Gospel Musicians has released Neo-Soul Keys, an electric piano sample library for Kontakt and Kontakt Player.
When we first embarked on the incredible task of creating another electric piano library, we waited years for the right Suitcase to sample. With so many incredible options out there, we narrowed our focus in on one main goal and that was REALISM. We wanted to give you the most authentic and organic experience possible. When you bang down on the keys, we wanted you to hear and feel all of the grit, grunge, clank, and thud of a real electromechanical instrument. The second thing we wanted to do was to make sure that the library had BARK. In our opinion, we felt there was still a little room left for another electric piano sound that could offer that extra grit and silkiness at the same time. Our love for neo-soul music also has driven us to create a very specific sounding electric piano with the grit of hip-hop; the silkiness of R&B; and the soul in neo-soul. This is why you will be able to hear this creamy, buttery, and smooth sheen to our samples. It has that signature sound that you’ve been trying to get for years, but never quite mastered.
With all of that said, we can safely and assuredly say that you can leave your heavy 100lb Suitcase at home and use our library instead. So go ahead and replace all of your EP tracks with this new Neo-Soul Keys and transform the entire feel and warmth of your songs.
