Following the steps of their B-5 Organ, Acousticsamples has released VTines, an Electric Piano instrument using modeling techniques and samples as the sound source. The result allows for natural playability and sounds like a real Electric Piano with all its imperfections.
They used a 1978 Fender Rhodes Mark I as the sound source, fully restored, for the recording.
- Modeled Vibrato: The unique vibrato stereo panning was carefully measured on a suitcase amp and replicated. They added the possibility to sync it to the tempo of a sequencer and also to use it as mono as it was the case in pre-69 models.
- Suitcase AMP: The stereo amps of Suitcase Electric Pianos have a very recognizable sound. They captured different microphone positions and distances to cover most of the real life recording placements.
- FX Pedalboard: Electric pianos are often used with FX, so they created an FX panel with the most common ones, each of them is one of the very efficient and high quality FX made by UVI.
- Precise adjustments: Modeling also means customization. That is why you can alter the sound of the VTines like you would on a real electric piano and in a very easy way.
You can adjust many different parameters for each note, for all notes or using a mapper for each parameter.
VTines is available at an introductory price of 79€ / $95 until after the Black Friday weekend, on November 25th.
