Product Overview

This is the 140 sample version of the 80s EP FM. 4 velocity layers, 4 keys per octave and release samples. There are two more of them coming: 80s EP Bright and Warm. The Kontakt versions are already on this site. This instrument works in Logic 7.2 and up, GarageBand 2 and up, Halion 2 and up and anything that loads sfz instruments, like Alchemy Player and Sforzando. There's also a Reaktor map. 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 for Kontakt. 88 keys sampled in 12 velocity layers. No software emulation beats the expressiveness and bite of the real thing. I audited thousands of EP presets and customized 32 of my favourites on my TX802/DX7II and then sampled 4 like all the virtual Wurlitzers and Rhodes out there: extremely detailed and programmed to behave exactly like the original. 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. More info in the manual.
