Essential Keyboard Collection

At Sonivox we have over a decade of experience of meticulously sampling and expertly voicing instruments. Over the last 12 months we have been working hard to provide the reference collection of “must-have” instruments for keyboard players. 

Our new flagship keyboard instrument utilises the powerful new struQture audio engine from Qubiq Audio, providing full cross DAW compatibility, outstanding sonic quality, visually stunning easy-to-use UI’s and a standalone performance app. 

This dynamic instrument features a wide library of highly playable sounds designed to sound great in live performances or studio use. 

EK has been produced by the sound design veterans behind the highly-acclaimed Air Music Tech Mini Grand, DB-33 and Velvet plugins as well as Sonivox Eighty-Eight. We set out to provide keyboard players with the essential collection for live performance. 

EK includes a selection of thirteen powerful instruments, each with their own intuitive UI built into one powerful player supporting all popular plugin formats. They can also be used as a standalone PC and Mac app when you want to plug in your keyboard and just play. Our comprehensive collection includes the most requested instruments for live performance. Each instrument includes a set of highly playable presets perfect for any musical genre or style. 

The piano - perhaps more than any other single instrument - conveys the whole range of musical thoughts and emotions like nothing else can. EK features stunning Piano models, including a Steinway Grand piano, Yamaha Grand piano, a classic upright piano, Celeste, and even a Toy Piano for times when you need a taste of something different. 

If the electric piano is more your thing, you will absolutely love the Essential Keyboard Collection. Incredibly authentic, both in playability and sound, EK features all the classic models including the Rhodes Mark I and Mark II, Wurlitzer, Clavinet, and a hard to find Pianet. 

There are very few truly unique instrumental sounds in the world of music. Sounds so distinct, so compelling, so immediately identifiable and genuine that you just have to have it. One of these really great, unmistakable instrumental sounds is the tonewheel organ, used by many great rock, soul and jazz artists in the 1960’s to 1980’s. Unforgettable musicians like Stevie Winwood, Jon Lord of Deep Purple, Jimmy Smith and Richard “Groove” Holmes used tonewheel organs to great musical effect. The Essential Keyboard Collection includes 20 tonewheel organ presets designed to cover jazz, rock, pop and other music styles.  

If you’re looking for something more traditional, EK offers a church organ, Celeste, and 4 harpsichord models for classical or worship productions.

Eighty Eight Ensemble

The Arrival of Piano Perfection

Our flagship piano instrument is not just any piano. Eighty Eight Ensemble 2 is an exceptional recreation of the Steinway 9-foot CD 327 grand piano. Meticulously sampled and expertly voiced, Eighty Eight Ensemble 2 provides every composer, pianist, and musician the opportunity to infuse their compositions, recordings, and performances with the breathtaking realism of this truly world-class grand piano. The recording philosophy employed in creating Eighty Eight Ensemble 2 was based on using a simple signal chain, the finest A/D converters, and exceptional microphone preamps. The result is some 1500 sample recordings, with 16 dynamic levels captured and preserved for every key.

Personal Touch

Even with all this painstaking attention to accuracy, Eighty Eight Ensemble 2 provides plenty of opportunities to customize the sound to match the project—or your taste. The four-band EQ allows the timbre of the sound to be easily refined. An improved limiter offers enhanced dynamic control. Even the level of the sustain pedal and hammer release elements that help define the character of the piano can be individually controlled. Eighty Eight Ensemble 2 also adds a new robust reverb section. The high-frequency damping and room size parameters can add just the right ambience to your performance.

Ensemble Extras

As the name implies, there is more to Eighty Eight Ensemble 2 than piano. Combination patches come in two flavors. Layered combinations, or Pads, add a second instrument that sounds along with the piano. These layered sounds include strings, synth pads, and choral pads. Split Combinations, or Combis, introduce a second sound—or even a third—played in a specified range of keys. Setting a lower split adds a bass sound—such as bass guitar—playing below the piano. Setting an upper split adds a solo accompaniment instrument playing above the piano. Solo sounds include flute, clarinet, acoustic guitar, etc. Combis can have both an upper and lower split. The zones, or range of keys where each instrument will play, can abut or overlap as you desire. The velocity response can be set to make the most of your keyboard and playing style.

Turn and Learn

In addition to the onscreen controls, Eighty Eight Ensemble features a brilliant MIDI Learn Mode. Simply adjusting a parameter and then touching an external MIDI control creates a link between the two. This intuitive MIDI mapping system allows Eighty Eight Ensemble to quickly integrate with your favorite MIDI hardware controller. In fact, Eighty Eight Ensemble can save and recall your MIDI Learn presets and use them with any patch, so you only need to create them once.

Finders, Keepers

Eighty Eight Ensemble features an integrated patch browser that makes it easy to store, sort, and find exactly the sound you are looking for. Patch attributes such as Class, Genre, Character—and of course, Name—allow your sounds to be stored in a musically meaningful way, as opposed to just indexed as numbers. Any and all attributes can be removed or re-assigned as your sound collection grows. Best of all, Eighty Eight Ensemble comes with over 100 professionally programmed sounds to get you started. Each one can be endlessly tweaked and modified to rapidly build your customized Eighty Eight Ensemble sound collection. So get started now!
