Spectrasonics announces Keyscape - Collector Keyboards

Spectrasonics has announced Keyscape - Collector Keyboards, a new virtual instrument featuring, say Spectrasonics, the largest selection of collector keyboards in the world, from "holy grail" pianos to keyboards most people didn't even know existed. Ten years in the making, each of these sought-after keyboards was carefully restored and then deeply multisampled by the Spectrasonics Sound Development Team.

Keyscape Models
The process began with going to the ends of the earth to find and restore each one of these rare instruments with technicians and expert craftsmen from each discipline. The Spectrasonics team spent years redoing these instruments from scratch until they were convinced they were "right." This attention to detail and care given to each instrument allowed them to develop these sounds.

Keyscape Recording
Keyscape is designed to be equally useful in the studio for producers and composers. Since the instruments can be transformed into "unreal" sounds with the STEAM Engine under the hood, Keyscape can turn the historical instruments into innovative new sounds of the Future.

Custom Controls
The Custom Controls presented for each Patch allow a user to go beyond the original sound. The interface includes performance controls and creative effects processing, specially crafted for each Patch. Hundreds of included Patches showcase the versatility and ability to customize the sounds.

Authentic Expression
With many of these collector instruments, it's really the imperfections that make them so interesting. Instead of cleaning up all the quirks and noises they make, Spectrasonics made sure to closely capture them. Their software team closely modeled the authentic behavior and mojo of vintage amplifiers, classic effects units, and unique subtleties like mechanical noises, pedal noises, and release overtones to bring these sounds to a whole new level of authenticity and dynamic expression.

Hybrid "Duo" Sounds
Along with the hundreds of patches based on the 36 instrument models, Keyscape includes special hybrid "Duo" sounds which combine two of the instruments to create something entirely new. The unique timbre of these Duo patches make them some of the most creative and inspiring sounds in Keyscape.

Omnisphere Integration
As a bonus for Omnisphere 2 users, Keyscape also integrates fully as a satellite instrument within the Omnisphere interface. Keyscape will simply appear as a library inside Omnisphere's browser for users of both plugins. Not only is it a significant expansion of new patches and soundsources, this capability really allows Omnisphere 2 users to harness the full synthesis power of the STEAM Engine to explore endless new sonic possibilities and combinations.

Technical Specifications:

  • Huge library with over 500 "Best-in-class" sounds, 36 Instrument Models and Hybrid "Duo" Patches.
  • Deeply Multisampled sounds with up to 32-way velocity switching, Round Robins, etc.
  • Mechanical Noise, Pedal Noise and Release Noise behavior modeling.
  • Patches feature authentic circuit modeled amplifiers and effects.
  • Available as Download (77 GB) or Boxed USB Drives Edition.
  • Optional "Lite" installation (30 GB) for stage use.
  • Full Omnisphere 2 integration.

System Requirements For All Users:

  • 2.2 GHz Intel dual core processor or higher.
  • 8GB RAM minimum.
  • Solid State Drive recommended.
  • 80 GB of free hard drive space (30 GB for lite install).

*32-bit hosts are not supported for Keyscape. However, Keyscape sounds can be played within Omnisphere 2 which can operate in 32-bit hosts.

Price: $399. Keyscape will be available September 12th, 2016.
