MONSTER Piano, a Lightweight FREE Acoustic Piano VST with Multi Character

MONSTER Piano, a FREE VST Piano with many tone character!


#MonsterPianoVST is a Free Piano VST with various Preset, including Grand Piano, Baby Grand, and Upright Piano.

It covers multi-tone characters, suitable for Pop to Rock, Jazz, Classical, and everything in between.

The size of the sampling is small but still fun to play (I hope so).

The great thing about this VST is that this is never complete. This VST gets a new expansion (preset) sound continuously every now and then so stay tuned for more!

It covers multi-tone characters, suitable for Pop to Rock, Jazz, Classical, and everything in between.

Apple / Mac now have tightened their security on their OS. So my VST sometimes get a red flag or identified as a virus or malware or Mac marked my plugin as damaged.

If you need to believe me, please check my personal web here: and, I’m a music producer and Steinberg Certified Trainer and making FREE VSTs are my passion.


For a software or plugin to be notarized (=not flag as danger software or viruses or malware), I have to pay Apple some amount of money yearly. And right now, I’m not doing this (paying them).

So the solution is to use the terminal trick explained here:

Or watch this :

And my friend Agung Putranto has been kind enough to share what he did to make Monster Guitar shows up in his Logic Pro 10.7.1 on Monterey OS (This trick maybe work on earlier Logic Pro version and on BigSur OS too) :
