Everyone has different preferences and priorities, so to make choosing easier we have attempted to give a frank review of the products. Let's start with the XLN Addictive Keys Studio Collection. If you're looking to create your own signature sounds and experiment with your creativity, XLN’s VST can help you do just that. It brings you an incredible selection of sounds with equally high-quality effects. You can use filters, EQ filters, reverb, distortion, tremolo, chorus, and many more. XLN used the best of the best, testing ten different pianos before selecting the highest quality out of the bunch to sample for this collection.
The second product we will be examining in this comparison is the Spectrasonics Keyscape Virtual Keyboard Collection. Based on the LA Custom C7 Grand Piano and others like it, this collection of samples has an expansive sound library. Regardless of the genre you play, this VST will help you create some amazing tunes, whether you compose in a retro style or prefer playing contemporary music.
There's another big advantage that comes with this VST. The MyCloud technology lets you connect with your VST and work from anywhere. It automatically synchronizes your work (like presets and memos), regardless of the device you use. This allows you to work on the go from all of your devices and keep everything organized and safe.
It can clog up your CPU a little, but the tones you'll produce will definitely make up for it. If you want, you can even use it with the Omni 2. However, on its own this VST is more than good enough - you'll have access to most of the piano sounds you could ever need.
