UVI SoundSource has introduced The Seventh, a new virtual instrument that they describe as "a virtual electric piano from the 21st century."
It's not sounding very Buck Rogers, based on that tagline, but here's what they have to say about The Seventh:
For the first time, the last sequel – Mark 7 – of the all-time famous electric piano brand is now available as a virtual instrument.
While sharing the same electro-mechanical design with its ancestors, this great piano also brings its own soul and character along with sound and music quality.
Thanks to the UVI radical chain of recording gear and sampling techniques, we were able to achieve certainly one of our best electric piano ever : first we took the time to carefully tweak the instruments to obtain the most homogenized playing sensation possible (voicing, tuning …). Then we did record direct from the internal microphone to a custom Universal Audio preamplifier plugged into the Prism Orpheus converters using Vovox uniques cables. We sampled up to 14 velocity levels as well as the release sounds for every note. Everything was captured at 24bit / 96khz for a crystal clear sound quality.
The result is a very unique and expressive electric piano: a 21st century instrument with the soul of the 70s.
Pricing and Availability
The Seventh is available now for Mac & Windows for US $79.
