  • Velvet 2.0 delivers highly realistic emulations of your favorite electric pianos, from classic to modern. Velvet 2.0 accurately emulates the nuances of each original instrument—both in terms of sound quality and playing feel. Velvet 2.0 is versatile enough to reproduce virtually any electric piano sound, and is based on five legendary electric pianos: the Fender Rhodes Suitcase, Fender Rhodes MK I and MK II Stage Pianos, Wurlitzer 200A and Hohner Pianet-T. Updated to the 32-bit and 64-bit AAX formats, Hybrid 2.0 is fully compatible with Avid Pro Tools 10 & 11.

    Velvet 2.0 adds

    • New Hohner Pianet-T model
      Faithfully emulates this unique instrument from the ‘60s and ‘70s
    • New routing options for compressor (Pre- or Post-FX)
    • 70 new and many updated presets
    • New Vintage Mode switch (Timbre controls)
      Recreates the electric piano as heard on countless vintage recordings.
    • New Configuration Page
      Settings for pedal noise, effects routing, and the content file location

    Dynamic Modeling

    Most virtual instruments use either a sampling technique (every note is real) or a modeling technique (the behavior is more realistic) to emulate sounds and maintain performance efficiency. Velvet 2.0 employs proprietary dynamic modeling, a unique combination of optimized sampling and modeling techniques, allowing it to achieve incredibly accurate recreations of classic electric piano sounds with superior playing feel and dynamic response. You can even pull off sounds you’d normally only hear when playing the real instrument, from the faintness of the lightest pianissimo to the note splat of the strongest fortissimo.

    Realistic Electric Piano Experience

    Velvet 2.0 provides unprecedented control over the sound characteristics with such realism it’s as if you were playing a real electric piano. Turn up the tube drive controls in the preamp section to warm up your tone. Adjust the timbre, dynamic response, and velocity curve to customize the playing feel. Craft your ideal sound using the built-in multi-effects processing engine, and adjust the tuning. Even mix in the sound of pedal and other keyboard mechanical noises to recreate a truly realistic electric piano feel. The new Vintage Mode timbre setting recreates the sonic character of the current electric piano as heard on countless vintage recordings.

    As Easy to Use as the Originals

    Whether you want to use one of the 350 included professional-sounding electric piano presets, or to create something unique, dialing up the perfect electric piano sound is easy. Just select a preset and tweak away! The plug-in’s graphic user interface is reminiscent of classic electric pianos, making it familiar if you’ve ever played the real deal. And its controls work virtually almost like the originals, allowing you to easily modify sounds at the twist of a knob or notch of a slider.

    Total Sound Control

    Velvet 2.0 features a built-in preamp and effects to add a contemporary spin on a classic. Its powerful preamp section lets you shape your electric piano sound, and includes tube overdrive, compression, and a custom 3-band EQ with a parametric mid band. Process your sound further using a wide range of distortion, wah/filter, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tape delay effects — modeled after the classic originals — to emulate a vintage sound or forge something new. Give your e-piano tone some ambience with a choice of Ambience, Spring, and Room reverbs. You can even capture the perfect vibe by adding tremolo and autopan effects, which are modeled after those on the original electric pianos.

    Ready for Anything

    With its unique, dynamic modeling techniques and unrivaled sound control, Velvet 2.0 provides flexibility that enables keyboard players, arrangers, composers, and producers to achieve highly realistic electric piano sounds for any style of music with the convenience of a Pro Tools plug-in.
