UltimateSoundBank Releases Retro Keyboards
UltimateSoundBank has released the fifth UVI Soundcard, Retro Keyboards, which includes seven legendary instruments in what USB calls “stunning audiophile detail, with a range of expression that feels like the real thing under your fingers.” (nice copywriting! –Ed.) The list also includes three “eras” of a classic tine-based electric piano: a famous electro-acoustic piano; a soulful reed piano; one funky keyboard plus his little brother.
Each instrument is organized into “families” of presets to simulate the essential vocabulary of these classic keyboards, including Amp simulator, Tremolo, Vinyl emulation, and more. These presets can be designed thanks to the Plugsound Pro sound design section, which allows you to add up to four effects per instruments, from convolution reverberation to analog modeled Chorus and Flanger, from a Studio Limiter to high-class EQ, etc. This section also provides Filters and 4 LFOs per instrument. Plugsound Pro can import up to 64 Retro Keyboards instruments for creative layers and splits, and much more.
Retro Keyboards runs stand-alone, hosted as a plug-in under all formats via the included Universal UVI Player (VST, AU, DX, RTAS, MAS – Windows and Mac OS X), or within Plugsound Pro and MOTU’s Mach5 V2 sampler.
UltimateSoundBank’s Retro Keyboards sells for $199. More information on UltimateSoundBank Retro Keyboards.
