Native Instruments Akoustik Piano VST (MAC)

Grand Slam
Akoustik Piano fuses the sampled sound, expressiveness and playability of three of the most reputable grand pianos - the Steinway D, Bechstein D 280 and Boesendorfer 290 Imperial - as well as the charismatic Steingraeber 130 vintage upright piano into one application. Akoustik Piano covers the entire range of piano sounds and styles, transfusing the sonic characteristics and subtle tonal nuances of all four into your computer - the perfect complement for studios, rehearsal rooms, schools, stages and clubs.

Three first class grands and one upright in a single, compact software instrument

Under The Lid
Akoustik Piano is the new benchmark in sound quality, capturing the full body and feel of the originals with unprecedented authenticity. The latest recording technology as well as a specially developed microphone setup was used for all 4 pianos. The result is a uniquely warm, transparent and flexible sound that delivers the same distinctive character of each individual piano in exacting detail and can still be adjusted to meet specific needs.

Intelligent Ivory
Akoustik Piano plays and responds exactly as real pianos do. The keys were sampled at varying velocities and great care was taken to capture the entire sustain and release phases. The brand new Layer Morphing Technology generates a seamless dynamic gradient. The characteristic resonances caused by use of the pedals can be adjusted as can the subtle mechanical noises of the pedals and keys themselves. From perfect pianissimo to forceful fortissimo, this instrument delivers the same breadth and depth of tone as the originals.

Enchanting Ebony
Akoustik Piano has a first-class integrated convolution module, allowing highly authentic spatial characteristics to be added to the sound. Place the piano in a studio, jazz club, concert hall and a cathedral or use the dry signal as it is. The acoustic parameters of these spaces, such as the size, can also be manipulated. From the close mic setup of a jazz combo to the more ambient nature of classic solo performance, Akoustik Piano covers the whole spectrum.

Remember this is for Macs only

AKAI VST Collection (5 VSTs)

DC Vocoder

The DC Vocoder is a high quality 50-band vocoder that offers outstanding intelligibility. The top panel allows you to set the levels for the incoming signals and the overall output level. The Formant control allows you to 'gender-bend' the output - higher settings sound more feminine; lower settings sound more masculine.


The DecaBuddy is a multi-channel harmony generator capable of taking a monophonic audio signal and generating up to 4 harmony voices plus a unison voice that can track the audio input. Harmonies can be pre-programmed or, more conveniently, can be "played" via MIDI.


While it is possible to use an ordinary compressor for tightening up and adding punch to a stereo mix, it is very common that low frequencies can cause "pumping" effects on the overall signal. However, by splitting the signal into 4 different frequency bands, each frequency region can be separately processed. This is achieved on the QuadComp using a series of crossover filters. These filters are constructed as linear phase FIR filters in order to produce a signal path which is perfectly free of phase errors.


The Pitchright takes incoming audio and retunes it so that the output is perfectly in tune. It can be applied to vocals or just about any audio source that needs pitch correction. If the performance is generally satisfactory, you can select which notes will be processed and brought into tune using the keyboard graphic shown on the left of the panel - by clicking on notes on the keyboard, you can select which notes will and will not be processed. You can also use a series of preset scales to assist with this and given the real-time performance of the processor, you can switch between these "on-the-fly" using either the panel switches or "hotkeys" on your Mac/PC keyboard.


The Rotator is a VST plug-in that uses modeling technology to accurately reproduce the sound of a rotating speaker. Such speakers (also known as "Leslies" after the company who manufactured them) are widely used with organs to give a more animated sound and the "speaker" is commonly associated with the Hammond organ.
Basically, baffles in the cabinet are spun around on motors and this has the effect of (literally) throwing the sound around to create a rich stereo effect. As the baffles move, not only does the sound move but, due to the Doppler effect (the phenomena that causes ambulance sirens to change pitch as they drive past), a subtle pitch shift is also achieved.
