Simply plug a MIDI keyboard in your computer and you're ready to play one of the most famous electronic keyboard ever made: a wonderful Wurlitzer™ model 200A manufactured in 1972.
UVI Instruments are well known and have been deeply used by professional musicians and producers for more than a decade thanks to some unique software like MOTU MachFive™, Ethno™ and BPM™, Spectrasonics Stylus™ and Atmosphere™, UVI Workstation™... to name a few.
UVI Wurli features the best of the UVI technology and the most efficient user interface to play an instrument: launch it and play !
To make this software instrument, we did record a beautiful sounding Wurlitzer™ 200A in ideal conditions, using the best high-end audio devices as well as the best Analog-to-Digital converters. The keyboard was deeply multi-sampled on every key with release samples on every note, to capture the beauty and the soul of the original instrument.
The result is certainly one of the best Wurlitzer you'll hear in a software instrument.
A Wurlitzer piano is usually a 64-note instrument whose keyboard range is from A an octave above the lowest note of a standard 88-note piano to the C an octave below the top note of an 88-note piano. Tone production in all models comprises a single steel reed for each key, activated by a miniature version of a conventional grand piano action and forming part of an electrostatic pickup system using a DC voltage of 170v.
A mechanical sustain pedal similar to that of a conventional piano is fitted. Compared with the classic electric piano, this one has a brighter, more hollow sound. When played gently the sound can be quite sweet and vibraphone-like, becoming more aggressive with harder playing, producing a characteristic slightly overdriven tone usually described as a "bark".
