e-instruments has released Session Keys Electric W – which they describe as an exquisitely sampled electric piano for Kontakt, based on a genre-defining piano legend.
A spokesperson told us, "Session Keys Electric W combines authentic sound, flexible operation, and unique controls to make it feel like you’re playing the real thing, producing sounds you wouldn’t imagine were created electronically."
Here's the details in e-instruments' own words...

Surpassing the original
Session Keys Electric W offers much more than a precise image of the original electric piano sound. Besides 35 inspiring sound presets, tuning options and powerful effects its compelling play assistance and production tools include:
Session Keys Electric W is fully Native Instruments NKS compatible. NKS provides seamless integration with NI’s Komplete Kontrol keyboards and offers visual feedback of parameters, key switches and even notes the Animator is playing.
