We are happy to announce a new member of the Session Keys family.

Session Keys Electric R is based on a vintage 1976 Rhodes Mark I Stage Piano, specially modified with eight individual outputs to capture every nuance of its classic sound.
In addition to recording line out signals, an extensive microphone setup was used to capture the pure, unaltered acoustic sound of the instrument. The result brings the true Stage Piano feel to life and delivers an exquisitely detailed tone with supreme depth and flexibility.

Session Keys Electric R features two different electric piano characters: Studio and Live. Studio was recorded directly through high-end pre-amps and A/D converters, reproducing the piano's clear, bell-like character popular amongst some of the best jazz and pop artists in the world. Live uses classic vintage outboard equipment and pre-amps for an edgier, rougher version of the instrument. The Rhodes' distinct mid range is designed to sit well even in very dense arrangements.

Session Keys Electric R also delivers creative sound design possibilities that go far beyond the instrument's original capabilities. The Pentamorph controller can give the classic Rhodes piano a new complex sound in a matter of seconds.
The powerful effect and scripting engine allows users to tweak virtually every element of the Rhodes sound, even down to the distance between tines and pick-ups. On the real Instrument this is done with the laborious adjustment of a large number of individual screws – on Session Keys Electric R it's just a single control.
The Animator boasts over 200 ready to play licks and phrases in different genres and styles. Animator is much more than a simple phrase player, it follows keys and harmonies while providing complete control over a phrase's dynamics and complexity using the pitch bend and mod wheels.
The Smart Chord function creates instant piano chords from a single note and also allows Electric R to be played using pad controllers.

Session Keys Electric R includes a large number of effect presets, from standards such as Auto Pan or Phaser to inspired atmospheric pads or punchy short hits.
The effect chain features classic electric piano effects such as Tremolo, Chorus, Amp Simulation, Delay, and Reverb. Additional parameters for more creative sound design can be used to turn a Tremolo into a stutter-like modulation effect or to sync Auto Pan and Delay to musical tempo.

Designed for creative workflow, Session Keys Electric R the perfect choice for any production from jazz to funk, soul to pop...and beyond.

Session Keys Electric R is available immediately from the e-instuments online store for Euro €79 USD $79 http://www.e-instruments.com

Did you download archives (ZIP or RAR)? If so, that first needs to be unpacked to your sample libraries folder (wherever you have it). From there on, install instructions will definitely work.

Alright, can you post a screenshot of the contents of that folder? If it has a .nicnt file inside, all you need to do is point Kontakt's Add Library function to exactly that folder (not any folder within it), and when it finds the .nicnt file, you can proceed with the in-app authorization by entering the serial number. Should be good to go.

Hello Guitardoc,

We did receive your email at 18:30 CET and sent the answer below at 20:00 CET on the same day:

"Thank you for contacting e-instruments.

Session Keys Electric R does not require an installer; it is activated via the Kontakt "Add library" function.
Information on how to install the library can be found on page two of the Session Keys Electric R user manual or at the start of the Quick Guide.

Additionally you can find information here:

How to add and activate a library in Kontakt
http://www.native-instruments.com/en/su ... o-kontakt/
http://www.native-instruments.com/en/su ... e-library/

All the best,
Thomas"


You did receive a zip file, but your mac decompressed it immediately, so you found the "Session Keys Electric R" library folder, which is fine

For activation you need to select the "Session Keys Electric R" FOLDER, NOT a FILE within that folder - which is what you are trying to do. This is very clearly stated in the manual as well as in the videos.

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any further questions.
