GSi releases MrTramp2
GSi has released MrTramp2, a free electric piano instrument plug-in for Windows and Mac.
MrTramp2 is the sequel of my previous plugin “MrTramp”, a physical modeling simulation of the soulful Wurlitzer 200A Electric Piano.
What’s different in this new version? Firstly, it’s no more compiled in SynthEdit, it’s fully programmed in C++ so is now also available for Mac OSX in both VST and AU formats; secondly, it takes way less CPU and RAM; furthermore, this not the exact same algorithm used in the previous MrTramp, this is a new revised formula which gives more ‘bite’ on the lower octaves and more ‘body’ on the high notes.
- Velocity: adjusts the velocity response, use this in accordance to your MIDI controller’s settings to find the best action response.
- Hardness: adjusts the hardness ot the virtual “reeds”.
- Tremolo: turns on/off and adjusts the amount of tremolo, with a fixed frequency of 6 Hz, triangle waveform.
- Tone: a low pass filter, use this to brighten or darken the sound.
- Volume: guess what?…
MrTramp2 is available as a freeware instrument plug-in for PC and Mac (VST/AU).
