Pure Wurlitzer© Sound, Uncompromised Playability
Just like for the VTines and the B-5 Organ, Acousticsamples have combined synthesis techniques and sampling to achieve a high level of playability and tweaking while maintaining a realistic sound.
This allows the VReeds to weight only 70Mb and to really sound like a Wurlitzer© Electric Piano with all of its imperfections while having a fully continuous response (if you're not convinced, listen to the 127 velocity example in our video) as well as a highly tweakable sound.
There are a few Wurlitzer Electric Pianos, but the most famous ones are the 200 and the 200A. There are subtle differences between the two models mainly due to the thickness of the Reeds and the amplifier circuit. Instead of choosing one, it was decided to sample the two models and offer you the choice from the interface.
VReeds is based on real samples of two Wurlitzer models, a 200 and a 200A. They were both fully restored with original and well adjusted Reeds, and had a precise action that allowed for a perfect sampling while keeping all of the vintage Wurlitzer sound characteristics.
Acousticsamples' modeling method gives you access to a 100% continuous response, a very small sized library (70Mb for both models) and a very high tweakability.
It also ensures that the staccatos and releases that make up for half of the realism sound perfect, not like a fadeout, not too loud, just perfect.

Support & Compatibility :
VReeds comes with its own sample player, the UVI Workstation 3 (requires v3.0.0 or later).
We provide it for free with every library that you buy, you don't need to buy an expensive sampler to use our products. It works on Mac (10.7 or later) and PC (Windows 7 or later), in standalone or as a plugin (VST / AU / AAX ) and in 64 bits only. You can find more info about it here.
UVI Workstation v3.0.0 is required for the library to function properly, the VReeds will not work on Windows XP, or OSX 10.6, it will not work on a Muse Receptor either.
The distributed library is 70Mb compressed in lossless flac format (this includes two models: a 200 and a 200A, retina graphics and presets), the overall equivalent wav file size is about 315Mb.
