Electric Grand 80 Piano is described as "a perfect sampling of the legendary 80-model electric grand piano, faithfully sampled from the classic electric grand piano which defined 80s pop, rock and R&B hits by Elton John, George Duke and many others and served electronic music innovators from Vangelis to the present".

Featured on hits by Peter Gabriel, Journey, U2, The Police, Herbie Hancock, Phil Collins, Toto, Hall & Oates, Billy Joel and countless others, the original 80-model electric grand continues to be a favorite among modern rock bands like Keane and electronic musicians such as Ulrich Schnauss.

Electric grands are known for their reverberated chords and polished, shiny leads. Since the original model electric piano uses fewer strings per key than other models, it creates a tone that can be more easily mixed into your music compared to traditional acoustic piano. The Waves version brings to life this electro-acoustic sound, with features from the original such as tone controls and tremolo. Also included is Sustain Resonance, which controls the simulated sympathetic resonance of unplayed strings – perfect for adding depth to long chords and solos alike.

The instrument's mixer section lets you blend four separately sampled sounds from the original piano: the main sound, the key up, the internal mechanics, and the sustain pedal. With high-quality effects plus a compressor and limiter included, it provides everything you need to play Electric Grand 80 in the studio or live on stage.

Electric Grand 80 Features:

  • Sampled from the classic 80-model electric grand piano heard on hits by Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Journey, Herbie Hancock and many others.
  • Includes tone controls from the original instrument.
  • Mix section for adding different sampled sounds from the original (key up, mechanics, sustain pedal).
  • Compressor and limiter included.
  • Effects include tremolo, autopan, phaser, chorus, reverb.
  • Can be played as a plugin or a standalone instrument.
