  1. Not half bad. A couple of the CFX demos show off its brighter side, which deserves a thumbs-up. Its not going to unseat Ivory, but for the price, it seems quite playable. It also depends on your actual controller and how much of a serious pianist you are, as opposed to a mere dabbler for the flavor here and there. If you’re going to do a lot of classical soloing, you probably won’t let Soundcloud demos decide things, but there’s an interesting world of NOT-$500+ programs to be had. I’m sniffing around Pianoteq, but I’m going to weigh this one, too. Some people only need General MIDI, some only need a few VAs and some need Vienna Symphony Orchestra. Full disclosure: I am not yet a VSO candidate.

  2. XLN audio’s addictive keys is probably as good as most of the other hyped piano V S T’S. This package went on sale for 50? off about 4 times last year. The drawback for me with XLN audio products is you have to have an internet connected computer to authorize the software. The same with Air Music Tech products. You can buy one of their products and upgrade to their entire product line for about $150. For those who don’t know. You get pianos, strings, synthesizers and a music sampler that plays rex, waves, kontact , exs (I think that’s the name). Lot of bang for your buck here. I won’t know how these programs sound till I get computer internet. A $250 package deal sounds good to me. $99 for one plugin and $150 upgrade for the entire package. Go have a look if you’re in the vst market.
