What Sampleson Says about Fire
Heavily used by The Doors on live shows, Rhodes Piano Bass is an icon of the rock and funk music. We did a recreation based on Spectral Modeling, offering the real sound and feel of the instrument in just 30MB.
Carefully crafted. Detailed recreation of every single mechanical noise and main timbre. No velocity switching since is not sample-based. Available for Mac & Win, Standalone and Plug-in versions.
I downloaded it and installed it with no problem. It’s a perfect compliment to either Logic’s Vintage Electric Piano, or most other Rhodes based instruments for that matter. It’s all about using the low register for piano bass parts. It’s got a real funky 70’s vibe to it. The preamp and Drive controls add some really nice juicy hair to it. And the Low Partials knob add really nice thick lower overtones to fatten up the bass register. It’s super fun to play, and will inspire left hand Rhodes style bass parts immediately.
