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.
