The MKSensation Xtreme is a continuation of our famous MKSensation plugin library. At it’s core it represents the highest quality and the most accurate sampled representation of the classic MKS-20 piano module. You see, coming from a gospel musicians background this MKS sound is a staple of the gospel sound and has been featured in some of the top gospel albums throughout the years. For years you would see gospel musician’s rack filled with the MKS-20 module and a ton of other vintage racks such as the JV-Series, Motifs, and other auxiliary brass, strings, and bell sounds. This would create a complex and massive MIDI setup of the thickest stacked sounds imaginable with the ability to control the levels of each on the fly for a very fluid and dynamic concert experience with minimal sound switching, because the layers can be easily controlled with one or two controllers. So what we did was recreate this entire experience in one plugin to replace decades of modules.
Bonus P-330 Sounds
A little known secret is that many gospel musicians who thought they were listening to a record containing the classic MKS Piano 1 sound, were actually hearing the P-330 piano sounds. For the most part, the MKS’s sounds are more richer and thicker than the P330, with an odd exception of the Piano 1 sound. The P330 Piano sounds cut through the mix a lot better than the MKS and to our ears, was a tad bit thicker and vintage sounding. So as an added bonus, not only do we include two different versions of the MKS sounds sampled using different Mic Pres for different flavors, we have also included an amazingly accurate version of the P330 Piano 1 and Piano 2 sounds as well.
The presets we created are unapologetically gospel and urban in nature—representing all of the classic stacks of a gospel, R&B, Hip-Hop, and live band arrangement sounds one could ever need. We have created the most incredible stacks with a ton of mod wheel filter cutoff with pads and strings. We have also not forgotten about the Tine lovers, so we created a ton of layered EPs that would never be possible without a ton of hardware racks. For example, try mixing a JD Crystal EP, an MKS-EP 2 Chorus, an FM TX816 with a warm pad. You would need a ton of hardware to do this, but our MKSensation has all of the emulations of the hardware in one plugin.
