Adam Monroe’s Mark 73 electric piano updated to v2.0


Adam Monroe Music has released an update to the Adam Monroe’s Mark 73 electric piano plugin featuring the sounds of a 1976 Rhodes Mark I Stage Piano.

Adam Monroe Mark73 v2

Version 2.0 of the instrument comes with a built-in phaser, chorus, autowah, and delay. It features smoothing and tone knobs and over 40 presets.

The entire keyboard was wrapped in tinfoil, which eliminated EMI noise. The Rhodes was sampled DI through a Radial Pro 48 DI box, and the signal was routed to a Fender Deluxe Reverb amp, recorded relatively clean through an AEA R84 Ribbon Mic and AEA TRP Preamp.

Each note of the 73-note Rhodes Piano was sampled 3 times at 10 velocity layers. Releases where sampled for the DI signal as well as the amped signal, but the amp release notes sounded a bit out of place, so the decision was made to only include DI releases. The sound of the amp can be heard in the amp samples, as a Fender Reverb Deluxe is a noisy amp, even without a signal. The DI samples are relatively clean by comparison.

Adam Monroe’s Mark 73 has been updated to support OS X Catalina. It is available for $25 USD in VST, AU and AAX plugin formats. Note that the Kontakt version of the instrument is no longer available.
