Gospel Musicians has released FM TiNES, a dedicated electric piano library that focuses on the 80's sound, for UVI Workstation and MachFive.

FM TiNES is a sample and synth library containing over 20GB of electric pianos. The goal was to cover the complete genre of electric piano patches, not just FM.

From D50 type bells, beautiful pads, lush strings, and multi-layered FM EPs taken directly from the SY99 hardware, FM TiNES aims to be the number one electric piano library to go to for that 80s/90s sound. And because they are vintage synth addicts, Gospel Musicians included sound emulations of the classic o1W Dyno, the JD Crystal EP, a Dyno-My-Piano, and the EP sounds of the MKS-20 piano module.

Gospel Musicians say "Imagine having a room with an o1W, a JD-800, a DX7, a DX7IID, an SY99, an MKS-20, and a Roland Dimension D chorus effects module all crammed into one sound library. Then you add the new industry standard, buttery sounding SparkVerb, and you now have an inspirational electrical piano that will take you back to the days where you had your first dance. Think of this library as your complete vintage tour guide of the classic 80s FM electric piano library. From the sounds of Babyface, Whitney Houston, Robbie Buchanan, and Disney, you will be inspired by the quality and depth of sounds you can achieve with this library."

FM TiNES is designed to create the ultimate FM TiNES sample library and synth. Notice they say synth and not just a sample library. This is because Gospel Musicians have set their library in the similar fashion as Yamaha synths, where you have up to 4-elements. You then can control each element with a sundry of different controls, LFOs, Panning, Vibrato, Filtering, individual insert effects and even a Master section with a compressor and SparkVerb. This is not just a static sample player where you just choose a patch and play a sound. Rather, this library is a full blown synth with a plethora of control. A great thing about the UVI Workstation is that if you are not satisfied with 4-stacked layers, then you have the ability to stack even more through the built in Multi function.

Initially when Gospel Musicians were seeking those coveted electric pianos, they tried using various FM VST emulators and found out that the sound was very clean - too clean.

They say: "Anyone who is a sound fanatic knows that the most important aspect of the sound lies in its filters. When you run a sound through a D/A converter, then the sound immediately takes on the personality of the filters. So what we are saying is that a real FM tine has a gritty and dirty sound. In fact, if you listen to the output of a DX7 or an SY99, you will hear this dirty hiss and a darker tone--full of richness and dirtiness at the same time. To our ears, this is what really makes an FM tine sound the way it sounds; as a result, we chose to use an FM hardware synth instead of software in order to emulate it better. Trust us, we've spent months online looking for patches to import into the FM emulators and were very disappointed when the sound lacked richness, phatness, texture, and more importantly, it lacked expressiveness."

"Our choice to use the SY99 came from the fact that the SY99 can read all of the DX7 models and FM synths as well as having the ability to load in custom FM operators. In addition the SY99 contains samples and the ability to load in samples as well. This is why the SY99 was Yamaha's flagship keyboards and one of the greatest FM synths ever made. I think of the SY99 like a DX7 on steroids. It could read all of the DX SYX patches and load in new samples and new FM operators. So we went for the "big dog" 'when we set out to sample our EPs. This way we could load patches from a slew of different FM synths and capture all of the character, grit, and expressiveness of all of the DX synths together."

Library Specs:

  • 148 Patches, and 75 Distinct EP sounds (Not including the strings, bells, and pads).
  • Size: 20GB (Detailed and exhaustive library).
  • Recorded at 44kHz/24-bit directly from the Yamaha SY99 analog outputs.
  • Converted to 16-bits using iZotope's MBit+ for maximum quality (converted to 16-bit to save on hard drive space and RAM).

Price: $99.99 until February 1, 2014.
