I have FINALLY found the piano sound I have been searching for !!!!! It’s on this Yamaha PLG-150 AP expansion....it’s the second patch (CFBrite).....I saved that patch to USER 1 as the user voice bank in the PLG is always the first thing you see and you have to manually switch to the preset banks.......

I have spent hundreds of dollars (literally) buying expansion boards and sample voice libraries and at last the search is over !!!!!!

I installed it in my Motif rack (the original, not ES) and my quest is over !!!!!! It is perfection to my ears !!!!!! (the samples are made from a $300,000 Yamaha CFIIIS 10 foot concert grand)…

I installed it in my Motif rack instead of my Motif ES6 as I never want to take my ES6 out of the house again (it’s my recording studio).....

This piano sound had no reverb default so I changed the reverb setting from a 0 to a 3 so there’s just a tiny bit of reverb .....perfect !!!!

NOTE: Save your PLG board to the Motif after you install it and you have more settings (like voice name) available among other things ....there is a save PLG and load PLG area in settings....once you save it, the name of the PLG board is listed.....

This demo was recorded playing on 76 unweighted keys (I start out with playing all 76 keys).....bear with the playing
(I just had shoulder surgery and my accuracy is a bit off)....this is the patch I mentioned and it will show you what it sounds like (this recording doesn’t sound as good as the real thing):

UPDATE: I found out that the distortion I was hearing on the following MP3 was from the laptop I was playing it on because when I played it on my other laptop there was no distortion .....if you are hearing distortion and want to hear what it really sounds like, either play it on another computer or burn it to a CD and play it on a separate CD player....
