Comments about XLN Audio Addictive Keys Software Download:
The upside is this thing sounds beautiful. I have a few other piano VSTs and this is easily the pick of the litter. The three included pianos are all articulate and expressive with lots of life and a joy to play. The onboard editing capacities are huge, and you can easily get the exact sound you are looking for. If you want a reasonably priced piano VST I'd strongly encourage you to take a close look.
The downside is this thing is a massive CPU HOG!!! I have an i7 with a ton of RAM, and running just one instance of this, and nothing else, with my buffer set at 128 I get lots of dropouts as well as clicks and pops. Bummer. Also, installation was bear. I used XLN's online installer and it took the better part of a day to get it to work. I think others have had this problem as well, so take that as a caveat.
