Acousticsamples has released Wurlie, a 64-key Wurlitzer 206A piano, and, as the Wurlitzer company named it, a "Student Electronic Piano".
The 206A is a student model, and is very similar to a 200A except for its beige color and built-in amp/speaker (it also did not come with a tremolo).
Acousticsamples recorded it both from the direct output using a state of the art DI (Universal Audio Solo 610) and also using a pair of microphones right above the keys next to where the head of a player would be. They also included their common features, like multiple releases, and also included a sympathetic resonance system (both pedal up and down). You also have access to various commonly used effects and full control over the MIDI parameters to make it fit to your keyboards response.
