SALE: Neo Soul Keys Studio 10 USD!
Author View comments Tags Tags: , , , , ,

Neo-Soul Keys® Studio is a 100% FULL recreation of the desktop version. This version contains every single preset, effect, and functionality as the desktop version, which costs $199.99. In fact, any preset you make on the desktop is 100% compatible to the iOS version. Amazingly enough, we were able to include the full functionality of the popular desktop grade Vintage Keyboard FX Suite, by Overloud™ built into the library.

Description:

Neo-Soul Keys® Studio is the #1 electric piano application for iOS. These are some of the most realistic, organic, and warm sounding electric pianos ever created. We pride ourselves on the intangibles. By intangibles, we mean: grit, dirt, release, bark, mechanics, bumps, clanks, and all of the electromechanical goodness that makes up an electro mechanical piano. Without such great detail, your electric piano can be very sterile, lifeless, and without character. Alternatively, don’t be mistaken–Our EPs can sound as clean and clear as a whistle, but you are always welcome to dial in as much dirt as you want.

When you first play our electric pianos, you will immediately hear a very distinct difference from any other electric piano you’ve played. Terms like warmth, vintage, phat, weighty, and vibey are many of the words often used when describing the sound of Neo-Soul Keys®. When you first play this thing in the studio or live, you will hear your speakers fill the room with a very reminiscent vintage and old school sound of the ’70s. All of this is because we didn’t just sample the DI of our pianos. We used the same vintage and boutique equipment the top studios use, to create the COMPLETE electric piano sound and experience.

See what the late-great George Duke has said about Neo-Soul Keys® and why he chose to use it live, rather than a real electric piano:

“I also incorporated one called [Gospel Musicians] Neo-Soul Suitcase, because that has a little more grit and meat on it for certain types of sounds. There’s another that’s pretty smooth, and it’s also a Scarbee thing but it’s toned down; it doesn’t have a lot of attack. As a matter a fact, I’m using that sound on “Brazilian Love Affair.” When I go into playing more funk, I might use Neo-Soul Keys, which has a lot of attack….” (Keyboard Magazine, Aug. 2013).
