The Vintage 73 EP from MPC-Samples and BBoyTech is our incredibly faithful multisampled reproduction of the iconic and much sought-after Fender Rhodes electric piano, optimized entirely for MPCs and Maschine!
Recorded using Corry’s own beautifully restored 1972 Fender Rhodes Mk1 (73 key suitcase model), we’ve perfectly captured the broad range of velocity-sensitive timbres and tones of this vintage classic by sampling 4 unique velocities for each and every note, providing an instrument recreation like you’ve never before experienced in an MPC.
From the distinctively rich and soulful bell like tones heard when playing softly, all the way up to the more aggressive raw tones at higher velocities, this unique MPC instrument perfectly translates the true sound of a real Rhodes to your pads – check out the demos below, sequenced entirely in the MPC Software:
There’s 292 samples in total all in standard WAV format along with a number of different programs precisely tailored for various samplers and operating systems.
The full chromatic 4-zone velocity switching instrument was made specifically for the MPC Software (.xpm), Maschine (.msnd), MPC4000 (.akp) and MPC5000 (.50k), with 4 completely unique samples on each and every pad providing incredible realism and velocity sensitive tonal variation for each note that you play.
MPC Renaissance, MPC Studio, MPC Element & MPC Touch users also get the instrument in MPC Software Expansion Pack (XPN) format for installation directly into the MPC Software Expansion Browser.
And for times when you’d need a smaller memory footprint we’ve created a number of programs that utilise reduced keygroups and/or less velocity zones, which still retain a very realistic variation in timbre while keeping memory footprint to a minimum (program sizes range from 33MB – 68MB). Perfect for the MPC2500, MPC1000, MPC500 and all versions of JJOS, and also available for lower memory usage in the MPC5000 and MPC4000.
We’ve even created a single velocity layer version for the MPC2000/XL which is still chromatically sampled ensuring each of the 64 notes has it’s own unique timbre while keeping memory usage under 23MB.
Additionally as all samples are provided individually in standard WAV format, you can import the samples into all popular software samplers and DAWs along with the provided AKP files for automatic mapping across a keyboard or controller (where supported).
