Lounge Lizard EP-4 is the recreation of classic electric pianos and delivers the authentic tone of the originals, while also preserving their action and feel. Once again, AAS raises the bar in the recreation of the classic electric pianos. Once you get your hands on Lounge Lizard, that elusive electric piano sound becomes a vivid reality. Using AAS's award winning physical modeling technology, they've come up with refinements that take one of the most impressive and unanimously acclaimed software to another level.
Custom tone. Famous players all had their own signature sound. This was achieved by tedious manual adjustments of forks, hammers and pickups. Whether you are looking to emulate a particular sound or simply find your own, you have direct access to all piano components.
Hammer. Control the attack with the hammer. Adjust the force of the impact, the stiffness of the hammer and the noise it makes. Modulate these across the whole keyboard range or depending on the MIDI velocity.
Fork. A sweet sound is produced when the hammer hits the fork. Control the tone and its envelope by selecting material and natural decay of the tone and tine bars forming the fork.
Pickup. Like in an electric guitar, a pickup near the fork captures its vibration. Adjust the pickup position and control distortion. Get a warm smooth tone or make your piano growl or bark.
Damper. Control how dampers are raised from or applied on the fork and make the attack and release of a note clean or noisy.
Tremolo. Adjust the tremolo to perfection. Use a triangle shape for a smooth effect or a soft square wave to obtain a chopped effect typical of suitcase pianos.
EP Character and Beyond. The original electric pianos provided timbre and volume adjustments by letting you position the tines in relation to the pickups. These adjustments were at the heart of the electric piano's character as they controlled the harmonic content, attack, and decay of the sound, offering unique tone to each player. But there was a price for this flexibility. Several painstaking hours with a screwdriver and incredible patience was needed to change the sound of an electric piano.
Suffer no more! With Lounge Lizard, the preset library provides a selection of thoroughly chosen Tine/Pickup configurations. You also have the ability to make those adjustments in real time via two simple controls: Distance and Symmetry.
