e-instruments has announced Session Keys Electric W for Kontakt And Kontakt Player.
Session Keys Electric W is designed to combine authentic sound, flexible operation, and unique controls to make it feel like you're playing the real thing, producing sounds you wouldn't imagine were created electronically.
To replicate this hit-making electric piano, e-instruments turned every stone for a suitable original, which underwent further specialist restoration to bring it painstakingly back to peak condition.
It was recorded in two different ways, to create two separate sound sets:
- Studio represents the direct unaltered line-out sound.
- Live, which reproduces the sound of the speakers through an expertly positioned microphone setup.
The faithful recording creates all acoustic noises and resonances together with the pure acoustic sound, giving the user the option to blend acoustic and electric sound. Besides 35 inspiring sound presets, tuning options and powerful effects its play assistance and production tools include:
- The Pentamorph giving the classic instrument complex new sound options. Blend from the pure electric piano to reversed sounds via other complex tones, all with one control.
- The Animator commands more than 440 ready-to-play professional licks and phrases in different genres and styles. Phrases follow keys and harmonies while providing complete control over dynamics and complexity using the pitch bend and modulation wheels.
- The Smart Chord function to create instant piano chords from single keys or pads.
Session Keys Electric W is fully Native Instruments NKS compatible. NKS provides seamless integration with NI's Komplete Kontrol keyboards and offers visual feedback of parameters, key switches and even notes the Animator is playing.
Price: 79 € / $79 from the e-instruments online store. There is a special upgrade offer for Session Keys owners of 49 € / $49.
