so… they transformed a piano that was less than 20MB (all the ROM on k2500 is 8MB and in K2600 is 12MB) in a 1.4 Giga of samples?

They sampled at 24 bit for each patch. Some of the patches will have some VAST processing. As I mentioned, often a filter or exciter is applied. So, if you’re just sampling a preset you will want some velocity switching if that processing is mapped to velocity. If you’re creating bread and butter samples like this then it’s probably easier to autosample than to spend time trying to replicate the processing in Kontakt. Hence, big sample libraries.
