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.

Native Instruments has announced the release of an update to the Kontakt-based instrument George Duke Soul Treasures.

Native Instruments George Duke Soul Treasures

The update focuses on enhanced time-stretching, made possible by recent updates to the KONTAKT 5 engine. The new time-stretching provides a much smoother, high-quality sound when changing tempo or pitch shifting, adding a new flexibility to the loops and phrases, and making it easier to incorporate them into any production. Native Instruments has published a collection of new audio demos, showcasing the time-stretched loops in action that can be found on the Native Instruments website.

GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES is a vital resource for producers looking for the sound of authentic soul. The instrument provides over 500 sliced and tempo-synced keyboard loops and phrases, recorded exclusively for Native Instruments by American soul and jazz legend George Duke. Instruments used include acoustic, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and Clavinet pianos, recorded using highly sought-after vintage equipment. The instrument provides an immediate harmonic basis and is an ideal starting point for hip-hop, R&B or soulful electronic productions.

The updated GEORGE DUKE SOUL TREASURES runs in the latest version of KONTAKT or the free KONTAKT PLAYER.

To mark this update, the price of the product has been reduced by 50% for one week only. From March 12th to March 19th 2012, the instrument is available for $59.50 USD / 49.50 EUR, exclusively at the NI Online Shop.

Hollow Sun releases Tubelitzer for Kontakt

Hollow Sun has released Tubelitzer, an electric piano sample library for Native Instruments Kontakt.

Hollow Sun Tubelizer

We are extremely pleased to announce a new library – ‘Tubelitzer’, a valve/tube-based Wurlitzer 120 electric piano from the late 50s/early 60s, the one used by Ray Charles on his early hit, “What I’d Say”, which earned him some mainstream recognition.

Sampled chromatically with full length samples (no looping) and up to 27 velocity layers per note and release samples, this is an authentic recreation of a rare piece of music history…

We’ve taken some liberties with the functionality that departs from the original somewhat – adding tremolo, balance and stereo spread plus variable velocity curves, hum, etc.. There are also ten ‘factory’ presets plus provision to save ten of your own.

But it doesn’t end there – it also comes with a virtual pedalboard of stomp boxes to add a wide range of effects.. With distortion, cab simulator, chorus, phase shifter, rotary speaker, echo and convolution reverb (featuring a wide range of custom impulses from vintage springs, plates, rooms, etc., to halls and massive ambiences), the effects allows you to transform the sound quite dramatically.

Tubelitzer features

  • 44.1kHz/24-Bit.
  • Full length, chromatic samples.
  • Up to 27 velocity layers per note.
  • Release samples.
  • GUI adds extra functionality.
  • Comprehensive multiFX with phaser, chorus and delay.
  • Convolved reverb with a wide range of impulses.

Tubelitzer for Kontakt (requires Kontakt 4.2.3 full version) is available for £30 GBP.
