Sampleson has released Klavee, a virtual restoration of the Czech Klaviphon, a plucked electric piano manufactured in the 60s in the Czech Republic.
This is what they say about it:
There's no other Electric Piano like this one and it's never been recreated into a virtual instrument, until now. A rare-piece specially made for electric piano collectors.
The Czech Klaviphon is almost extinct. No parts can be found online and just a few of them still alive. This is why we wanted to make a virtual version of it. To keep its unique sound for further generation of musicians.
Klavee was built upon spectral modelling, a technique that assures timbre matching with the original instrument.
The Klaviphon is a plucked electric piano created in the Czech Republic in the 60s. Its sound is generated by reeds plucked by wooden hammers. The sound on the lower octaves is classic reed-based; on the upper register the timbre turns in to a Kalimba-like sound, due to the nature of the hammer-hit direction (from bottom to top on the reed-edge).
