Gospel Musicians has released Neo-Soul Suitcase, a Fender Rhodes sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.
The Neo-Soul Suitcase Library for Kontakt 4 is a very specific urban sounding suitcase that is designed to reproduce the exact sound, feel, and playability of a real Electric Piano Suitcase with the detail and expressiveness of the Fender cabinet and, of course, the most beautiful vibrato. Our #1 goal was to make sure that if you were not able to take a real rhodes to your gig or studio, then this plugin would be the next best thing.
Our rhodes sound is a combination of samples (2.6GB), physical modeling, and complex impulse response algorithms that will give you the grit of hip-hop; the silkiness of R&B; and the soul in neo-soul. Our absolute number one goal was realism and with vintage modeled effects; complex impulse response algorithms; and tweak-able knobs for ultimate control, you will have the best rhodes experience ever produced in a plugin. With all of this, we can safely say that you can leave your Rhodes at home and replace it with the Neo-Soul Suitcase!
