In November of 2013, Madeon tweets, "I would pay anything for a great acoustic piano with a transpose function." A fan tweets him back in French, saying that Alicia Key's plugin for NI KONTAKT is quite realistic. Madeon responds, "Yes c'est mon plug-in par défaut pour les pianos," which translates to, "Yes that's my default plug-in for pianos."more
On this video she's presenting her signature plugin from Native Instruments which is a plugin that reproduces the sampled sounds of her favorite piano, Yamaha C3 NEO as a virtual instrument, so she and anyone can carry and use that amazing instrument sound anywhere.

Mentioned in this June 3, 2015 Twitter post. > **Approaching Nirvana:** What’s the best Piano VST/AU? We use EWQL Pianos which is awesome but only has 4 pianos and sometimes I feel like I’m burnt out on them… /A **Hellberg:** @ApproachNirvana for "real sounding" pianos I use Alicia's Keys a lot" Prior to this, Hellberg had stated his use of Alicia's Keys on "The Girl" in the song's official Splice project annotations (released May 1, 2015). > Piano Chords: The whole project started from the chords. I had written the chord progression of the entire track before I did anything else in the track. The piano is Alicia's Keys in Kontakt 5. Not much else on there I think except a ValhallaRoom reverb that I use a lot. > Piano Bassnotes: I separated the lower notes from the the rest of the piano chords because I wanted them to be much more reverb-y than the higher notes which are pretty dry and unprocessed. The lower notes are also played by another VST than the higher ones, the lower one being TruePianos and the higher ones being Alicia's Keys in Kontakt 5.more
Featured As One Of The To VST In Equipboard. I Can Say That The Rumors Are True. For Me Piano Is The Most Important Part In A Song Whether Is Pop, Ballad, Orchestral Or Even EDM Music Like Trances Because It Brings Out The Emotion Or The True Meaning Of The Music. I Have A Lot Piano VST Such As Arturia Piano V, 4Front True Piano, And Some Other Kontakt Piano Library. For Me Alicia Key Is Amount My Top 5 Piano VST Because Of It's Sound Which Bring More Clarity To The High And The Soft Side I Does't Produce Too Much "Cloudy" Kind Of Sound.
Has a unqiue and nice sound! Usually I turn the velocity down quite low and compress it + reverb, which gives it a timber I like. Can definitiely recommend if you're looking to widen your piano sound arsenal.
