Acousticsamples are offering a deal on V Tines for a limited time, now only €69.00, (usually €99.00). There are other Acousticsamples deals too including a buy 2 products, get an extra 5% off and buy 3+ products, get an extra 10% off deals.
Acousticsamples have always thought that the future of virtual instruments would be the sound quality of sampling, but with the playability of modeling. Achieving both with only samples requires too many of them, and with only modeling requires too much CPU.
Acousticsamples found a way to combine both technologies by using samples as the sound source, and the playability and everything else drawing from modeling techniques. This allows the V Tines to weigh only 80Mb (retina graphics and presets included), whilst still sounding like a Fender Rhodes©, with all of its imperfections. It has a fully continuous response (if you’re not convinced this is possible, listen to the 127-velocity example in our video) as well as a highly customizable sound.
Their model is based on real samples of a 1978 Fender Rhodes© Mark1 fully restored with clean pickups and tines, new grommets, new hammer tips, etc, so it is the best an electric piano can sound. Our model gives you access to a 100% continuous response, a very small sized library (80Mb) and a very high tweakability.
It also ensures that the staccatos and releases that make up for half of the realism sound perfect, not like a fadeout, not too loud, just perfect.
Acousticsamples carefully measured the output of the preamp of a Rhodes© suitcase and created an exact replica of the stereo panning of the Vibrato. We just added the possibility to sync it to your tempo and also extended the speed range just like some real mods do.
The Bass and treble EQ are precisely adjusted to the frequencies and ranges of the original preamp.
Pre 1969 Rhodes© only had a mono tremolo, so we added that option and you can get that old school vibrato effect.
Rhodes© are often recorded through the direct output, but the suitcase models have a stereo amp that has a very recognizable sound with two 12′ speakers facing the front and two facing the back and each side.
Acousticsamples captured different microphone positions and distances to cover most of the real life recording placements.
Our AMP simulation is true stereo, meaning that they have a very precise stereo image which is extremely useful when the Vibrato is on.
Rhodes© pianos are often used with FX, so we created an FX panel with the most common ones, each of them is one of the very efficient and high quality FXs made by UVI. Each FX can be tweaked in real time.
Modeling also means customization, you can alter the sound of the V Tines like you would on a real electric piano and in a very easy way.
A real electric piano can be customized with a screwdriver, you basically adjust the angle and distance between the tine and the pickup. It’s exactly the same on the V Tines, you just don’t need the screwdriver.
You can adjust many different parameters for each note, for all notes or using a mapper for each parameter.
Acousticsamples’ MIDI mapper allows to adjust the response of the V Tines velocity by velocity if necessary, and we created a tool that does it automatically by analysing what you play.
Just repeat a few linear velocity repetitions and it will be all set and ready to play.
