XLN Audio has announced the release of Electric Grand, a new Addictive Keys piano library featuring a meticulously sampled Yamaha CP-80 electro-acoustic instrument.

Its recognizable sound can be heard on countless records from classic artists like U2, Peter Gabriel and ABBA, as well as contemporary acts like Keane and Miike Snow.

This new member of the Addictive Keys family combines three distinct characters in one instrument: The acoustic sound of hammers hitting strings, the direct line signal from the built in pickups, and finally a crunchy amped sound to add some grit to the mix.

This makes the Electric Grand very versatile and suitable for just about anything from indie rock and pop to house to R’n’B ballads.

Electric Grand features

  • Three disctinct characters in one.
  • Piano hammers and strings.
  • Recorded in a large studio.
  • Seven selectable mic perspectives.
  • Three ExploreMaps.
  • Addictive Keys engine included.

The Electric Grand for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS/standalone) is available to purchase for 69.95 EUR ex. VAT.
