EIGHTY EIGHT is a sample of a 1970’s Fender Rhodes.
It contains 783 individual, full-length WAV files, carefully mapped into 8 layers of velocity and 4 layers of aftertouch. As always with Redtape Samples, there is no artificial, post-processing…just the raw WAV files. Each download contains all the files necessary for both EXS24 and Kontakt.
“This Rhodes is fabulous! Kudos to RedTape Samples for the hard work and dedication to make such an amazing VST at an amazing price. I have several other Rhodes plug-ins and this by far is my favorite. I love the grit and dirt that you guys got out of your sampled Rhodes. Some plug-ins have either too much bell-tone or too much low end but this one is great! Thanks again!” Dre King (Raheem Devaughn, Wale, Kindred the Family Soul, Sy Smith)
“My first gigs as a jazz pianist were on a Fender Rhodes. I’ve always loved the sound ever since I heard Herbie Hancock’s albums from the 70’s. Since getting rid of my Rhodes in the early 90’s, I’ve tried many other samples and software instruments in search of a reasonable substitute . Luckily, I stumbled onto the Redtape samples site. They really captured the sound of the Rhodes. It’s the closest I’ve heard yet. The Wurlie is really fantastic as well. And the price made it the perfect Christmas gift to myself!” George Colligan (Jack DeJohnette, Cassandra Wilson, Christian McBride, Juliard Faculty Member)
“This feels (and sounds) like you’re playing your very own Rhodes, not a pristine ‘recording’ of one. The Wurli is the best plug-in version I’ve played, and I own the real thing. Pure, and deep in detail, both go extremely well with amp simulation and effect plug-ins. Well done Redtape! These are very satisfying samples that will keep my ears engaged.”Christopher Guardino
