Product Overview

The Purgatory Creek Soundware Tine Collection includes no less than four tine-based electro-mechanical pianos spanning nearly twenty years of manufacture. Each captures the essence of the era in which it was produced.

If you're unsure whether this is right for you, here's a short example of what's included in Tine Collection

Sparkletop (1965)

The original piano was manufactured in the 1965. Unique to the Sparkletop series was the use of traditional felt hammer heads rather than the neoprene tips found on later models. In addition, it used Raymac tines for a very full tone. These elements, combined with its unique electronics, provided a tone unlike any other tine-based piano.
The Purgatory Creek Soundware Sparkletop was sampled at 18 velocity levels recorded for the full duration, so you will hear neither loops nor artificial envelope decays. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled, and eight velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.

Mark I (1975)

This instrument was manufactured in 1975, a year considered by many to be the golden era for pianos from this manufacturer. It featured the coveted Torrington tines, neoprene hammer tips and partial wood hammers. The tone is rich, full and expressive.
It was sampled at 19 velocity levels recorded for the full duration, so you will hear neither loops nor artificial envelope decays. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled, and eight velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.

Mark II (1980)

The Mark II piano was noted for its modular action and Schaller tines, which gave it a somewhat different tone than the earlier models. The bass is rich with the treble section more bell-like.
Deeply sampled at 16 velocity levels for the full duration of the note, it provides an accurate sound with no artificial decay envelopes or sample loops. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled, and eight velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.

Mark V (1984)

The Mark V piano, introduced in 1984, was the last revision of the famous tine-based piano produced by this electric piano manufacturer. It included many enhancements that resulted in a truly excellent instrument.
The Purgatory Creek Soundware Mark V was sampled at 20 velocity levels for full duration, providing an accurate sound with no artificial decay envelopes or sample loops. Additionally, 20 velocity layers of release samples are included.

Interface

The layout of the Kontakt instruments is similar. You will find a three-band equalizer, volume for the release samples and a velocity curve dialog box which allows the user to adjust the instrument to respond to touch. In addition, each has controls for the stereo vibrato, phaser and reverb effects. Finally, a number of amp simulations are provided.
In all, you have four deeply sampled tine-based electro-mechanical pianos in a single collection at a very reasonable price.
