Puremagnetik releases PM-70 Electric Piano Library for Kontakt, Live & Logic

Puremagnetik has released PM-70 Electric Piano Library, a new sound pack of 8 multi-sampled instruments emulating the Yamaha CP70 Electric Grand Piano.

At the core, the CP-70 is a piano with strings and hammers with a pickup system for electric amplification. Originally released in the 1970s as a "portable grand piano" for use on rock tours, the sound was made famous by Genesis, Kansas, U2 and more recently Keane. The CP-70 can be compared to that of a Rhodes or Wurlitzer electric piano, but due to the use of strings instead of tines, it sounds much more like a traditional piano. The metallic strings amplified by electric pickups further characterize the CP70 as its own class of piano, giving it a guitar-like sound at times.

Puremagnetik worked with The Distillery in New York City to capture the pickup details using a prototype germanium-based DI from Sage Electronics. The twangy saloon like piano tone was recorded with a stereo pair of matched 414's through a Focusrite ISA 828. Additionally, Puremagnetik has programmed some patches to emulate the CP-70 tremolo circuit and tube amplifier. As evidenced in some of the more exploratory patches, PM-70 also explores the piano as a spectral source to create new fictional synthesizer tones.

PM-70 Features:

  • High Quality 24 bit MultiChannel recordings.
  • Multiple Velocity Layers for Realistic Playability.
  • Emulation of the Original Tremolo Circuit.
  • Integrated Ableton Live Effects Racks with Advanced Macro Mapping.
  • Custom Kontakt KSP GUI for Easy Editing.


  • Ableton Live 8.2.1, Kontakt 3.5 or Logic 8.
  • 250 MB of physical RAM.
  • 600 Megabytes (MB) of free hard disk space.

Puremagnetik is a sound content subscription service. Subscriptions start at $5.75 per month.
