The Silk Rhodes

29

Tonebars is a recorded Rhodes MarkI captured with a boutique vintage signal chain. For the main patch, the tonebars was plucked with finger tips rather than played with keys, making a sonorous tender mellow sound.

 

The soundboard was outfitted with per-tonebar piezo pickups to allow for a fuller sound

This is not the standard bell-sounding rhodes piano sound. This one is more wooden sounding, with a clean crisp and warm analogue sound.

The Silk Rhodes is a recorded 1975 Rhodes Mark1 captured with a boutique vintage signal chain.  It was outfitted with per-tonebar piezo pickups to allow for a fuller sound.  Tines were struck and plucked, and therefore sounding different than other sampled rhodes pianos.

THREADS

Imagine sliding your fingers through a curtain of small threads with bells, and try to recreate this on an instrument. This feeling, was something we have tried to implement in the Sculpt FX settings modes. Simple movements leading to complex and unexpected results.

USER INTERFACE

The interface is scalable.  Simple to look at, ready to play, but with advanced options are available behind every control.
