The Apple EVP88 is an electric piano virtual instrument that comes as part of Apple's Logic Pro and Logic Studio. It's one of the main instruments included in the software and can only be used within Logic as far as I know. However, it is it's own instrument with it's own presets and controls and all. It will install when you install Logic altogether, although I don't remember if it's possible to pick and choose which instruments you want installed (I don't think it is). Either way, the EVP88 is definitely one that you're going to want in there and it's definitely the best stock electric piano virtual instrument I've used. It's also fully controllable as it's got a ton of parameters to work with that help you to achieve the sounds you're after. It also has built in effects for phaser, tremolo, and phaser. In addition it has EQ and drive controls as well. It's still a fairly simple interface to use while it also provides you with enough control to keep you busy for a bit. If this wasn't enough for you, the presets are quite useful as well. I would assume that there's something about the EVP88 in the Logic manual, but I haven't seen it for myself.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I'm running Apple's EVP88 within Logic Pro on my home system, which is a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I mostly use Pro Tools on this system but do use Logic Pro for writing purposes and for the great virtual instruments it has like the EVP88. If you can run Logic, you'll certainly be able to run the EVP88 within it...

OVERALL OPINION

One of the main reasons I like Logic so much is for the great virtual instruments that it comes with, and included in that is the EVP88. While not quite the best electric piano emulator that I've used in the digital world, it's quite good considering it comes stock with Logic. I've done some recording with it, but I definitely prefer using a real Wurlitzer or Rhodes when possible as this isn't going to be nearly as good as the real thing. However, for those looking to get in the ballpark it's definitely adequate. If you have Logic Pro or Studio, definitely check out the EVP88 electric piano and the other great instruments that come stock with it.
