Retro Keys Effects


The library features our advanced effect script that lets you insert any effect chain you want, including:

  • High Quality EQ.
  • Various types of compressors.
  • Modulation: chorus, flanger, phaser.
  • Distortion / Saturation / Tape
  • Algorithmic and convolutional reverb with more than 40 custom impulse responses.
  • Amp simulators.

This script boosts exponentially the sonic capabilities of the library, easy to use in a simple and elegant design.


From the settings page you can control basically any parameter you might ever need. Divided in four sections you can find:

  • Round robin: the original instrument always plays the same sound no matter how many times you play a key. That’s why we didn’t sample any round robin repetitions. But you can still get a round robin effect using the neighbour-borrowing technique.
  • Dynamic range: set how much difference in volume there is between the loudest and the softest velocities.
  • Velocity curve: control how the library reacts to incoming midi notes.
  • Noise: all vintage equipment makes noise. We included it so you can have the real feel of the original instrument.
