Cineplus has released The Duet EP, a sample based electric piano reminiscent of the 80s.
The Duet EP is based on 2 classic patches. One is a DX7 Patch, the other is an RD-1000 Patch (without chorus), which have been edited, sampled and combined up to 16 times, to create a totally new, but classic and original electric piano instrument.
Both instruments have been carefully sampled:
- 88 individual keys.
- 17 layers per key.
- Full sustain (no loop).
The Logic Pro X version patches are Logic Stacks, which include up to 16 EXS instances, with individual pan, tuning and delay, plus aux reverbs. Those Stacks are fully editable and customizable.
The Generic version is a set of EXS instruments and the relative samples, and can be imported into almost any sampler. To replicate the Stack, the generic version has one more patch which is a "baked" Stack of 16 EXS instances.
To sample the essence of the sonic qualities of both instruments, the Cineplus team recorded them through a Custom DI, a Studer Console, and Apogee converters.
The Duet EP is priced at $29.99. More info at: www.cineplus.ch/theduet
- To take full advantage of the live editable Stacks The Duet EP needs Logic Pro X.
- To be used on other DAWs, The Duet EP comes with a generic, EXS format, with a "baked" 16x bonus stack.
