Waves Audio releases "Clavinet" and "Pianos & Keys Bundle" with Intro Offers

Waves

Waves Audio has announced it is now shipping the Waves Clavinet and the Waves Pianos & Keys Bundle, the latest additions to its expanding line of virtual instruments.

Waves Clavinet
Intro price: $29 (reg. $69)

The original Clav has always held a special appeal in funk, fusion, rock and soul music for its unique percussive playability and sonic versatility, from brilliant, vibrant, nitty and gritty to soft, rich, mellow tones. Waves has now accurately sampled one of the funkiest keyboards in existence: the iconic D6 model Clavinet, made famous by Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, Sly & the Family Stone and many more.

Recreating all the dynamic control, feel and expression of the original funkified icon, Waves has sampled every texture, articulation and hammer tip string-striking mechanic of the authentic D6 Clavinet in both the muted and unmuted modes.

Using only a few controls, you can achieve an array of deep sonic textures, capturing the distinctive timbre of the Clav's unique single-coil pickups. Choose from the selection of factory presets, featuring patches modeled after Stevie Wonder's "Superstition," Billy Preston's "Outta Space" and other classic songs; or shape your own tones using the built-in auto-wah, amp overdrive and other effects.

Waves Clavinet features:

  • Sampled from the original D6 model Clavinet.
  • Built-in FX section including advanced auto-wah, phaser, chorus, reverb.
  • Full velocity response mix control with key up and mechanics features.
  • Customizable EQ section for further tone shaping.
  • Mute slider control for decayed staccato or mellow sustain.
  • Amp overdrive control with tube condenser and dynamic microphone selectors.
  • Global tune control; MIDI assignable.
  • 32-bit & 64-bit.
  • NKS-ready for NI Komplete Kontrol and Maschine.
  • HD and SD sample libraries.
  • Can be used as a plugin or as a standalone instrument.
  • Powered by the Waves Sampler Engine (WSE).
