AIR Velvet 2 Electric Piano Virtual Instrument at a Glance:
  • Dynamic modeling gives you great feel
  • Realistic electric piano sounds and features
  • Easy to use, just like the originals
  • Powerful preamp section
Dynamic modeling gives you great feel

AIR Velvet 2 uses a proprietary dynamic modeling technique, a unique combination of optimized sampling and digital modeling, to provide you with incredibly accurate re-creations of classic electric piano sounds with superior playing feel and dynamic response. You can even pull off sounds you'd normally only hear when playing the real instrument, from the faintness of the lightest pianissimo to the note splat of the strongest fortissimo.

Realistic electric piano sounds and features

Velvet 2 provides unprecedented control over the sound characteristics with such realism it's as if you were playing a real electric piano. Turn up the tube drive controls in the preamp section to warm up your tone. Adjust the timbre, dynamic response, and velocity curve to customize the playing feel. Craft your ideal sound using the built-in multi-effects processing engine, and adjust the tuning. Even mix in the sound of pedal and other keyboard mechanical noises to re-create a truly realistic electric piano feel.

Easy to use, just like the originals

Whether you want to use one of the over 350 included professional-sounding electric piano presets or create something unique, dialing up the perfect electric piano sound is easy. Just select a preset and tweak away! The plug-in's graphic user interface is reminiscent of classic electric pianos, making it familiar if you've ever played the real deal. And its controls work virtually almost like the originals, allowing you to easily modify sounds at the twist of a knob or notch of a slider.

Powerful preamp section

Velvet 2 features a built-in preamp and effects to add a contemporary spin on a classic. Its powerful preamp section lets you shape your electric piano sound, and includes tube overdrive, compression, and a custom 3-band EQ with a parametric mid band. Process your sound further using a wide range of distortion, wah/filter, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tape delay effects - modeled after the classic originals - to emulate a vintage sound or forge something new. You can even capture the perfect vibe by adding tremolo and autopan effects, which are modeled after those on the original electric pianos.

Great software instrument with amazing sounds

This is a truly amazing software instrument plugin with just about the most realistic electric piano sounds I've ever heard. I've enjoyed it for years and have just upgraded to the AAX version for Pro Tools 11. Highly recommended!!
