Session Keys Electric W is the sound of some of the most iconic hits over the last few decades. With attention to every detail, the recreation of this classic electric piano offers you all the warmth and dynamic range of the original. The Wurli helped to define the sound characteristics of Fusion, Disco, Funk, and Pop. We searched obsessively for a perfectly suited original to replicate this hit-making electric piano, followed by weeks of further specialist restoration. You’ll get tons of inspiration from the various sounds the electric piano produces at different velocity layers – from Vibraphone-like smoothness to ultra-aggressive, distorted sounds.
Studio & Live
With the Electric W we invite you to play and feel not only the original, versatile, and assertive sound of a 200A but also two different sample sets, recorded with and without the original speaker.
“Studio” delivers the direct unaltered line-out sound, while “Live” captures the sound of the speakers through a comprehensive microphone set-up covering the original speakers including cone-cry and break-up for a most realistic feel.
Both sample sets feature additional recordings of acoustic noise- and resonance elements to expand your sonic possibilities even further.
Instant sound design
Electric W offers almost boundless sound design options. The Pentamorph enables an unprecedented instant control over the fundamental sound of the Electric W.
Move the pentagonal controller to morph from the genuine Wurli sound to various different complex sound textures. The Pentamorph provides atmospheric textures as well as extraordinary percussive sounds with minimal effort.
Manipulate the sound with individual controls for sustain resonance, reeds volume, pedal noise, key noises, release, and reverse samples volume.
Experiment with classic electric piano effects such as Tremolo, Chorus, Amp Simulation, Delay and Reverb.
