Waves is now shipping the Waves Electric 200 piano, an addition to its expanding line of virtual instruments. They tell us that Electric 200 is a precise sampling of two classic 200-model electric pianos, as featured on legendary songs by Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Queen. Here's the details in their own words...
Waves Electric 200 captures the bite, bark and punchy reed tone of the electric piano model used on classic recordings by music giants from Ray Charles, Pink Floyd, Steely Dan and many more. Sampled from two individual instruments, each with its own distinct tone, Electric 200 gives users the flexibility to create classic and adventurous sounds in rock, jazz, R&B and electronic music – "a quantum leap forward in feature, tone, responsiveness, realism and grit from the other sampled Wurlitzer pianos out there," according to top studio musician Charlie Judge (Carrie Underwood, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban). It is designed to deliver the human touch that is so essential when sampling tonally complex analog instruments. For an authentic feel with true physical presence, users can mix in the sound of the internal piano mechanisms, as if the original instruments were sitting right in front of them.
The included high-quality effects offer an impressive array of versatility in just a few knobs. You can use the phaser for a classic '70s stomp pedal sound, add the reverb for natural spatial placement within the mix, or jam live with the intuitive controls for smooth modulation effects. Combined with musical tone controls, the Waves Electric 200 provides endless possibilities for adding this sought-after electric piano sound to your music.
