Session Electric Bundle - Electric Piano Instruments For Kontakt
Soul to the power of three
From the creators of StringWERK, three iconic vintage electric pianos with powerful sound design tools. Play an original or create unique textures.
Session Keys Electric W is the sound of some of the most iconic hits over the last few decades. With attention to every detail, the recreation of this classic electric piano offers you all the warmth and dynamic range of the original. The Wurli helped to define the sound characteristics of Fusion, Disco, Funk, and Pop. You'll get tons of inspiration from the various sounds the electric piano produces at different velocity layers – from Vibraphone-like smoothness to ultra-aggressive, distorted sounds.
Studio & Live
"Studio" delivers the direct unaltered line-out sound, while "Live" captures the sound of the speakers through a comprehensive microphone set-up covering the original speakers including cone-cry and break-up.
From Lounge to Fusion, from Jazz to Electro - the Mark I electric piano 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.
Studio & Live
The Studio mode was recorded directly through high-end pre-amps and A/D converters, reproducing the piano’s clear, bell-like character. Whereas the Live mode uses classic vintage outboard equipment and pre-amps for an edgier, rougher version of the instrument.
Nothing embodies the evolution of the electric piano better than the 1973 Suitcase: a killer package of keyboard, amp and speakers.
To recreate this much-loved electric piano classic we hunted high and low for a top-quality original. We unearthed a magnificent 1973 suitcase which spent weeks undergoing painstaking specialist restoration. Once back to peak condition we began detailed recording to capture every nuance of its original sound.
Studio & Live
With the Electric S we wanted you to experience not only a clean, flexible and expressive sound but also the best possible feel. The Suitcase was recorded with and without the original speaker to create two separate sound sets: Studio and Live. Studio gives direct unaltered line-out sound, while Live captures the sound of cabinet and speakers through a comprehensive microphone set-up covering all four speakers for an incredibly realistic feel.
