EASTWEST's STEINWAY B Grand Piano was recorded in Switzerland by the producer of the critically acclaimed FIVE STAR Sample Library THE ULTIMATE PIANO COLLECTION, Olivier Truan. Almost every note was sampled in 6 stereo velocities, 3 with the pedal up, and 3 with the pedal down. 528 stereo samples were recorded in total, without any looping (up to 2 minute decays). The piano was digitally recorded and edited direct to disc to achieve the highest possible quality. Extra care was taken in respect to A/D conversion, recording levels, and dynamic range to guarantee the highest bit-fidelity.

88 keys x 6 = 528

So if "528 stereo samples were recorded in total...", then why does it say " 'Almost' every note was sampled in 6 stereo velocities..." ? It should say "All 88 keys where recorded..." with out the "almost".

Just an observation, no harm intended. :)
