Hello everyone.

: b) If you really download a whole piano on your QS you will get a set of 88 stereo samples (depending on the sample provider)
: This means that you have to arrange 176 mono samples, two for each key.
: The QS is only able to 'split' the keyboard to 16*4=64 different samples, unless you program your piano using drum sounds.
: In addition, the QS may not be able to work with that many samples (I never tried that)

You're wrong on this one. The new SoundBridge let's you burn SampleCell files (i.e. multisamples) to your cards. You could design a SC file with 88 key regions for the left sound, another such one for the right sound, assign them to sounds 1 and to (panned left and right) and you're done. If you need to use two cards, burn the left one to card A and the right one to card B. Should work IMHO (never tried, though).
Perhaps you can also get a Sample CD in SampleCell format, which would save you from doing the multisampling yourself.

Hope this helps,
