Digidesign's Velvet: The Test - Tines in Velvet wrapping
Electric Pianos never seem to go out of style; and because they’ve now gone virtual, Digidesign has decided to come out with their own version of these timeless instruments.

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.
I am currently running Digidesign Velvet on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run the software in Apple Logic most of the time and will sometimes rout it to Pro Tools LE 7.4 if I so desire. I am able to run the software smoothly and stably within this configuration and have never had any problems in this category at all. As long as you have an adequate system to run your sequencer on, I can't imagine that you would have much trouble running Digidesign Velvet, but it really depends on what you are running...
I've been using Digidesign Velvet for a few months and it has become one of my new favorite electronic piano virtual instruments. It has a very sweet sound and sounds very similar to the real thing. I like the fact that you get so many different parameters to work with as it really extends the palette of sounds that this software has to offer. The price is very reasonable, so if you are looking for a great sounding and versatile virtual instrument when it comes to the electronic piano, Digidesign Velvet is a must have.
