Does the G2M work with piano sounds?

Although the G2M can be used to play any sound (even non-musical sounds), certain instruments do not sound natural when the pitch is adjusted by pitch-bend. Piano is a good example. The combination of the envelope of the piano sound and the listener's expectation for a "straight" tone that does not vary in pitch mean that when the G2M is used to control there instruments it can sound unnatural, and sometimes unpleasant.

To play piano sounds with the G2M you need to be careful not to bend strings or add vibrato.

For best results, stick with instruments which are naturally monophonic such as brass, wind, monosynths, etc.
