Electric Keys’ 2.0 – MPC Expansion By MPC Samples

MPC Samples have released version 2 of their highly acclaimed Electeic Keys expansion pack for MPC users (check compatibility).

New Version 2.0: Now with 8 legendary electric pianos, all fully multisampled over an incredible 8 velocity layers – the most realistic electric pianos ever created for the MPC!

The classic electric piano sound is an essential part of any producer’s arsenal and with Electric Keys 2 we set out to produce the most authentic, living and breathing recreations of these classic EPs:

  • Rhodes Mark I – The classic electric piano, famously used on the Doors ‘Riders on a Storm’, the Beatles ‘Get Back’ and pretty much everything by Herbie Hancock. This one is an 88 key stage model with an exceptionally smooth tone. With 9 unique sound patches.
  • Rhodes Mark II – A 73 key suitcase model; this one has a slightly thicker tone than the Mark I. With 10 unique sound patches.
  • Wurlitzer 200A – The classic reed-based piano, as used on ‘Heard It Through the Grapevine’. With 10 sound patches.
  • Wurlitzer 140B – Predecessor of the 200A, with a completely different feel and tone. (6 patches).
  • Hohner Clavinet D6 – With its unmistakable and funky rhythmical sound, often used by Stevie Wonder. This was recorded with key noise releases and with muted/unmuted versions. 6 patches.
  • Hohner Pianet N – The popular 1960s reed piano, as used by the Beatles on many classic tracks, includes a patch with additional key release noises. (9 patches).
  • Hohner Electra – An electric piano with a distinctive ‘dirty harp’ sound, famously used on Led Zep’s ‘Stairway to Heaven’. (8 patches).
  • Yamaha DX7 – while the DX7 is not an electric piano itself, this is an 8 velocity layer recording of the classic Piano 1 patch, which was the electric piano sound of the 80s! With 7 sound patches.

The expansion is available for £29.99 from the MPC Samples store.
