For many days, people hyped in the social media channels and forums over the world, the upcoming new release from Spectrasonics Software developer. This comes from the fact that many people are very happy Omnisphere 2 user which offers such a brillant sound quality not see in another plugin. This hype is coming because the company doesn’t tell us what kind of product is coming and they tell us that this product is since 10 days in the making. Some users estimated an hardware controller or the next best sampler plugin – Kontakt 5 Killer.
The revelation was yesterday evening in Los Angeles and they introduced a new plugin based on an extensive sampling of old Keyboards. Wait, so much hype for another Keyboard Library. For me personal, it was a disappointment because we know all what Spectrasonics can develop. Omnisphere 2 and Trillian are wonderful examples of brillant developed plugins. I’m pretty sure many keyboard player will love this plugin because they want the best authentic sound under their midi controller. For me, the release is nothing negative but a disappointment to see another Keyboard Library since we have hundreds of different sample libraries from well known companies. (Native Instruments …) I’m pretty sure the sound quality is brillant but I don’t have a relationship to this kind of products. Sorry Spectrasonics…

We even went as far as spending years redoing these instruments from scratch again and again until they were totally “right.”
