e-instruments Session Keys Electric R v1.1 KONTAKT
From Lounge to Fusion, from Jazz to Electro – the Mark I is omnipresent. Its unique sound fits in a variety of genres but remains unmistakably recognizable. SESSION KEYS Electric R is based on a vintage 1976 Mark I Stage Piano, specially modified with eight individual outputs to capture every nuance of its classic sound.
Electric R offers great customization options. Details such as sustain resonance, key noises, release, and reverse samples are quickly and easily manipulated. Electric R even allows for virtual adjusting of the distance between tines and pick-ups, and control of the quantity of “unplugged” miked sound.
In addition to recording electrical output signals, an extensive microphone set-up was used to capture the pure, unaltered acoustic sound of the instrument.
The FX section of Electric R features classic electric piano effects such as Tremolo, Chorus, Amp Simulation, Delay and Reverb.
Studio and Live
The tonal landscape of the Electric R offers everything from mellow soundscapes to barking riffs, and you even can switch instantly between two different sample sets: Studio and Live.
Studio was recorded directly through high-end pre-amps and A/D converters, reproducing the piano’s clear, bell-like character.
Live uses classic vintage outboard equipment and pre-amps for an edgier, rougher version of the instrument.
The stylish Pentamorph can give the classic stage piano a new, complex voice in a matter of seconds using a single control: select one of the five main characteristics or any position between. Morph from pure acoustic sound via electric to reverse in realtime.
Instant flexible control in a single knob.
Animator boasts more than 400 ready-to-play licks and phrases in different genres and styles. Find new ideas to start or finish your tracks in no time, following keys and harmonies with complete control over dynamics and complexity.
Stuck in a black hole of inspiration and need some suitable chord changes? This clever feature is a huge help in the song-writing process. Full chords or Animator riffs can be played either via a pad controller or single keys. Just set the key of your song and let Smart Chord create the harmonies.
