The soul and character of a unique electric piano
Sampled to capture the nuances of the original vintage instrument, the Electric 88 comes with effects, compressor and amp added.
Over time, vintage pianos tend to sound different from key to key. They detune, change in tone and become non-linear. The fascinating thing is that these audible imperfections creates a beautiful and unique instrument, one that can move you emotionally when you hear it.
This is something Waves kept in mind when creating the Electric 88. They decided to sample a unique “road-worn” piano, carefully capturing the non-linearity of the individual keys to preserve its charming character. When they sampled the piano, they had each key played multiple times by hand to give it a real human feel. The result is a phenomenal electric piano full of personality and a sound that will instantly be reminiscent of classic ‘70s pianos: full of funk and soul.
Electric 88 also gives you the tools to create a wide variety of diverse sounds. Use the mix section to control the level of the internal mechanics, tines and key-up sound, or the Formant control to shift the samples upward or downwards for an interesting new dimension of tone and character. Also included are high-quality tremolo, autopan, phaser, chorus and reverb effects and controls for boosting bass, mid and treble frequencies, making sure that Electric 88 always finds its way into the mix. Combine this with the compressor or amp, and you can achieve anything from mellow and heavenly jazz tones to distorted rock riffs.
