EZkeys Retro Electrics includes two carefully captured and timeless electric pianos, a Clavinet and a Pianet.

These two instruments are world-famous for their distinct sound and have been perpetuated in numerous hits from the golden ages of funk, soul and British Invasion. Even though production has stopped long ago, the complex and round sound of the Pianet and the bright staccato of the Clavinet keep resonating vividly in all corners of contemporary music production, making these classics every bit as relevant in any songwriter’s toolbox today as they were back when it all started.

  • All sounds are designed to be mix-ready. Just pick a preset and the sound will sit right in your mix!
  • Uncompromising dynamic response for great playability

EFFECT CHAIN PRESETS – OVERVIEW
The included signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud. You can control each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.

RETRO CLAVINET
Clean Funk:
Run through a classic amp model, a 4×12 cabinet combined with a tape simulator and a spring reverb, this setting is still relatively clean and shows the nature of the instrument very nicely.

Classic Wah:
A classic sound for any riff-driven song. This setting includes compression, amp/cab simulation, delay and of course, the unmistakable wah-wah.

Dirty Fuzz:
A quite distorted sound saturated with reverb, various amp/cam simulation and a knob for an optional phaser effect.

Filter Funk:
A round but bright staccato-like sound that brings you right back to the golden age of funk in the ’70s. Wah-wah and tape delay!

Guitar Like:
Just like the name implies, this preset brings out the Clavinet’s string sound in great way. Perfect for rhythmic passages or guitar-like riffs. A true funk sound, at its best!

Modern Ballad:
Tremolo, inverse reverb and a subtle chorus makes this setting the perfect match for a modern soulful ballad.

CA DI:
The factory CA direct in setting.

CB DI:
The factory CB direct in setting.

DA DI:
The factory DA direct in setting.

DB DI:
The factory DB direct in setting.

RETRO PIANET
Clean Amp:
A quite unfiltered signal amplified by a low-gain amp and a classic 4×12 cabinet. A very allround sound that works in anything from a soul ballad to a funk song.

DI:
Direct in signal with optional knobs for tremolo settings.

Dirty Amp
A stomp box and a vintage amp give this preset an extra gritty sound, perfect for leads, staccato-like playing or general riffing.

Dream Vibrato:
A classic amp and a 1×8 speaker simulation together with vibrato and spring reverb produce a distinctly distorted, very vintage and organ-like sound. Works well in anything from a ballad scenario to an uptempo ’70s rock song.

Hi Gain Distortion:
A slightly muffled sound with a roll-off on the highs.

Jazz Bells:
With its obvious tremolo and bright reverb, this setting brings out the bell-like sound in the Pianet. Great for a jazzy ballad!

Phase Fuzz:
With its strong fuzz and phaser saturation, this sound almost elevates in the stereo field. Great for anything from big, open chords to tight funky riffs.

Rotary:
A relatively clean sound that combines a classic cabinet with a delicate room reverb. Allround!

Smooth Funk:
It doesn’t get funkier than this. Wah-wah, classic amp/cab combo, tape delay and moderate compression produces a sound that brings you right back to the ’70s.

Space Ballad:
A tremolo-driven sound perfect for any ambient composition.

THE DETAILS ARE IN THE SOUND.
