Waves Audio is now shipping the Waves Pianos & Keys Bundle,which they describe as a hand-picked suite of the electric and acoustic keys that have defined pop, rock, funk, soul and R&B, faithfully sampled and revived. Here's the story in Waves' own words...
The pianos and keys in this collection capture every articulation, hammer-hitting tone and string-striking mechanic of the highly-coveted originals. Whether you're a professional keyboard player, a songwriter or a producer playing in the studio or live on stage, you will enjoy the true feel, expression and rich dynamic response of these authentic instruments.
Waves Pianos & Keys Bundle includes five VST instruments:
- Waves Grand Rhapsody Piano: Faithfully sampled from the Fazioli F228 grand piano at London's Metropolis Studios, using eight pairs of first-class condenser, dynamic & ribbon microphones.
- Waves Electric 88 Piano: Captures all the soul and sweetness of two authentic, road-worn 88-key suitcase pianos; "Top of the class for Fender Rhodes VIs," remarks master keyboardist Jason Miles.
- Waves Electric 200 Piano: Sampled from an original 200A-model electric piano to revive that classic, gritty, fat and majestic Wurly sound.
