how does this piano sound ? Is it currently the best sounding large free piano sample ?
I have seen that on that webpage there are other samples too like harpsichord, organ etc,
but not in GIG format (kontakt,sf2). Could someone ask the authors and ask if we can turn it into GIG files ?
It is nice see that finally more higher quality free samples are being released.
I was thinking the same thought. I'm currently downloading the Maestro (a Yamaha will do for now to cure my Steinway abstinence) but it's dog slow (about 35K/s) so a better distribution infrastructure is needed as well. One idea I have would be to use Amazon S3 (I'm already a user of it for other stuff) to store and seed the archives and then only offer access to it via bittorrent (something S3 has built in as a feature but I've never used before) and ask people to seed as much as possible.
