Description

 

XLN Audio Addictive Keys: Electric Grand features a meticulously sampled Yamaha CP-80, an electro-acoustic instrument that was produced from the late 1970s through the mid 1980s. 

Electric grand pianos have hammers and strings just like acoustic pianos. However, unlike acoustic pianos, these pianos have pickups under the strings that feed the sound to an amplifier—just like an electric guitar or bass. This combination of acoustic, electric, and amplified sources lets you craft unique piano-like textures that that are more harmonically complex and interesting than a typical acoustic piano. 

The Addictive Keys engine plays back the instrument with incredible detail and the advanced studio effects accurately model the tremolo and tone controls of the original instrument. In addition, the Addictive Keys engine lets you push the sonic boundaries beyond what the original instrument could accomplish.

XLN recorded the original CP-80 in a way to maximize options for our outstanding team of sound designers. They recorded the direct output cleanly as well as through a well-maintained vintage Roland Dimension-D hardware chorus. The CP-80 was played through a Music Man 112 RD tube combo amp with three close microphones and one stereo ambience microphone set further back to capture the room's sound. Finally, although rarely heard on albums, they loved the acoustic sound of the CP-80's strings and recorded it in stereo. 

These seven different recording setups gave our sound designers the ability to craft all kinds of amazing presets. You too can easily create inspiring presets that are uniquely yours.

 

Hosted Mode:

Addictive Keys works as a virtual instrument running inside your host music software. It supports all of the major plug-in formats: VST & AU (32 and 64-bit), RTAS (32 bit) and AAX (64 bit). 

This means you can use Addictive Drums within most music applications including: Pro Tools, SONAR, Cubase, Logic, Live and many others.

 

Standalone Mode:

Addictive Keys can also work as a standalone instrument, without requiring host music software. This makes it easy to load an instrument, find an inspiring preset and start playing without having to launch your music software. 

This is perfect when you just want to play without waiting for music software or deal with routing.
