A Real-deal Emulation of Alicia Keys’s Piano

When Native Instruments devised Alicia’s Keys, they didn’t just slap a superstar’s name on a virtual instrument. This virtual piano is the real deal. First of all, it reproduces the sound of Alicia’s actual Yamaha C3 Neo acoustic piano. What’s more, its 3,000-plus individual samples were played by Alicia herself, were captured in her private Oven Studios, and were recorded by Alicia’s engineer, Ann Mincieli. Each sample contained in Alicia’s Keys boasts 12 discrete velocity layers for the utmost in realism, and includes sampled sustain and release phases, an ultra-realistic sympathetic resonance system, and optional finger noise. At Sweetwater, we’re blown away by the lifelike feel and sound of Alicia’s Keys. It even includes natural mechanical release noises for each of the 88 keys, plus pedal noises. Integrated convolution reverb adds the perfect final polish. Native Instruments Alicia’s Keys sounds so good, in fact, that Alicia used it on her 2009 album, The Element of Freedom. You won’t find a better endorsement than that!


  • The sound of Alicia Keys’ own personal Yamaha C3 Neo piano: Almost 3,000 individual samples on 12 discrete velocity layers with and without pedal — equivalent to 17GB of uncompressed WAV files!
  • Sampled from Alicia Keys’ own playing, recorded in her studio with her own engineer
  • Developed with the artist and tailor-made for her recording and performance needs
  • Meticulous sampling technique including the noise of the finger hitting the keys (optional)
  • Sampled sustain and release phases with authentic implementation of the sustain pedal
  • All-new sympathetic resonance system for harmonics in undampened strings
  • Exceptionally clean quality, yet featuring adjustable microphone noise for old-school sound
  • Natural mechanical release noises for each of the 88 keys and pedal noises
  • Integrated convolution reverb for tweaking the sound directly in the instrument
  • Easy user interface providing integrated documentation of all settings
