20 piano sample libraries compared


Here's a quick comparison between 20 different piano sample libraries. It is using a 35 seconds cue, moving from D1 to G5, featuring both short and long notes, with pedal on and off.


No mixing involved nor external processing. Just a maximizer on the output to bring everything to a comfortable listening level.
