In-depth

These classic electric piano models have their origins in the 1970s, and their characteristic sounds – from soft and chiming to raspy and biting – feature prominently in the jazz, fusion and rock music of that era. The sampling experts at Soniccouture bring these instruments up to date with their perfect integration into Ableton Live while retaining the full spectrum of sound that made the originals so beloved.

Keys For Real

In order to ensure an ultra-realistic dynamic response, every single note of these electric pianos has been sampled at many velocity levels with even the release sound of each key sampled separately. In total, Electric Pianos contains over 3 GB of samples. To get the proper old-school tones, a selection of vintage outboard equipment was used during the recording process. The result is an eminently playable collection of instruments bursting with character - just drop one into a MIDI track and get grooving.

Electric Pianos comes with 70 Instrument Racks. These presets recreate many classic keyboard sounds and feature tweakable settings for effects such as vibrato, auto-wah and auto-panning, delay and reverb. Many of the presets include EQ controls to dial in the exact warmth or bite that is typical of the Rhodes and Wurlitzer pianos. For the discerning keyboard player, velocity curves and note release controls may be adjusted to your taste. 

The Instrument Racks are divided into 'Full' versions which are closer to the natural un-effected sound of the instrument and 'Lite' versions that load quicker and tend toward the funky and experimental side. Along with the Instrument Racks, Electric Pianos includes a selection of raw Simpler presets for building your own Racks.
