What am I missing.. Surely I dont have to purchase an add on for Grand Piano sounds? I am a newbie to this so please go lightly on me :)

    Hii @ciscodudewan welcome to the forum!

    S88 comes with Komplete Select, which doesn't include THE GRANDEUR unfortunately. You can see a list of all instruments included in Select here:

    Compare Komplete 13

    If you want more instruments or libraries, you can always buy separately or upgrade to Komplete 13. πŸ™‚

    oh man that sucks...you would figure they would throw in a grand piano sound for the price of this thing. Thinking maybe I should have bought the SL88 studio controller and Keyscapes?

    Komplete Select does come with a piano sound, it's The Gentleman. See the table that Kaiwan linked to above.

    Yes but unfortunately it is only upright piano and not the grand piano sounds. I ended up using my Addictive keys pack for the Grand Piano emulation.. Just wish Native Instruments would have included one with the S88 keyboard package.

    What really bites is that I bought KOMPLETE 9 (32 bit) many, many years ago and it came with many awesome grand piano sounds (Berlin, Vienna and NY Philharmonic grands, each with several varieties). I still have the DVDs. Somewhere along the way, they removed those sounds from the KOMPLETE library.

    Maybe a copyright issue... who knows?

    I still have it installed on an ancient Windows laptop so I can get to the Grand piano sounds when I need to.

    I think, you can install it on a new computer and activate it using Natice Access. Those were replaced by other grand pianos, I guess. That is probably why they are not available to buy anymore....
