Studio Vintage Series: Wurlitzer – Electric Piano KONTAKT
The Studio Vintage Series Wurli is the most comprehensively deep-sampled Wurlitzer ever created. Recorded and processed at 24-Bit / 96Khz at our famous British Studio through a large custom NEVE desk. The Studio Wurli contains both standard (Sustains and Staccato w/ RR) and prepared articulations (Muted Tines). All standard sustain samples were recorded with both pedals up and pedal down positions. In addition, we also added staccato (w/ round robin) for fast playing styles. We also opened up the Wurlitzer and recorded the internal mechanics, including gently muting the tines for a different type of sound as well as individually recording the internal speaker for a truly authentic sound.
The Vintage Studio Wurli contains a multitude different types of vintage microphones and 2 different types of world-class reverbs. The microphones includes Neumann 87’s, Coles, Neve SE Ribbon’s, AKG 414’s, Neumann KM 184’s and a mixed microphone position, which was made by combining all 24 microphones used in the sessions. We also recorded all samples through two world-class reverbs (Bricasti and TC-Electronics 6000), so you have the best microphones and reverbs right at your fingertips. The Wurlitzer was recorded with a 100% analog NEVE Pre-Amp Signal Flow and further enhanced with a physical hardware chain, including Manley Vari-Mu Compressor, Original Urei 1176 (Pre-Universal Audio), Original DBX 160, Neve 33609 Compressor.
The Studio Wurli also includes full control over velocity response, tremolo depth and rate controls, authentic resonance, release triggers, pedal volume, analog noise control and full ADSR controls.
The Studio Wurlitzer represents the grittiest deep sampled Wurlitzer ever recorded. After searching and sampling multiple Wurlitzers we found the one – Our Studio Wurli. With just the right mixture of character, depth, warmth and bite this truly vintage machine has seen it all and is now ready to join you in your studio.
The Vintage Studio Wurli contains over 29,000 samples and a gorgeous fully 3D rendered interface. Everything was lovingly recorded at a incredibly well known British Studio through custom NEVE Consoles and offers you the most versatile Wurlitzer we have ever played. Whether you want the best studio microphones (ex. Neumann u87, Cole, Neve Ribbon Mics). The best reverbs (ex. Bricasti M7 or TC 6000). The best hardware, amplifiers or signal path. It is all there at your finger tips.
What sets the Vintage Studio Wurli apart from competitors is not just the great recordings, programming or stunning lay-out. But it’s also the wealth of features – allowing you to dial in precisely the sound you want. Whether it’s controlling the dynamic feel of the Wurlitzer with a single mouse drag, the resonance, pedal volume, ADSR or even the sounds of your hands muting the tines. No engineering degree required. It all just makes sense.
We sampled the Studio Wurli through two of the best studio reverbs in the world (TC6000 and Bricasti), so you get access to the sweetest sound of all. The reverbs can be activated with a single click and gives you instant access and control over the two reverbs that have defined studio reverbs more than anything else. You can control both pan, spread and volume of each reverbs. No more convolution. We literally sampled the Studio Wurli through them using a pristine signal path designed by some of the worlds best engineers.
The Studio Wurli gives you access to the best studio microphones. Neumann u87’s & KM 184’s. Neve SE Ribbons, Royers, AKG 414’s all capturing a vintage VOX Amplifier, a pristine MESA Boogie Amplifier, a variety of internal mechanics and built in speakers, and of course a sweet mixed microphone position made from them all. So in essence you have 13 microphone perspectives, including 3 direct paths including DI Clean, DI Crush and DI Warm, spacious hardware reverb, true analog tape, built in speaker sounds, and internal mechanics… Engineering doesn’t get finer than this.
The Studio Wurli contains our Chaos FX system, which allows you to do virtually anything you desire. Whether its modulation, precision EQ, bit-crushing or distortion, stereo-delay or dual convolution reverbs. We also added our latest convolutions, which allows you create Textural Convolution Delays on top of the existing stereo-delay and convolution reverb.
