The 80s EPs are virtual versions of 4 iconic 80s EP sounds from the Yamaha DX7 Mark II, each counting two times 1144 24-bit/48kHz samples for the Pro versions. 88 keys sampled in 12 velocity layers. The 140 versions have 140 samples. The 80s EP FM 140 is Free!
There are three more of them: 80s EP Bright, Classic, and Warm.
No software emulation beats the expressiveness and bite of the real thing. I played around two thousand EP presets, customized 32 of my favourites on my TX802/DX7II and then sampled 4 like all the virtual Wurlitzers and Rhodes out there: extremely detailed and programmed to behave exactly like the original.
"FM" is based on the popular FM Roads preset.
In the demo below you can hear the same MIDI file rendered by by TX802 module, the Pro versions Pure and Coloured, the 140 version and finally FM8 using the same preset.
Check out the demo of the Classic Pro too so you can hear what the instrument is capable of, it has the same engine.
Requires the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher. The 80s EPs will only work for 30 minutes in the free Kontakt Player.
