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.
