What do I need?

- any version of Logic, Kontakt*, or Garageband
- a MIDI controller

*NOTE: The samples work perfectly on any full version of Kontakt, but NOT with the free Kontakt 4/5 “Player”.

Do they work for PC?

Yes, Kontakt works on both Macs and PCs (Pro Tools, Cubase, Ableton Live, etc.)

Will I experience latency?

So far, no one has reported any latency issues. 2GB of RAM should be more than enough.

How are these samples different/better than…?

Most factory samples in software/keyboards are made up of only a few short, heavily-processed files.  We recorded each key at about 6-9 velocities with about 4 layers of key release, resulting in 500-1000 full-length WAV files.  Each file is then exported in it’s raw and unprocessed form, and carefully mapped one at a time in a sampler. We essentially make it a rule to use enough wav files to not have to rely on any “articificial” post-processing (simulating sustain with resonance, simulating velocity with gain reduction, stretching wav files over several keys, etc). 

How much do they cost?

Retro Wurli and Eighty Eight are only $40 a piece, or $75 for both.
