That soul

This piano has a tone and feeling that I’ve not heard in that many places the editing features really makes it stand above the rest it has resonance that goes well with soul, jazz and even rnb

Just WoW

J'ai déjà joué un vrai Rhodes mkI et je dois dire que comparer avec un plugin + touché et sensation d'un clavier maitre n'a aucun sens. C'est deux expériences différentes, donc laissons les différences là où elles sont et sachons apprécier ce que nous avons sous les doigts.
Par contre j'ai joué pas mal de simulation convaincantes de Rhodes chez Nord notamment, chez A...ria et d'autres. UAD réussi ici un sacré tour de force : c'est pas juste un instrument virtuel d'un Rhodes : c'est un Rhodes + un studio virtuel embarqué aux possibilités infinies !!
Dans ce studio vous allez retrouver plusieurs manière de sortir le son du Rhodes (comme sur un orginal) en Di, cab stereo avec repique micros, ampli lampe Fender, cabine Leslie etc.
Tout est réalisé avec les simulations, et le savoir faire d'UAD depuis des années !
Et je ne parle même pas des effets embarqués au format pédalier virtuels, dont certains sont vendu par UAD en plugin séparé (Chorus, Tape delay etc) ou même en hardware au format pédale. Et pour finir on a un rack virtuel de traitement pour caler le son au petit oignons: EQ / Comp 1176 / Modulations / Delay / Reverb.
La somme de ce plugin en studio vaut des dizaines de milliers d'euros...
Alors oui, le son de base en Di du Rhodes avec zéro traitement est assez neutre, mais on peut le personnaliser à souhait si on s'implique un minimum dans la confection de preset. Quand je vois ce que propose la concurrence, à mes yeux et mes oreilles il n'y a plus de débat possible. Merci UAD !

Compared the D.I. signal against the real thing and the difference was pretty much not audible. The added effects offer a great range of tweakability. Probably the best emulation of a Fender Rhodes ever made. Great job UAD!

The first Rhodes plug-in that is near the real electric 88. Impressed

This is now my go-to Rhodes and I don't see using anything else any time soon.

Just incredible. I guess if I took a long enough time I could come up with something to use a negative bullet point, but it's not worth it. If you are looking for any suitcase keyboard-type sound, you should try this one first because if you can't get the sound you are looking for with this, something must be wrong.

Just the best Rhodes

At my opinion, just the best emulation ever. Also it's so versatile with the different amps, pedals and studio gear included. Easy to use and... the best thing is the sound !!!

This machine is an absolute bomb compared to the Arturia I'm using actually
It's , difficult to transcribe the emotion felt under the fingers and between the ears.
tested under Reaper in my dedicated home studio, on PC win Akai MPK 88 -apollo twin->soundId-->Focal alpha 80
the presets are extremely well chosen to feel immediately the palette of the machine.
there is a sublime dynamic which allows the smoothness and the big to very big sound under the pressure of the fingers, and there we feel all powerful
The richness in the details is fabulous

If the playability had equaled the sounds I’d give it five stars, and buy it.
Despite the deal UAD are offering right now on this instrument I’ll be saving my money.
Very abrupt step between medium and full velocities makes it a twitchy ride. Hard to predict which notes of the chord will voice mellow and which will bark.
The sounds, amps and outboard work well but if you’ve ever played a Rhodes, you’ll be very puzzled indeed.

The first emulation that, to my understanding, really transports all the feels of the original. Congratulations UA
