Sampleism

Product Overview

This is a 140 sample version of the 80s EP FM. 4 velocity layers, 4 keys per octave and release samples. There are three more of them: 80s EP Bright, 80s EP Classic and 80s EP Warm. This one is a customized version of the popular FM Rhodes sound. In the demo you'll hear the same midi file rendered by the original synth, then by the two Pro versions, then the 140 sample version and finally FM8 so you can compare. The manual/eula is in the preview zip, check before you buy. The 80s EPs are virtual versions of 4 iconic 80s EP sounds from the Yamaha DX7 Mark II, each counting 1144 24bit/48kHz samples for the Pro versions. 12 velocity layers. No software emulation beats the expressiveness and bite of the real thing. I audited thousands of EP presets and customized four of my favourites on my TX802/DX7II and then sampled them like all the virtual Wurlitzers and Rhodes out there: extremely detailed and programmed to behave exactly like the original. Requires the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher. The 80s EP will work for 30 minutes in the free Kontakt Player every time but you won't be able to deep edit them. For producing a track where you need the sound in the background the 140 sample versions will suffice, for realistic sound, playing and solo's, upgrade to the Pro version.
