Thank you :)

I know that the quality of the grand piano recordings (without reverb)
won't become better ;). I wonder if I would benefit for an additional
recorded reverb, assumed this will be an external stand alone reverb,
but an internal Linux reverb.

Anyway, I'll keep 44.1 KHz and 16 bit. Should JACK be forced to use 16
