But in the end of the day: I have to put more effort into getting the sound

only support FLOSS, I also want to make music that sounds *great* not just
*good*. If paying for instruments like Modartt's
Pianoteq,
then I'll do that. It sounds *wonderful*, not like a 90's MIDI Dance piano.

With that said, I'll get back to reading the rest of this thread :)
