I've been looking for a good piano VST and I'm intrigued by XLN's Addictive Keys. Their Studio Grand samples are significantly better than anything I have in my library and it is selling for only $50 right now. Seems like a bargain based on the cost of other plug-ins like Ivory and EZ keys, looks to have more malleability as well.
The question is whether I should splurge and get their Studio Collection for $150. It comes iwth the Grand, a Modern Upright and a Rhodes. I'd probably pick it up, except that I read a review that said the Rhodes sounds are dated and spongey, the former being a big problem of mine. My ear for keys is hardly refined for and Bee has called me on it several times Frankly, the Modern Upright is largely redundant for the same reason, I can barely discern the difference between that and the Grand!
Anyway, would anyone mind listening to the samples on XLN's website and in the attached vid and let me know if the Rhodes is worth picking up?
