Native Instruments releases Elektrik Piano v1.5 (incl. Universal Binary)

Native Instruments has released Elektrik Piano v1.5, which includes Universal Binary support on Mac OS X.

Now based on the Kontakt 2 engine, Elektrik Piano v1.5 features greater stability, much faster loading times, host automation capacity, an improved voice allocation algorithm, thoroughly reworked 'authentic' patches, and numerous other small improvements from version 1.

  • New Instruments: Elektrik Piano 1.5 comes with 16 new "Authentic Instruments" presets (four for each piano). All instruments have been carefully redesigned, reproducing the dynamic feel of the original keyboards to the fullest extent. "Authentic Instruments" presets can also be imparted with even greater level of depth and warmth, thanks to the brand new impulse-response room and cabinet simulations.
  • New Effects: The A200, MK1 and MK2 instruments now include a tremolo effect which can be controlled via MIDI and mod-wheel as well as allowing for automation in your host sequencer. Additionally, instrument presets with different tremolo amount settings can be combined in a single performance. The E7 instruments now include a mod-wheel controllable Wah-Wah effect, a "Sound" knob which will switch through 10 different sound settings and a sustain pedal emulating the E7's characteristic damper mechanism.
  • More Choice: New options for setting the dynamic range and random values for velocity, volume, and pitch have been added, giving Elektrik Piano 1.5 an exquisitely 'organic' feel.
  • More Realism: Also new in version 1.5 is the redesigned voice allocation algorithm which not only reduces CPU usage but also authentically replicates the mechanical workings of a real electric piano.
  • Intel-Mac ready: Elektrik Piano is now Intel Mac compatible - the Universal Binary update is included in version 1.5.

The version 1.5 update is free is you registered Elektrik Piano after September 12, 2006. If you registered Elektrik Piano single version (or Komplete 3) before September 12, 2006 the 1.5 update costs €25 / $29 as a download in the NI Online Shop. Komplete 4 users will receive the update for free.
