While you are at the Post Piano page, check out the "Old Lady" and
"Bosendorfer 290" libraries.  I have these, and they sound awesome
with LS.  (Of course, not _all_ the instruments in the gig files work,
but there are both wet and dry instruments on both that work
perfectly.)  If you want to get these, be sure to get both the GS2 +
GS3 libraries. (Available on one DVD for $50 US, and a steal at that!)
 Some restrictions apply. See store for details.  Not available in
counties in Oregon beginning with the letter L...  blah blah blah.
