How are those Piano's a "bit out of tune"? Are some notes a bit flat or sharp, or are all notes equally too flat or sharp, or are higher notes more out of tune (sharper) than the lower and middle notes (= stretched tuning)?
Have you used the Tuner insert effect to check? If not, could you?
It would have helped and may still help if you could upload a few seconds of sound of your "detuned" piano; now nobody can hear what you (apparently) hear.
Settings appear to be okay, even though there's a tiny bit of LFO routed,via ctrl 1, meaning you'd have to move the modwheel to get any detuning (vibrato, actually), so I'm pretty sure it is not the cause of your problem. Still, better turn that off. Piano's are not supposed to have vibrato (or pitchbend).

Hi...Thanks for the reply
I was trying to see how to upload an MP3 file...But cannot find....Please let me know your email id...will send to you....i recorded all notes of C Major...When I use a tuner....I see none of them (except 'E') being on exactly tune...all are around +20 cents more....but 'F' is 'E' + 20...I noticed 'F' sounds wierd in other instruments too (EXS samples)....I used a Kontakt sample...all the notes are exactly on tune....
I did not understand the LFO control you were asking me to reset...Can you please help to elaborate which part (paramter/section) in the screen shot are you referring to...

Hi there, I really cannot tell what is wrong with your piano, the LFO via Ctrl 1 to Pitch modulator is set too low (at zero, even) to have any effect. It is the second "item" in the modulation matrix, the black band in the middle of the EXS24, with the source/via/destination parameters. But, I don't think that is involved in it now.
I just opened that same sound, and here it has the same settings as yours, but it is in tune.
You may have somehow altered your master tuning. Check that at File>Project Settings>Tuning.
If that's not it, you could send me a (truncated) copy of your project.
Steps: 1. do a "save as", 2. remove any tracks and regions that are not relevant to the problem, 3. Save, 4. Close the project, 5. rightclick its icon in the Finder and choose compress to make a .zip of it, and 6. send that to my email account: artflywork at yahoo dot com.

Hi.....I am confused....All the Piano sounds in EXS ( Steinway,Studio,Yamaha etc) sound ok now, with tuner showing EXACT pitch. I did not change any thing.
But when I was working on some project, suddenyly noticed some thing is wrong with the glockenspiel. When I checked with tuner it showed +10 for all notes. I sent a mail to you with the Project file. In the bounces folder there is an MP3 of Glockenspiel(which sounds off) and elec guitar(tht is perfect).
I guess the AIFF samples would be the priblem. I just played the A# in the samples folder for glockenspiel....it shows A# + 10 cents. but I wonder how come piano sounds were wierd all the while and suddenly they sound ok.

Thanks Erik...The problem got resolved after I changed the tuning to equal temparment....earlier it was set to the key of the song...I verified Tuning settings...but thought setting to A should be ok...just now changed it to equal temparement...every thing si fine...thks...
