As usual, it's on sale to start. ($29 vs $49)
https://sampleson.com/reed106.html

This one looks to be a recreation of the Wurlitzer 106, a smaller model than the more commonly-heard 200A. (Sampleson also has a Reed200 model.) It has a smaller (more trebly) sound to it and fewer keys. Reed106 is expanded to 64 keys.

They're focusing on new "infinite natural variations" tech in this instrument. I usually avoid repetitive notes by playing badly, but I'll take all the help I can get.

The interface also changes based on the time of day, which is... uh, kinda neat I guess?

Anyways, for those of you who like electric pianos and (like me) don't like big sample libraries, Sampleson makes nice instruments. Thought I'd share.
the old free version may not work boots successfully on new generations of computers, instruments, and hardware

It has new preset browser - now You can listen to preset without closing browser; but I can't make presets folder((
Another thing is sad for me in Sampleson plugins - You can't assigin MIDI controllers - for example tremolo to modwheel etc.
Reed106 sounds very good - more complex than Scarbee Kontakt libraries for example
