Acousticsamples releases Wurlie – Wurlitzer Student Electronic Piano sound library

Acousticsamples has released Wurlie, a sampled 64 keys Wurlitzer 206A piano.

The 206A is a student model, and is very similar to a 200A except for its beige color and built in amp/speaker (it also did not come with a tremolo). It was designed to be paired with a 206, which is the teacher model and they were mainly used in conservatories. The teacher had a headphone and microphone to be able to listen to each student individually and talk to them without others hearing them.

We recorded it both from the direct output using a state of the art DI (Universal Audio Solo 610) and also using a pair of microphones right above the keys next to where the head of a player would be. We also included our common features like the multiple releases along with our sympathetic resonance system (both pedal up and down). You also have access to various commonly used effects and a full control over the midi parameters to make it fit to your keyboards response.

  • Saturation, chorus and flanger effects.

Acousticsamples powered by UVI Workstation 2

Acousticsamples – the editor of acoustic soundbanks like Telematic, Kawai Ex Pro, Mark 79, JBass etc. – has updated all their instruments to UVI format.

From now on, Acousticsamples soundbanks work properly in UVI Workstation 2, the free powerful player of MachFive 3.

“The engine, the script, the effects, all these possibilities made us want to use the UVI format for all of our products and only it. Supporting different formats was a hard task, there were inconsistencies between formats, limitations of some engines, and UVI had the answer to all of these problems, it is rock solid, works on all platforms, is easy to work with and has the most advanced script engine in the world. Licensing with UVI gave us the opportunity to have all of our libraries available for everybody, and deliver them with their own powerful player.” — Acousticsamples CEO, Arnaud SICARD

“UVI is very pleased to welcome Acousticsamples on board. They are one of the most hardcore scripters in the industry, and offer some of the most detailed instruments on the market (their Telematic guitar is just amazing!). It’s definitely a good sign for the future.” — UVI Creative Manager, Alain ETCHART

UVI Workstation 2 is available for 32/64-bit Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/MAS).
