Default How did EW get this Bosi demo sound?

At

http://www.soundsonline.com/pianos > Audio Demos tab

way down the page, EW kindly provides some Classical Demos. The Debussy "Reverie" sample has a beautiful rich, dark sound to it. Especially in the opening bars. To go there directly, it's here:

http://media.soundsonline.com/wav/20...%20Reverie.wav

I realize this is undoubtedly mastered, as well as mixed/tweaked by pros, but I'd like to get as close as possible. Simply adjusting the lid opening, ambiance and stereo width in the player is not doing it.

Any good guesses what else might be needed?

Thanks.

It was a combination of the mid mic and the far mic plus so cal hall reverb from Spaces.

THANK YOU.

And is there some EQ-ing on that track? 'Cause one of the lovely things about this piece is that it has a rich bottom but no mud even in the busy parts - rare to achieve without some EQ or mastering magic.

No EQ.

Thanks for posting. I got the pianos but wasn't impressed at first and haven't touched them since, after reading this I gave it another try and found I've been missing out. As you say that demo is impressive, and knowing the settings for it helps.

Maybe EastWest should consider producing some videos on how to get the most from your EWQL instruments. The walk-throughs, like this one:

are great at showing the features, but a bit of direction on how to use those features to best effect would be very helpful for newbies like myself.

Great idea. I've enjoyed the David Earl walkthroughs, but him or somebody getting into practical usage in a workflow, talking through how to get a good result using CC's, mic choices and such would be a big help.
