I can't find any good piano sounds. Perhaps one, but it wil not work with my nektar gx49. The sound iy self changes all the time and i can't find any real piano sounds. I haven't used bitwig before and i'am lost. Can i do something so i can get a real piano sound?

Hi Lindqviist, unfortunately BitWig doesn't include a decent acoustic piano sound (neither do any of their competitors).

Usually, good computer-based pianos are extremely heavy and pricey. My current favorite is PianoTeq, a model-based one which is also reasonably priced; Ivory II sounds also pretty nice, but it is super heavy and requires and iLok.

I use the MDA piano which is free (for linux, anyway - maybe for other OSes too):

I feel your pain man - that was one of my biggest complaints when first purchasing BWS 1. I ended up getting Alicia's Keys by Native Instruments - works for my needs!

+1 for Pianoteq. Its made for classical musicians, and sounds and feels beautiful (quicker response for me than the multi-gig sampled instruments). Here's a place to find free piano VST's:
