Propellerhead releases "Radical Keys" Rack Extension

Propellerhead has released Radical Keys, a new Rack Extension instrument for Reason that faithfully recreates three classic electromechanical keyboards—Rhodes, Pianet and Wurlitzer. Based on the same 'Radical' technology as Propellerhead's Radical Piano, Radical Keys goes beyond emulation, by enabling users to sculpt their own instruments from the originals.

Using Grammy-award winning audio engineer Niklas Flyckt, Propellerhead captured the original instruments in full detail at Sveriges Radio (SR) in Stockholm. Nothing was left to chance, from the careful selection of the amplifier to the separate recording of key and pedal noises. Radical Keys even replicates the instruments' sympathetic resonance. The result is "an incredibly playable virtual instrument, delivering all the nuances of the originals, and then some".

Radical Keys goes beyond traditional sampling, thanks to Propellerhead's Radical Engine, which combines sampling with advanced synthesis. The Radical Engine enables an exaggerated dynamic range and creates controls for timbre manipulation and sympathetic resonance. Keyboard players are invited to blend between three signal paths for each keyboard, amplifier close and room mics and the direct input, or even create a unique blend of two of the instruments. The built-in effects—tremolo, overdrive, phaser, chorus, EQ and spring reverb—are unique to this instrument and designed specifically for electric pianos. They deliver extra sound sculpting possibilities, perfect for any song or performance, from intimate solo parts to crunchy rock comping.
