Keyscape™ - Collector Keyboards

Quick Overview


Keyscape is not just a virtual instrument. It is the world’s most enviable collection of keyboard instruments—some new, some vintage, all in absolute mint condition! Spectrasonics spent over 10 years acquiring, restoring and deeply sampling each instrument, then their sound design team brought them to life using Spectrasonics’ STEAM engine. The results are a keyboard player’s dream come true. Imagine instant access to 36 instrument models, including acoustic pianos, electric pianos (all the classics!), a wide variety electro-mechanical instruments, experimental and keyboard bass instruments, synth pianos, even high-end toy pianos! Use Keyscape’s simple, intuitive controls to adjust them, layer them, or bring them into Omnisphere to get radically inventive results. If you play keyboards, you need Keyscape! It’s that simple.

KEYSCAPE™ is an extraordinary new virtual instrument featuring the largest selection of collector keyboards in the world. Ten years in the making, each of these rare, sought-after keyboards were carefully restored and then deeply multisampled by the renowned Spectrasonics Sound Development Team. These compelling and highly expressive sounds will inspire you to PLAY!

 

 

The process began with going to the ends of the earth to find and restore each one of these rare and incredibly special instruments with the top technicians and expert craftsmen from each discipline. Spectrasonics even went as far as spending years redoing these instruments from scratch again and again until they were totally “right.”

This incredible attention to detail and meticulous care given to each instrument allowed Spectrasonics to develop these sounds to a whole new level of authentic tone and inspiring playability…and of course that’s just the start of how these instruments can be transformed into amazing new sounds with the STEAM Engine™!

Custom Controls

The Custom Controls presented for each Patch allow you to go far beyond the original sound. The intuitive interface includes useful performance controls and high quality creative effects processing specially crafted for each Patch. Hundreds of included Patches showcase the remarkable versatility and ability to dramatically customize these iconic sounds to your music.

Authentic Expression

With many of these collector instruments, it's really the imperfections that make them so interesting. Instead of cleaning up all the quirks and noises they make, we made sure to closely capture them since they are big part of their vibe. In addition to that, the Spectrasonics software team closely modeled the authentic behavior and mojo of vintage amplifiers, classic effects units and unique subtleties like mechanical noises, pedal noises and release overtones to bring these sounds to a whole new level of authenticity and dynamic expression.

Hybrid "Duo" Sounds

Along with the hundreds of patches based on the 36 instrument models, Keyscape includes special hybrid "Duo" sounds, which combine two of the instruments to create something entirely new. The unique timbre of these Duo patches make them some of the most creative and inspiring sounds in Keyscape!

Omnisphere Integration

Keyscape and Omnisphere

As a bonus for Keyscape users, Keyscape also integrates fully as a satellite instrument within the Omnisphere® interface. Keyscape will simply appear as a library inside Omnisphere’s browser for users of both plug-ins. This allows Keyscape users to harness the full synthesis power of the STEAM Engine® to explore endless new sonic possibilities and combinations!
