Velvet delivers emulations of electric pianos. From the faintness of the lightest pianissimo to the note splat of the strongest fortissimo, Velvet comes with 4 GB of sounds, features a reverb effects module with three reverb types (Ambience, Spring, and Room), and nine FM tines that deliver unique sonic characteristics, including classic '80s-inspired "glassy" digital piano sounds.


  • Realistic emulations of four legendary electric pianos: The Fender Rhodes Suitcase, Fender Rhodes MK I and MK II Stage Pianos, and the Wurlitzer A200.
  • Unique combination of high-definition sampling and a proprietary dynamic modeling technique delivers the ultimate electric piano experience.
  • Proprietary engine allows for dynamic resolution and response.
  • Detailed reproductions of electric pianos, including signature sounds when keys are hit forcefully.
  • Maximum control over the sound characteristics, including the unique ability to add the sound of the keyboard mechanics to the output signal.
  • Easily adjust the overall timbre, dynamic response, and velocity curve of each model for a range of classic and contemporary electric piano sounds.
  • Powerful preamp section with tube overdrive, compression, and custom 3-band EQ with a parametric mid band.
  • High-quality reverb effects module provides Ambience, Spring, and Room reverb types.
  • Flexible, dedicated tremolo and autopan effects modeled after those on vintage electric pianos.
  • Built-in professional multi-effects processing engine features stunningly realistic reproductions of vintage distortion, wah/filter, modulation, amplifier, and delay effects - including an emulation of classic tape delay.
  • Over 100 electric piano presets build a basis for faithful reproductions of legendary classic - as well as modern - electric piano sounds.
  • MIDI Learn functionality allows for easily mapping plug-in parameters to MIDI instruments and controllers.
  • Familiar, easy-to-use graphic user interface reminiscent of the classic electric pianos.

I was hesitant at first. It does not look fascinating like Hybrid 3 or Vital. I am so glad that I went for it. The sound is rich and mesmerizing. I have an actual vintage melo tone 300 that i hook up the wah wah, delay pedal etc. to. I can get the same sort of sounds and conveniently play through my DAW on my MPK25. I am in love. AIR music technology VST plug ins are wonderful and so is their customer service. Go for it. It is worth every penny and you will not regret it. Thank you SO much.

This "2020" version is the same as before "v2.0.7" !?

All 3 "2020" updates from AIR do not work... :-(.
