Native Instruments has announced Alicia's Keys - a new software grand piano based on the signature tone of the all-conquering R&B diva's Yamaha C3 Neo instrument.

The samples for this 17GB Kontakt Player instrument (it can also be loaded into Kontakt 4) were recorded at Keys' Oven Studios over a period of two years, resulting in a piano that offers 12 discrete velocity layers per note and emulates key release, sustain pedal functionality and sympathetic resonance. A convolution reverb is also included.

"I love this software so much that I used it on my entire new album,"
says Alicia,
"Not once did I record a live piano because there was just no need. I plan to tour with this sound and use it all around the world. I love how it gives those who may not be able to buy an acoustic piano a true piano experience."

Alicia's Keys will be released on April 1, 2010 for Mac and PC priced at $119/€99.
