The Waldorf Zarenbourg - It's a Rhodes, Grande, CP80 and Fender Piano and features sampling, true FM and physical modelling.

A far lighter product than the early mark series Rhodes, weight has been saved in replacing metal parts from the keyboard with plastic, which we have been reassured is very durable!

The perfect Rhodes? It just may well be.

No Wurli??? Not that difficult to produce with the same kind of physical modeling methinks. It also looks a lot like a Wurlitzer.

Other than that, interesting instrument!

It does contain a Wurlitzer. Person demonstrating didn't seem to know what he was doing.

3,000 Euros and and no mod wheel. I wonder if it's pressure-sensitive. There's a lot of competetion out there--I wish they'd put more effort into their synths instead.

60 or 16kg?

Pair this up with the Korg Micropiano and you'd have a whole expensive, ridiculous novelty rig.

Raphus, expensive yes, but a mod wheel and pressure sensing on an electro-mechanical emulation?

This ones target audience is people who want a Rhodes, Wurlitzer, CP80, etc. but don't have the room for them or any desire to deal with their upkeep. The acoustic piano and FM synth are included because they are competing with Yamaha's CP1 (which is also very expensive).
