EKX Electric Grand - Yamaha CP80

The Electric Grand EKX presents a carefully and extremely detailed sampled Yamaha CP-80. This revolutionary instrument made its debut in the late 1970's as a more compact and electrified alternative to a regular acoustic grand piano. It quickly achieved the status of an indispensable classic, whose characteristic sound was immortalized by a wide variety of internationally successful artists on countless hit productions in a wide variety of genres. Though the instrument is no longer in production more than 30 years after its introduction, the CP-80's analog, semi-electrically amplified sound still plays a particularly influential role in modern music production.

Please note : This EZkeys 2 sound library extension is a so-called "Legacy EKX" as it was originally recorded as a former EZkeys 1 sound library. In contrast to the sound library extensions produced exclusively for EZkeys 2, a "Legacy EKX" can be loaded and used both in the previous version EZkeys 1 and in the current version EZkeys 2. Users who still only use EZkeys 1 and do not want to switch to EZkeys 2 can still easily expand their existing EZkeys 1 with "Legacy EKXs".
