The MOTU Electric Keys is a virtual instrument designed for use within MOTU Digital Performer, but can be used in other sequencers as well.  This piece of software has always run smoothly for me and I haven't ever had any compatibility issues as I run it with Digital Performer which is made by the same company. 


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

The interface of the software is pretty easy to follow as it has all of the effects and features you would expect from a good electric piano.  In addition to having a ton of different presets, it has parameters for volume, tune, bass, middle, treble, and drive and then has a section for the tremolo effect which has parameters for depth and speed.  The manual for the MOTU Electric Keys software is put together well and is a good thing to have if you are new to virtual instruments.

OVERALL OPINION

Overall, the MOTU Electric Keys virtual instrument is a great sounding piece of gear.  It does an awesome emulation of the electric piano and can get sounds similar to a Fender Rhodes or a Wurlizter Electric Piano, all in the convienience of a virtual instrument.  Since I use this in Digital Performer, I find that it always runs very well without any issues, which adds to the overall ease of use of the software.  The amount of different sounds possible with this software is pretty endless as there are not only a ton of great presets, but also a wide array of parameters to control your tone.  The price of this software is about average and while it isn't a steal by any means, I do believe you are getting your moneys worth.  If you are looking for a great emulator of an electric piano, MOTU Electric Keys is the way to go, especially if you are running MOTU Digital Performer.
