FAVORITE PIANO AU/VST PLUGIN?
Whats up guys? I produce on Logic Pro X, and I'm looking for a piano AU plugin. Hoping to find some more real timbres. LPX has some pianos, but even though I alter their velocity, it still sounds very midi-ish, especially when compared to a real piano. Any suggestions ?

I did some research recently. At the end of the day it's down to personal taste.
If you want a piano to sound as authentic as possible and sits nice in the mix 'true pianos' vst is great value for money. I also like pianoteq, but it does sound a little flat, although it's nice warm sounding. I also like alicias keys, big sound, sits well in the mix too.
Go on YouTube, where you will find some people have done a comparison on many.
Demo the ones you like.
Nothing sounds like the real thing, but there are some nice sounding piano vst's out there.

VST's work on macs, I recently got a used MacBook Pro and loaded loads of VST's on it - very stable platform and does not need cleaning up like on windows, but with me now being over 55years of age my eyes are not so good for a 15" monitor, but I can hook it up to a bigger monitor when doing photo editing and such like - When I upgrade my windows Desktop PC, I'm going to build a Hackintosh (A mac you build yourself), which is legal - Basically all you need is someone who owns a mac and with various recommended computer components, you can build a high performance mac for a lot less money than buying an Apple Mac - You can also have it booting windows too if you want, so you get to use one or the other.
