Yes I appreciate that. A lot of googling yesterday brought up
Scrolling down a bit, you come to "Synthesizing Pianos"
According to this page, creating the sound of an acoustic piano on a softsynth

Be that as it may though, I think perhaps my patches could be improved with a

Just trying to get the knowhow in creating patches.
