Being a classical pianist (and recording engineer) I'm curious if MIDI piano data includes pedal use in the note durations. After all with acoustical pianos the note duration is linked to the damper movement, which is controlled by both the key and right pedal. The upper 1.5 octaves don't have dampers at all, so I'm a bit sceptical about the use of (performer's) MIDI data for this purpose.
