Not so impressed with the Addictive demo on the website. It reminds me of the piano sound we were all hoping we could evolve from a decade or two ago. I have been a fan of an eq'd Alicia's, not perfect, yet it has a delightful mojo.
But I haven't touched it since I bought NI's "The Giant". It was on sale and I thought what the heck. At first I thought it sounded like a giant toy, impossibly huge. Then I realized it played like the 12 foot Steinway I played some years back. The notes will really deliver an amazing fortissimo more than any sample I'd heard, yet, the pianissimo is so delicate and musical. I thought I would just play it as a guilty pleasure until I put it in a mix. Amazing. What pokes through are exactly the elements and nuances from a piano I'm looking for in the mix (after rolling off some bottom). It comes through strong, clear and musical, but not overbearing. I am so surprised. The Giant is my go to piano. I have no idea why it's still under the radar
except that some may be initially put off by how huge it sounds. It reminds me of a Bugatti Veyron, you want to know what you're doing before you get in it. Likewise, this piano will give you everything you want and more, just make sure you know how to drive it.
