The concept is a little goofy, but, if it's an inspiring instrument, who cares?

That C-3 Neo is pretty rad:

Dropping a well know artist name on a product is just a sales gimmick albiet the samples probably sound close to the real thing.
@nuxnamon - The site says the model is discontinued. That's surprising now that Alicia is promoting it.

Personally, I think it is geat advertising. And thanks for sharing, She is worth looking at... Pretty sure she don't need the money from NI...But I guess she has a passion for music (like most of us here).
Successfull artists have always been used to advertise.


Edit, think I will have another look at her.



:D :D :roll:

Hey, after watching it again... I think I am going to buy it.

I guess she has that effect on me.

Pretty sure this is just another rebranded Scarbee product, one which was available from them for a little while before NI bought him out.

So, can't really call it "NI running out of ideas" if they're just starting to sell a 6 month old sampled piano (one that honestly sounds pretty good for the style from the samples on NI's site, and on gearslutz).

Well, at the very least we can say that they've run out of Scarbee products to rebrand!

I'd buy it if she came along with the software 8)

BTW, that's some sustain @ 2:11

The original email from NI says it's due for release on April 1st. Seems like NI are getting a jump on the competition for the early April vaporware. Then again maybe not. Remember the Moog guitar.
