Features
 

The Mark I

The Mark I

From Lounge to Fusion, from Jazz to Electro - the Mark I is omnipresent. Its unique sound fits in a variety of genres but remains unmistakably recognizable. Session Keys Electric R is based on a vintage 1976 Mark I Stage Piano, specially modified with eight individual outputs to capture every nuance of its classic sound.

 

Sound Design

Sound Design

Electric R offers great customization options. Details such as sustain resonance, key noises, release, and reverse samples are quickly and easily manipulated. Electric R even allows for virtual adjusting of the distance between tines and pick-ups, and control of the quantity of "unplugged" miked sound.
In addition to recording electrical output signals, an extensive microphone set-up was used to capture the pure, unaltered acoustic sound of the instrument.
The FX section of Electric R features classic electric piano effects such as Tremolo, Chorus, Amp Simulation, Delay and Reverb.

 

Studio and Live

Studio and Live

The tonal landscape of the Electric R offers everything from mellow soundscapes to barking riffs, and you even can switch instantly between two different sample sets: Studio and Live.
Studio was recorded directly through high-end pre-amps and A/D converters, reproducing the piano’s clear, bell-like character.
Live uses classic vintage outboard equipment and pre-amps for an edgier, rougher version of the instrument.

 

Pentamorph

Pentamorph

The stylish Pentamorph can give the classic stage piano a new, complex voice in a matter of seconds using a single control: select one of the five main characteristics or any position between. Morph from pure acoustic sound via electric to reverse in realtime.
Instant flexible control in a single knob.
