Soniccouture has announced their latest product, Clav, which they describe as a state-of-the-art reproduction of a Hohner D6 clavinet.
A spokesperson told us, "A surgical approach to sampling the instrument involved specially modifying the instrument to provide separate outputs for each pickup, and add an input to the switchable D6 preamp EQ. This allowed Soniccouture to sample each pickup separately, which is how they are presented in the final virtual instrument. This makes it possible to precisely emulate the
phase switching of the original instrument, as well as adding the unique ability to pan pickups in stereo, and to bypass the preamp for a clean 'direct output'."
