Cineplus has released The Duet EP, a sample based e-piano instrument reminiscent of the 80’s.
the Duet EP is based on 2 classic patches. One is a DX7 Patch, the other is an RD-1000 Patch (without chorus), which have been edited, sampled and combined up to 16 times, to create a totally new, but classic and original electric piano instrument.
The Duet features
- 1: The Rack — 8 x DX7 Electric Piano
Imagine playing 8 FM E-pianos 1 at a time. And applying to each one a different pitch, pan and delay. Now you can. We sampled the DX7 FM e-piano using the same care you would expect from a Grand Piano sampling. 88 individual keys, each in 17 velocity layers, using the finest analog equipment: Custom high end DI, Apogee Converters and an analog Studer Console.
- 2: M-Possible — 8 x MKS-20 EP-2
We used the highest sampling standards to capture the essence of the sweetest and most dynamics e-piano in the history. Without Chorus! Why no chorus? because if you play different notes in different times with “baked” chorus, the result is a mess. We recreated a live and editable chorus by layering 8X EP2 layers.
The Duet EP is available for purchase for $29.99 USD. Requires Logic Pro X to take full advantage of the live editable Stacks. For use in other DAWs, The Duet EP comes with a generic EXS format, with a “baked” 16x bonus stack.

Critical Vibrations has announced the release of Home PlaneT Electric Piano, a free Ableton Live instrument.
These samples were graciously provided by Greg Sullivan, who sampled his own Pianet T in two velocity layers, which is more than enough since the T only exhibits a subtle sound change in its playing dynamics.
One interesting thing about the Pianet T is that it has a distinct release sound, from the action of the pads striking the reeds and then coming off them. Of course, the release samples are included in this instrument, and you can dial in your desired volume.
This Ableton version of the Hohner Pianet T, we’ve dubbed the Home PlaneT, since there are some spacey effects added, which can be controlled using Macro knobs.
The Live pack is a free download at Critical Vibrations.

Wavesfactory releases Retro Keys I, a Kontakt library featuring 3 keyboards from the 70s.
Retro Keys I is a collection of 3 libraries based on famous keyboards from the 70s. Perfectly replicated with all the original features and more.
- The Compac is an electric piano made by Crumar in 1972 that features 3 piano sounds (piano, honky tonk and clavichord). Noise, envelope and cabinets also available.
- The Orchestrator was also made by Crumar in 1975, is an electric piano and a “string machine” with a brass simulator. Bass, brass, piano, clavichord, violin, cello; with vibrato, cabinets, noise, envelope and presets.

All keyboards have an option called “vintage”. When it’s active some effects are applied to give a very nice vintage vibe to the sound (tape distortion, compression, wow, flutter and speed variations). We love it and we’re sure you’ll love it too.
The library is available for the introductory price of 9.95 EUR until November 1st, 2014 (regular 19.95 EUR).
