Rhodes Revisited

Sonokinetic release EMP MkII for Kontakt 4.1 and EXS24mkII      22/02/11
Here's what Sonokinetic has to say about their EMP MkII...
The electro mechanical piano has been sampled over and over, so why do it again? One reason is because each one has its own specific sound, and this one, the Mark 2, has been overlooked by many other companies, while it has a distinctive sound that especially comes to life in soulful ballads, but also holds its own in more upbeat music styles. Another reason is that, for all the work that's has been put into recreating this kind of instrument, playing the real thing always tickles us in a way that the sampled counterpart just doesn't. So what is the big differentiator? We think much lies in the imperfection of a real instrument...and that's what we tried to capture in this sampled EMP.
Our mission statement on this one was to recreate the playing experience of a real, vintage instrument in a way that hasn't been done before, and we think we succeeded!

"I Wish" line does not groove at all (rushing a bit). Damn, can't get over it...
