Digidesign Velvet : stompboxjon's user review
"couldnt ask for more"
Digidesign Velvet can run on a mac or a pc. If you are using a pc it can run on xp or vista computers and if you are using a mac its only for Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.6 intel only. So those are things that you will need to keep in mind before you even think of purchasing it, especially if you are a mac because I know several people that had some major compatibility issues with it on their mac, there are some work arounds though to get it to work but it will take some patience and most of use don’t want to be patient we want to play with our new vst. When using Velvet you will get a realistic electric piano sound naturally , you wont have to get in and start eq ing a lot and changing the way that it sounds. Right out of the box you will get sounds that you are very happy with and they will sound real and like the came from a real electric piano. There are also some controls where the pre amps are that can really bring your sound more too life and make it thicker and warmer instantly. You will have a lot of control over how the piano’s sound by tweaking some of the easily visible on screen options and sliders. You can modify sounds so easy, that’s one of the great things about this software.
It was quick and easy to install, just keep in mind what kind of system you have on mac, with pc you will be ok either way unless you are using an old machine. But with a mac it can get tricky.
There are 210 electrical sounding pianos that are ready to be used right out of the box. They will sound great, and you can select a preset and start tweaking it and come up with some amazing sounding electric pianos that no one has ever heard. It is very easy to get some good sounding pianos , and make them sound different when using dig designs velvet.
