If your stage or studio situation doesn’t allow for an acoustic piano or acoustic microphone recording, the Ravenworks Digital with the Ravenscroft Virtual Instrument plugin sets the standard for the most realistic touch and tone possible in the digital realm (in my opinion). The Ravenscroft VI is installed on my Mac and it’s the only virtual piano I’ll ever want or need for my recording studio.
