Akoustik Piano fuses the sampled sound, expressiveness and playability of three of the most reputable grand pianos – the Steinway D, Bechstein D 280 and Boesendorfer 290 Imperial – as well as the charismatic Steingraeber 130 vintage upright piano into one application. Akoustik Piano covers the entire range of piano sounds and styles, transfusing the sonic characteristics and subtle tonal nuances of all four into your computer – the perfect complement for studios, rehearsal rooms, schools, stages and clubs.

What others are saying:

good, but what's the point?

created by native instruments of germany, but i think it was made with perversity by the natives of central f--kupistan.

unplayable unless you have much hearing loss in the mid-range.

try synthogy ivory . i bought akoustik p. because the demos sounded better. it didn't occur to me that they could screw it up so badly.

this piano has probably the best sound on the market. do not buy it, do>>>not>>>buy>>>it --if you have the slightest interest in sensitive expression. it is hopelessly uneven; some notes jump out at you, others are much too dull. the entire midrange is overpowering, the bass much too weak, etc., etc.

at their forum ther are numerous complaints about this. if they fix the complaints i have sent them, i will post a new review here.

it has potential- if they fix it.
