What an amazing instrument! Avid's Velvet electric piano virtual instrument faithfully reproduces the sound and feel of classic Rhodes and Wurlitzer electric pianos and packages them nicely in an easy-to-use graphic interface. You get over 100 presets, and sounds can easily be tweaked with controls for overall timbre, dynamic response, and velocity curve of each model. Velvet gives you a ton of built-in processors to tailor the sound to your desires with a preamp featuring tube overdrive, compression, and 3-band EQ, along with distortion, wah/filter, modulation, and Echoplex delay. Play great classic electric pianos right into your Pro Tools rig with Avid's Velvet!

Velvet employs proprietary dynamic modeling, a unique combination of optimized sampling and modeling techniques, allowing it to achieve incredibly accurate recreations 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. 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 recreate a truly realistic electric piano feel.

Use one of the over 100 included professional-sounding electric piano presets or create something unique. Dialing up the perfect electric piano sound is easy. 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 like the originals, allowing you to easily modify sounds at the twist of a knob or notch of a slider.

Velvet's 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.
