This really reveals some of the dynamic range of this most excellent Yamaha S700 Grand Piano sample I’ve loaded into my XS8. It really is reason enough, by itself, to get one of these Yamaha keyboards! I’ve embedded it here for the sake of the higher quality audio and video as opposed to what you see and hear on my Youtube.com page.
Being a previous owner of the S90es qualifed me to participate in a “Loyalty Program” which entitled me to receive the same awesome S700 samples I had in the S90es (although I think there’s other ways to get it).
I can’t seem to find any good information on the history of the Yamaha S700 Grand Piano, but I did find one reference suggesting it was a 7′ 6″ model they sold in 1991.
