Just wanted to share what I found, a fine free piano sample, and/or a soundfont, from Production Voices, the ones responsible for the huge (430 GB) Production Grand. That one is not exactly free ($329 - $399) but the one I'm talking about is free - donationware.

You can get this soundfont, based on a Kawai GS60 grand piano, by clicking the link below. It works as a software piano on the Plogue Sforzando player, but also with Synthesia. There is an SFZ-file in the root folder of the unzipped ZIP-file. Just load it into CoolSoft's VirtualMIDISynth, if you have it, and you're good to go.

The Production Grand has only 12 velocity layers, according to http://www.productionvoices.com/product ... n-grand-2/

12 velocities pedal up samples
12 velocities pedal down samples
12 velocities release samples

The free Estate Grand LE actually has up to 10, but it's only 650 MB in size.

I See it sounds good and versatile the huge size is due to the multimic records the price is justified regarding the gear and the works.
