There's something about the sound of the classic keyboard instruments that makes them endure over the years. The Rhodes MkI and MkII, the Wurlitzer and the Clavinet all still end up on recordings. Native Instruments have obviously recognised this and brought them all together in one plug-in. The Elektrik Piano fuses these four legendary electric pianos (note the correkt spelling!) of the last century into one charismatic software instrument for studio and stage.
ELEKTRIK PIANO is based on KONTAKTs sampling technology, which allows for highly realistic and dynamic reproduction of the original instruments. Sophisticated multisampling delivers outstanding
sound quality - each key of the original instruments was sampled with the full release phase and in various velocities. Special release samples also add to that authentic vintage piano feeling. To secure pristine audio quality, carefully selected high-quality tube preamps and world-class A/D converters were used in the sampling process.
Each of the four e-pianos in ELEKTRIK PIANO is represented with a broad range of presets, which can be combined to form individual performance sets. These can be recalled quickly by MIDI controllers or function keys, which is especially suitable for live usage.
For each instrument, ELEKTRIK PIANO also offers different effect modules for maximum flexibility and authenticity -
including chorus, phaser, reverb and tremolo.
ELEKTRIK PIANO will be available in May 2004 for a suggested retail
price of $ 229 / 199 Euros.
