: : The electric piano sounds are the weakest part of the QS soundset. If you have a card it would be wise to load your own samples. If you're interested I'll try to locate the web site that has this sample. It still isn't as good as the Rhodes on my MicroPiano but it is still an improvement.

: : : : Can anyone help me get a great sounding electric piano sound? The "EP & Strings" patch (4, USER) is a bit too soft for my taste. I have eliminated its string sound from it.

: : : Try QS Tines in the preset1 bank.You can edit the velocity to open up the filter some more.Gives it some extra expressiveness (remember to save to a user location).If that doesn't float your boat, try one of the acoustic piano programs, enter edit mode, and simply scroll through the elec. piano voice group until you find a voice or combination of voices you like.After that, you can add mod,effects etc. to taste.
: : : Yes, you too can be a synth programmer!!! Have fun.

: I disagree- the Elec. pianos are not the weakest part of the QS soundset, in fact, they are pretty good compared to most of the competitors sounds.You may like the Micro-piano's Rhoades sound(I don't), but listen to any other synth's e.p.'s and compare. The weakest sounds in the QS are the strings-they suck!

I like the "RayzRoadz" (Pre1#5) patch.. had some interesting results playing around w/
filters, raw samples, 5th's etc. Nice for jazz chords.

You can make the hi-velocity attack more gradual by doubling the raw samples from
2 to 4 (sounds 1& 2 = Soft Roads; sounds 3 & 4 = BriteRoads) and edit the velocity
curves on each sound to respond to soft & loud accordingly.
