KeyTone is a dual voice keyboard sounds ROMpler. Our starting point here was that the world doesn’t need another multi-gig multi-sampled grand piano ROMpler, nor does it need more Rhodes or Whirlitzer instruments. Those bases are pretty much covered. Instead we wanted to make a quick and easy-to-use ROMpler that would let you define your own unique piano/keys sounds.
There are the over 200 instruments sampled and included in KeyTone these were meticulously recorded, edited and mastered using our analogue valve based system, including passing each sound through our dedicated 1970’s Akai valve pre-amp and then copying everything through our Revox B77 tape machine loaded with vintage (but pristine) British Zonal 675 tape. It’s a long, slow process but we think the resulting sounds are worth it.
Setting up and using new sounds in KeyTone couldn’t be simpler – we’ve spent a long time refining our Voice Randomisation engine to the point where new and interesting sounds are just one click (of the Voice Randomising button) away.
We’ve added the all-new Overview tab so getting to the most important controls is quick and easy, but we’ve kept all the detailed control in KeyTone, with “classic” synthesis controls, like envelopes and filters, for sculpting and shaping modern innovative and original sounds quickly and efficiently. You can find these in the Detail tab. On top of these controls we’ve provided over 200 snapshots of full-instrument sounds, as well as over 100 voice-presets, 30 gate presets, and 50 ARP presets.
Also included are our innovative ARP/seq page and multi-mode gate system, as well as the usual 4-slot send effects and 4-slots per voice in-line effects.
