I've tried MANY virtual pianos through the years... watched WAY more videos on this topic and spent too much money on piano VST's that were unable to deliver. Go watch some "shootouts" and see this one coming up in first place over and over again. But it doesn't stop there - this comes loaded with a TON of other keyboards, electric pianos, toy pianos, Wurlitzers, Clavs, Rhodes, Harpsichords and just a ton of things in here. I'm like a kid on Christmas everytime I open this up. Unreal.Visit Site
This is the "Big Daddy" of VST's - not really budget-friendly, but a powerhouse when it comes to synth sounds - from layered patches to organ, strings, leads pads and basses, this VST is just absolutely marvelous!Visit Site
These are pretty damn good studio monitors that give a pretty good flat response. Definitly best "bang for your buck" monitors. I am currently running a set of these in my studio and they seem to work well.Visit Site
Arturia did an amazing job on this semi-modular synth - I can't stop playing this thing!!Visit Site
Some of the greatest bands you LOVE have used this mic on stages and studios across the globe since... 1957!
You should mic your amp with this - even try recording vocals with it!!!
