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).

Neo-Soul-Keys iPad

What’s New in Version 1.2
This version has a number of important new features as well as some small bug fixes:

New Features:

– Audiobus support
– MIDI channels filter for each synth
– Virtual MIDI support
– Latency can be adjusted for each synth
– Option to enable or disable background audio
– The samples for the stage synth have been improved
– Improved realism of release decay
– In-App purchases can now be made without leaving the synth
– Option to disable mechanical effects to reduce CPU load
– New mechanical release equation to decay over time like a real electromechanical EP does.
– New Barks in phase with Sustain to eliminate phasing.

Bug Fixes:

– The app now plays when the iPad is locked
– The app doesn’t lose become muted when another audio app is open
– Interruptions handled more robustly
– MIDI dump contains more information for troubleshooting
– The effects algorithms are more efficient and takes up less CPU.
– Fixed bugs with MIDI Learn and made it more effecient
– When activating preset, the window now closes automatically.

With the incredible success of our computer based versions of Neo-Soul Keys®, we felt it an obvious decision to bring our incredible electric piano libraries to the iOS. Despite the eagerness, we did not want to produce a sub-par app just for sake of making an electric piano library, so we worked directly with Apple’s engineers to bring to you, for the first time ever: SAMPLE STREAMING USING APPLE LOSSLESS CAF FORMAT. No other app that we know of offers real-time zone switching sample streaming with lossless compression. Many other sample library apps offer the samples to be loaded into memory, which obviously severely cripples the detail and amount of samples you are able to use. With sample streaming, we are able to use the same high quality sampling techniques, zone switching, and velocity layering, without sacrificing the quality similar to a desktop sample library. So what we did was load all of the electric piano effects samples in system memory, and dedicated the most important sustain samples to stream from the internal flash RAM. The results make for a high quality, low latency, and professional grade electric piano sound module that you can take with you and play live!

You see, many sound designers are trained in a certain way of sampling, by making things so tidy and neat. Every sample is perfectly cut, trimmed, and cross-faded to perfection. Unfortunately, this is not real life and it definitely is not what a real electromechanical instrument is suppose to sound like. It is in those uneven notes, blanks, quarks, splats, clanks, and mechanical nuances that really make you fell like you are playing a real living and breathing organic instrument. This is what we intended with Neo-Soul Keys® – a real world feeling and experience of playing a real electromechanical instrument. You even hear the pedal noises when the sustain pedal is being pressed and released. THAT IS HOW MUCH DETAIL WE PUT INTO OUR INSTRUMENTS! As a result, our Neo-Soul Keys® has been featured and licensed by none other than Steinberg®, who are the the inventors and creators of VST technology.

Will work for the iPad 2, 3 and Mini, but polyphony and CPU may be limited. The iPad 4 and higher are recommended.

Neo-Soul Keys is available for free
