1894. The Malmsjö GVI samples are very impressive. You can read more about the way the piano was sampled and how the different velocity samples were stacked here.

The Roland A-80 MIDI controller keyboard was well-known for its good weighted action. This plus the Malmsjö GVI will make a very very good digital piano for ultra-late-night practice!
