Plugin Boutique has launched a sale on the 1959 Electro-Acoustic Piano by Sampleson, a spectral modeled piano instrument based on an expired patent from 1959 filed by Leo Fender.

The sound of 1959 can be described as CP80-like but a bit more tuned due to the fewer number of strings.

Does it sound like the original one? Sampleson don’t know, because it has never been built. And they won’t build it (for the moment). But the experience of bringing to life an instrument that never existed, was super-exciting.

The resulting sound of this virtual instrument is warm, clean and bright. The expressiveness of the piano action Sampleson emulated gives it a nice and wide range of timbres. From warm lows to metallic shines on higher velocities.

1959 Electro-Acoustic Piano is available for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/Standalone), priced $45 USD until April 30th, 2023. The regular price is $59 USD.
