I had the opportunity to test the Nord Grand and the Nord Piano 5 a couple weeks ago, and was a bit meh 🫤 

As an owner of both Nord Stage 3 ( but with the HP keys) and a Legend 70’s Compact, I am still looking for a piano for home use.

The Legend was meant to be it, but it ended up in my band rig.

 

In the above video, I think the Legend seems to have a more full sounding Grand, but the EP’s seems very similar to my ears.

I am leaning to a Seven for my home use, as I also have an old Yamaha CP70 I could tune up and replace some strings, and could do for the more acoustic feel I some times miss. Personally I love the mechanical action on the CP70, and normally used it unplugged at home, action was more important than the sound for me.

 

BTW Viscount just released a system update to the Legend recently where they introduced some (adjustable)natural detuning for the EP’s, some fix of the general velocity and 2 upgraded Acoustics piano samples.

I installed it yesterday before rehearsal with my band and the EP’s came to live. Can’t tell much about the AP’s, didn’t had time to test them out, but the dynamics was clearly improved.

here are the two new acoustic pianos for the Seven.  Pretty impressive:

these sound good !

How much sample memory is available in Crumar Seven ?

 

When using Mojo(61) or Gemini (p.ex. w/ DMC 122),- are the sampled Crumar/GSi instruments usable too ?

Is sample memory size different from Crumar Seven ?

I believe the same samples are used in the Gemini module as the Seven and I have both samples loaded in my Gemini.  It's nice to have two high quality sampled pianos; and it really addressed the weakness of the Gemini (and Seven) which were the lack of top tier acoustic piano samples. I still have 1 Gig of open memory left in my Gemini even after loading these two pianos.  

 

In the latest firmware update for the Mojo, Crumar writes:  ".. Mojo 61 brings in the new improvements that have been made to the Tine and Reed EP models, the new 3-band EQ and also opens the doors to the future ability to replace the internal acoustic piano sound with a new one ..".
