Gospel Musicians updates Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate to v3.1

Gospel Musicians Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate

Gospel Musicians has announced version 3.1 of the Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate, a virtual instrument library for UVI & MachFive, featuring 5 electric piano emulations.

Neo-Soul Keys® is our flagship product and combining our samples with the UVI Workstation makes for an amazing electric piano experience.

When combined with advanced scripting and the amazing effects of the UVI Workstation, this is our best version yet.

Changes in Neo-Soul Keys 5X Ultimate v3.1

  • 24-bit sustain samples (10.5GB Total).
  • Added a new preset system so you don’t have to keep loading new presets every time. Now all of the presets are stored inside of one combo EP. You can also add your own presets within the new combo preset system. Just make sure you save the entire preset when making and saving within the system.
  • Includes Lite presets from the the 3X Lite version that was released previously. This version is for customers who use Mainstage and have to conserve CPU and RAM.
  • Now the sustain sample’s release matches the Kontakt version.
  • All LFO sync functions for effects, panning and volume are now accurate when syncing to a DAW. New algorithms have been applied.
  • Lower Volume Mechanics – Sometimes the Mechanical effects can be a little loud. A preset version is available that has lower volume mechanical effects for a more subtle mechanical sound.
  • Re-Calibrated the Amp Sims so that they don’t cause some patches to peak. Some amp sims have more energy than others and we calibrated the Amp sims thus not to peak.
  • Added two new UK Amp Sims for a super warm and deep bass sound. This is especially useful when playing key bass.
  • Created disk and arrow push-down icons for all preset menus. Previously there was no graphical indication when the effects preset’s arrow was pressed.
  • Added Volume and Pan vibrato/tremolo option. The vibrato panning function clashed in a weird way when combined with the chorus, flanger, and phaser. This is because these effects use panning already and combining the two summed the output.
  • The Auto-Wah now replaces the Funky Wah. As an update to the newest UVI workstation, there is now a new Wah-Wah effect that sounds great. Allows for you to use rate and depth for an Auto-Wah, or you can assign the Wah effect to a pedal controller by right clicking and learning.
  • The Suitcase tines are generally bright, but a darker Suitcase tine patch has been added for diversity and a darker EP tone.

Neo-Soul Keys 5X is available to purchase for $199.99 USD.

Gospel Musicians has announced the release of EX5 and Dyno, two new electric pianos for Neo-Soul Keys for iPad.

Gospelmusicians EX5 / Dyno for Neo-Soul Keys iPad

Neo-Soul EX5 is an electric piano library that uses the EP synthesis technology from the Yamaha EX5 synthesizer. Gospel Musicians sampled their electric piano through the FDSP engine of the EX5 to simulate the physical modeled expression of an EP pickup. There is a new dedicated knob that will control more of the EP Pickup sound.

Neo-Soul Dyno is an emulation of the popular “Dyno-My-Piano.” Utilizing wavetable and sampling techniques Gospel Musicians designed it to achieve an extremely expressive and playable emulation of a Dyno electric piano sound.

There are other minor bug fixes and improvements as well as a new chorus algorithm that is intended to be warmer and richer than the previous version.

The EX5 and Dyno electric pianos are available to purchase from the App Store for $9.99 USD each.
