Neo-Soul Keys® Studio VST/AU/AAX/Standalone

Neo-Soul Keys® Studio are some of the most realistic, organic, and warm sounding electric pianos ever created. We pride ourselves on the intangibles. By intangibles, we mean: grit, dirt, release, bark, mechanics, bumps, clanks, and all of the electromechanical goodness that makes up an electric piano. Without such great detail, your electric piano can be very sterile, lifeless, and without character. Alternatively, don't be mistaken--Our EPs can sound as clean and clear as a whistle, but you are always welcome to dial in as much dirt as you want. See what the late-great George Duke has said about Neo-Soul Keys® and why he chose to use it live, rather than a real electric piano:

"I also incorporated one called [Gospel Musicians] Neo-Soul Suitcase, because that has a little more grit and meat on it for certain types of sounds. There’s another that’s pretty smooth, and it’s also a Scarbee thing but it’s toned down; it doesn’t have a lot of attack. As a matter a fact, I’m using that sound on “Brazilian Love Affair.” When I go into playing more funk, I might use Neo-Soul Keys, which has a lot of attack....” (Keyboard Magazine, Aug. 2013)"

As you can see from the legendary George Duke, he chose Neo-Soul Keys® because of the attack, meat, and grit. This is why we even set out to make an electric piano from the onset. We were not satisfied with the exiting offerings due their lack of grit and dirt. We always wondered why many of the EP sounds didn't sound like the real thing and we realized many developers removed the dirt in favor of a more clean sound. Clean is great! Our EPs can start off clean, but we allow you to add as much dirt, and grittiness as you like. This is what Neo-Soul Keys prides itself on. You have the sculpt-ability to make your sound anything you wish. You won't find another library that has so many sculpting possibilities and it doesn't come at the expense of the CPU. In fact, on an i7 processor, you can turn on every sound and FX and still run at 64 buffer.
