FM Electric Piano Collection For Kontakt

Karanyi's Vapor Keys features Yamaha DX7, TX81z & Arturia Micro Freak      21/06/19

Karanyi has released a new Kontakt electric piano collection. Vapor Keys is described as a collection of great sounding FM Electric Piano sample library + an inspiring collection of dreamlike keyboard instruments for Kontakt. A spokesperson told us, "It can sound sweet and naive, bright, bold, harsh, trashy, lush and sexy, spacy or even dark and gloomy."  Here's more details in Karanyi's own words...

Vapor Keys includes 3 deep-sampled classic and modern FM, algorithmic and wavetable synth sources in 1 pack. It is a collection of custom Electric Pianos mixed with various FM, Wavetable and Algorithmic synthesizer sounds and designed to create gorgeous and bold modern neo-90s sounds. The collection is inspired by classic movies and artists like Luxury Elite, Macintosh Plus or Hong Kong Express. The collection is divided into two parts: Electric Pianos and Vapor Keys:

Electric Pianos are dry, multi velocity sampled instruments with classic EP presets from vintage FM gear with 2 effects / patch: a detuned chorus and a phaser.
With this selection you get access to great authentic FM Electric Pianos from the 80s and 90s. All samples are recorded key-to-key in 24 bit 48kHz. We captured these sounds with analog gear and by applying the minimum software post-production process to keep these patches rich and fresh.

  • Multi-layer sampled Electric Piano patches with keybed noises for additonal reality and playability
  • Custom Yamaha DX7
  • 9 Electric Piano patches
  • Full scales
  • Neve 1073 Preamp + Roland Dimension D + Studer A800 used for recording path
  • 3-4 dynamic layers / patch


Vapor Keys are heavily sound-designed keyboard instruments with dry and wet signals mixed together from various FM pianos, other synth sources and reverb gears. These patches are great for chords, arps and shorter soundscapes. We captured authentic, classic instruments algorithmic and fm (Yamaha DX7 and TX81z) and modern wavetable (Arturia MicroFreak) synthesizers along with various Eventide reverb units and tape machines to create these extraordinary presets.

  • Combinations of various electric piano and wavetable synth patches with additional spaces
