Electric Grand EKX comes with a carefully sampled Yamaha CP-80*. This groundbreaking instrument was first introduced on the market in the late 1970s as a compact, electric option to the regular grand piano and has since become a modern classic, immortalized in chart-topping songs by a wide range of artists spanning across the genres.
Even today, some 30 years after its inception and since long out of production, the analog, electric and amplified hybrid sound of the CP-80 keeps playing a key role in modern music. With the included broad genre mixer presets, the classic, crisp sound will expand beyond the conventions and make this instrument a must in every versatile songwriter’s palette of audio tools.
This is an expansion that works with both EZkeys 1 and EZkeys 2. Note: This product only comes with a sound library – no MIDI or software is included. See full system requirements at the bottom of this page.
The included signal chain presets are based on high quality effects from Overloud. You can control each preset by using a set of controls that will affect the individual parameters.
The default and all-round sound brings out the best in the natural CP-80.
A true bypass preset that represents what the instrument sounds like raw, without effects and EQ.
A big sound for any ambient ballad. This sound involves EQ, compression, stereo enhancer, reverb, delay and more.
The direct signal run through an amp and a 15″ cabinet combined with compression, spring reverb and tremolo. A well-rounded sound with a slight edge, great for anything from classic ballads to modern pop and rock.
Reverb and chorus on top of the classic CP-80 produces a dense sound with subtle overtones. Tailored for ballads or mid tempo rock with an edge.
Bit crusher, filter, phaser, delay and plate reverb – all boiled down to a preset that takes this instrument to a completely new level. Suitable for anything from modern pop to classic funk or rock.
A bright, in-your-face sound that won’t go unnoticed in any mix. Chorus, hall reverb, tape delay, compression – this is a creative preset with an unmistakable modern edge but still timeless and applicable in any song context.
Slightly less bright and with a more vintage feel, this combo of vibrato, filter and filter delay will surely find its way to many funky ballads and songs with a retro feel.
Tape simulation, compression, phaser and plate reverb – a playful sound with a distinct distorted edge and phaser effect.
