XLN Audio releases Electric Grand for Addictive Keys, a new Addictive Keys piano library featuring a meticulously sampled Yamaha CP-80 electro-acoustic instrument. With three distinct sonic characteristics captured in seven different ways, you’ll have no shortage of great sounds at your fingertips.
This unique instrument combines three distinct characters (acoustic hammers, direct line output, and amplified output) captured in seven different ways. When combined with the powerful Addictive Keys engine, Electric Grand becomes an extraordinarily inspiring instrument that is suitable for anything from Indie Rock and Pop to House to RnB ballads.
Electric grand pianos have hammers and strings just like acoustic pianos. However, unlike acoustic pianos, these pianos have pickups under the strings that feed the sound to an amplifier—just like an electric guitar or bass. The combination of acoustic, electric, and amplified sources lets you craft unique piano-like textures that are more harmonically complex and interesting than a typical acoustic piano.
The Addictive Keys engine plays back the instrument with incredible detail and the advanced studio effects accurately model the tremolo and tone controls of the original instrument. In addition, it lets you push the sonic boundaries beyond what the original instrument could accomplish.
We recorded the CP-80 in several ways to maximize options for our outstanding team of sound designers.
