I thought some would like to see the Authorized Steinway Virtual Concert Grand Users Manual beforehand.

Here is a PDF version. The hard-copy Pro and Standard versions are hardbound.

Happy Reading!

Also a typo on page 16 under recommended keyboards:

A full range 88-note MIIDI keyboard is recommended . . . .

Typo after typo! We need to shed some light on the situation: just who is this Sosnowski guy anyway?!

Just kidding David and Gary. I flipped through most of this and it looks great. Hope to hold the hard copy in my hand before too long.

For the record:

I take absolutely all responsibility for the onerous task of
blaming Gary for any and all of his typos I missed... rofl!

Please, everybody, anything you see like that, do mention
it, and we will catch it on the next pass. It's appreciated!
While I did my best at the task, having a dyslexic for an
editor has its hazards... lol!

Best,

It looks pretty cool, but I did notice another typo. On page 12, it says the basic edition comes with one listening perspectives.

Overall, the steinway seems very cool, and the demos sound fantastic! When I need a piano library it will definitely be high on my list to consider.

David,

The manual was perfect after you reviewed it. In fact, it was too perfect.

Since some people don't RTFM (Read the Fancy Manual) I took the liberty of interjecting a few typos to see if people would actually read it. ;) :D

Right.

Gotcha.

Henceforth?

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Another error:
Page 24 in the breakout quote: "comprised of" - this is creeping into the language but it is poor grammar. Much better is "comprising" (of comes after consist, not comprise).

A set comprises its components; it does not comprise of them.
A set consists of its components; it does not consist them.

There is also a sentence missing: "Warning: this product may induce drooling"

(Apologies if comprising in US English is comprizing - I don't think it is but I haven't checked.)

Not to pretend to Grand Grammarian status, but at least
in American usage, that's always been accepted. See 4. @

So has drooling, too, of course.

From www.dictionary.com

"Since the late 19th century it has also been used in passive constructions with a sense synonymous with that of one of its original meanings “to consist of, be composed ofhttp://cache.lexico.com/dictionary/graphics/luna/thinsp.png”: The United States of America is comprised of 50 states. These later uses are often criticized, but they occur with increasing frequency even in formal speech and writing."


I am a little slow.

I tend to be among the group who critici[s|z]e these "recent" changes. LOL

Oh, I'm pretty stuffy myself, Alan.

When they turned "impact" into a verb I was depressed
and discouraged for months.

I looked up an Australian dictionary and found no reference to the "comprised of" usage (I still think it is yuck).

I tried looking up the oxford dictionary on line and believe it or not they want 195 pounds per annum for a home user to have access!
