Hello. Thank you so much for doing this. I have been using your configuration since 2 months already. Its so GOOD. THANK YOU!
Question: I thought about using the config for classical for improving my piano improvisations (i use samples with a keyboard, not recording of a real piano) but it seems its too "excesive". Is there a config that would work with anything tought it doest improve that much the audio? It literaly blows me my headphones. I changed some things on the EQ and got better results but since you are a pro i ask for your advice.
Here is a sample: http://www.goear.com/listen/6aef2dc/h-gg
I don't even recommend using the other presets, those are just a "bonus" and not necessarily up-to-date. The only two configs I can recommend is the "Default" ones, forward and laid-back. The other just has "genre" specific FR adjustments like with classical I assiociate V-shape (important for highs to have presence for the airiness) and slight bass boost to give more "drama" for the drums and having slight pushed back midrange creates an illusion of larger soundstage as it's not so in-your-face. Additionally reverb was set one step higher for it (reverb adds to creating large soundstage). That preset should be only tested with fullblown orchestra music, for invidual instruments it doesn't fit. I personally only use the forward and laid-back configs no matter what music I listen to as those are made to be balanced and therefore to me it sounds best but I added specific genre presets for fun exaggerating slightly the parts of the music that is important.
For you it's not really what you want for piano. The "Default: Balanced (forward) config is what you want to use.
