Elektra is an imaginary/designed electric piano from the fifties. Quite far from Rhodes and Wurlitzer sound, it comes with a smokey and dreamy sound all over its 88 keys.
Its engine is based on a FM piano made by me with Reaktor 5 some years ago.
Every note is sampled using three instances of my Reaktor ELECTROPIANO, set different from each other. The central instance is the body, the left one is cutted on the high frequencies and em-phatized basses dispite the right one with low frequencies cutted and emphatized high ones.
The Tremolo is lead by an LFO sine wave that controls the pan of the sound. It can be activated by the relative button on the right side and its speed controlled by the relative knob on the left side.
The Felt button smoothes the sound and the Convolution Reverb is activated by the button while the size of the reverb is handled by the knob. The samples are divided by soft and hard for a more realistic touch on the keyboard.
A weighted keyboard is recommended ;)
I like the ibrary and it is absolutely ok fo the price bu i wished it would kick more off - do not know exactly how to say what i feel about this. The sond is ok but not...le us say unique. But what do you expect from a library wit these conditions (for a fw bucks)? This makes me say only four of five stars
Nice little appetizer
A minimalistic e-piano library with a rather restricted FX section and no snapshots. It's free and therefore it's okay. But nothing to write home about...
