Madeon confesses to this being his favorite VST in his reddit AMA. Best of all, it's a free download!
In this email from Mat Zo from February 2017 detailing the studio gear and plugins he uses, he lists the mda ePiano Software Piano Plugin (which is available as a free download).
i like making music I don't have pictures to show you now but I will soon when I become famous
This is an excellent VST. After hearing that it was Madeon's favorite, I looked into it and realized it's potential. It's not as high quality as something you would hear in a Kontakt library for instance, but it is great to start with.
I used to have this back to when there weren't a lot of options for VST Rhodes and wurli plugins, but the Fruity Keys sounds so similar I never bothered getting it again. Since I pretty much just use FL producer now for programming over Cubase I stick with as many native FL plugins as possible for simple jobs like this. I have to say, you don't gain a lot in sound quality by going NI for Rhodes sounds. No one manages to simulate the real magic of an electromechanical keyboard, so a CPU friendly plugin like this is fine for most applications.
I see your point. I used Kontakt as a reference because typically they are high quality sample libraries, but I honestly have never really looked into Kontakt libraries for Rhodes myself; it was just off the top of my head XD. I've never been a fan of FL Keys though, I've never liked the sound.
Until I got Addictive Keys, this and 4Front Piano were my go-to piano VSTs.
