Hmm, that almost sounds like an artifact of listening to audio through
laptop speakers. They all make the bass sound too quiet, at least to me.

Yamaha uses samples of real acoustic instruments, plus their wave guide
software. I think most synthesizers these days essentially do the same
thing. Didn't someone on the list mention an article about how it's
impossible to synthesize a true piano sound?
