Q1. "Is the demo of someone playing the real piano, or of the samples being played from a midi controller?"
A. The demo is of someone playing the samples from a midi controller keyboard, as it sounds when it reaches you.

Q2. "Why would I need an imperfect sample library?!"
A. Click here to find out!

Q3."Do you have a VST or Gigastudio format?"
A. Yes, a VST and AU player, the "ISP", is available for Mac and PC.

Q4. "Is Kontakt Player the same as Kontakt?"
A. No. Kontakt Player is not the same as Kontakt.
Kontakt Player is a piece of software that is locked to the samples you purchased it with. To use the Braunschweig Upright, full Kontakt is required.

Q5. "What is the size of the file, gigabytes etc. ?"
A. The compressed download size of the Braunschweig Upright is about 2GB. The (Pro) version is about 8GB. These file sizes double once you have them installed on your machine.

Q6. "Was every single key sampled (Black and white keys) ? "
A. Yes.

Q7. "Are there different mic positions, close, far etc. ?"
A. The mic positions are all about 2 inches from the main piano board, at far left and right for a wide stereo view. These have been mixed at about 39x pan (127 being complete pan), which allows for easy placement in industry pop and classical recordings.

Q8. "What kind of processing did you use for your demo, or is it dry ?"
A. No processing was used in the SchimmelUprightDemo.mp3, it is as the instrument sounds when it reaches you.

Q9. " Is the purchase a downloadable purchase or does it have to be shipped ? "
A. It's downloadable instantly. Once payment is received, you will receive a link which will be active for 48 hours. If you need more time, just let me know.

Q10. "do you ship to the US?"
A. The samples are available for download. However, I can ship a DVD-R to the US if preferred, it's £6 postage.

Q11. " I have downloaded the piano, thanks. Each of the WinRAR files unzip to give the same 1.39 GB of data. Am I missing something??"
A. This is perfectly normal- you are not missing anything. You need both files to unzip the entire package. When you run either one of them, winrar reads the contents from both parts.

Q12. "Are there any EXS and Kontakt instruments updates?"
A. Yes. Click here to download Instruments updates. If you have any instrument update requests, email info@imperfectsamples.com

Q16. "Can use any software to unpack my files? Is WinRar or UnRarX really needed? "
