Wavesfactory releases Retro Keys I for Kontakt

Wavesfactory releases Retro Keys I, a Kontakt library featuring 3 keyboards from the 70s.

Wavesfactory Retro Key I

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.
  • The Organ X55 is a clonewheel made by Elka also in the 70s. Features 2 keyboards with 1 drawbar each, 3 piano sounds with optional sustain, percussion, 2 vibrato types, brilliance, cabinets, rotator, tube drive and a set of presets (including random values).

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).

Puremagnetik releases Mark Two Berlin

Puremagnetik has launched Mark Two Berlin, a distinctively unique and versatile instrument recorded from a restored Fender Rhodes MKII.

Puremagnetik Mark Two Berlin

Mark Two Berlin was salvaged from a Berlin collector and brought back to life after many months of restoration. It joins Puremagnetik’s Mark One Brooklyn in a league of electric piano instruments with a charm all their own – for those seeking real world character over perfection.

The Mark Two Berlin had 21 pickups completely replaced with new electronics, a few damper replacements and multiple tine adjustments and tunings. It was routed direct into a Zen modded Golden Age Pre 73 and recorded chromatically with 3 velocity layers per key.

The Live, Logic and Kontakt versions all come with 60 looped clips. The Live version includes Midi clips while the Logic and Kontakt versions contain Apple Loops.

Mark Two Berlin features

  • An expertly multisampled Rhodes Mark II instrument.
  • A collection of professionally performed looped clips.
  • 60 SIAL and Apple Loops for Logic Pro.
  • Custom KSP Kontakt interface for easy editing.

The library is available for purchase for $15 USD. Requires Ableton Live 9.1 and higher, Logic 10 and higher, or Kontakt 5 and higher.
