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.
There are three more of them: 80s EP Bright, 80s EP Classic and 80s EP FM. The FM 140 is free.

No software emulation beats the expressiveness and bite of the real thing. I played around two thousand EP presets and customized 32 of my favourites on my TX802/DX7II and then sampled 4 like all the virtual Wurlitzers and Rhodes out there: highly detailed and programmed to behave exactly like the original.

The "Warm" is a unique preset. The attack is a little like a lithophone – a stone marimba – and the decay is dark, especially when playing soft. It has a natural tremolo.

Requires the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher. The 80s EPs will only work for 30 minutes in the free Kontakt Player.

If you already have the 140 sample version for Kontakt from Sampleism, there's no need to buy this one, just buy the upgrade for $15 and add the 80s EP Warm 140 folder to the 80s EP Warm Pro folder.

In the demo below you can hear the same MIDI file rendered by by TX802 module, the Pure version for Kontakt, the Coloured version, the 140 version and finally FM8 using the same preset.
In the video you can see what the instrument is capable of. Also, download the free 80s EP FM 140, it has the same engine.
