The 80s EPs are virtual versions of 4 iconic 80s EP sounds from the Yamaha DX7 Mark II, each counting two times 1144 24bit/48kHz samples for the Pro versions. 88 keys sampled in 12 velocity layers. There are three more of them: 80s EP Bright, FM and Warm. The FM 140 is a free product.
No software emulation beats the expressiveness and bite of the real thing. I played around two thousand EP presets and customized 32 of my favourites on my TX802/DX7II and then sampled 4 like all the virtual Wurlitzers and Rhodes out there: extremely detailed and programmed to behave exactly like the original.
“Classic” is a customized Rhodes preset from the DX1. The DX1 goes for around ten thousand dollar on the second hand market and its factory library is far superior to the DX7.
Requires the full version of Kontakt 3.5 or higher. The 80s EPs will only work for 30 minutes in the free Kontakt Player.
