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. And the sounds were triggered by us plucking, bowing or hitting the tines inside the rhodes.

sound manipulations with xy pad

Imagine sliding your fingers through a curtain of small threads with bells or pearls, and try to recreate this on an instrument. This feeling, was something we wanted to implement in the Sculpt modes [FX] . 

With a physical connection to the tines, a completely different set of sounds appear. The attack and resonation of a fingertip carefully plucking a tine, is very different from the hammers hitting it.
