A worthwhile addition!

This instrument has the vibe. Other offerings I've tried were a bit limited. Electra 88 seems to fill in where others have been lacking I've found this to be a wonderful addition to instrument library.

A ver good sounding plug in

I have an original Rhodes mk1 here - the plug in needs more eq in the lows, but its a fantastic well coded plugin. Thx 4 the hard work.

Want to be better than the others

Pretty typical to the Rhodes sounding piano it needs more presets.

Just Wooow!

I make guitar pop and this library is such a wonderful addition to my sound pallet. The warmth and sweetness of this emulation is off the scale. And don't get me even started on the realistic sound and spatial depth! I was working on a song that needed some electric keys for days before I demoed the Electra 88. The third preset I loaded was a direct hit. Completely what the song needed and then some! If I were to own a real Electra 88, I don't think I would be able to make it sound this good. Just blown away

Amazing warmth, what a sound

I had my eyes on it for a while. Now I had the chance to buy it for €28 during a sale. I love it, especially for that price!

Update. I did give 2 or 3 stars before but I refuse. Customer service here sucks.

UAD has made so much money off of us, they feel obviously they don't have to communicate with the customers. I called the support number and it directed me to got to a support website. where the still don't interact with the customer. I love your products but if you all are too busy or to BIG I'd say to speak with the customer then this will be my last purchase ever. I never had this problem with Waves Audio, and they even reached back out to me. Now I've purchased the Electra 88 and the download keeps pausing at 15%. I was frustrated now I'm upset after calling and them telling me to go to a website and call will automatically disconnect, Like Really, you don't want to talk to your customers. I'm sure they reach out to the Big Time producers or whatever. I regret purchasing anything from you all. Really!

SMH

I have never had problems with any other UAD plugin. But this. I listened to the Electra 88 in the video on your website and it sounded so natural, I had to make the purchase. Not sure what's going on but, I've been trying to download it since last night and it's still not downloaded. What is the problem??? This makes no since. I've started the download over several times. and it doesn't go past 15% download smh I'm frustrated and disappointed.

Absolutely amazing

The warmth and authenticity of the sound, all the built-in effects, and the sleek user interface make the Electra 88 an absolute joy to use.

Excellent Rhodes Instrument

There are obviously many elec piano plug ins but the weakness is often the top end. The UAD version really gets that right. It bites and rings like a real Rhodes. It’s also a huge time saver that all the extras you would use with a Rhodes, like pedals and rack effects are built in and ready to go. Overall the sound, interface, and ease of use are excellent. Another banger from UAD.

Great

Great sound, good interface and many possibilities (pedal/compr/dist...).
Warning : Cpu usage on Mac intel ! Demoing before.

Doesn’t even work

Don’t buy this it doesn’t even show up and when you email UA they don’t respond.

Road to Rhodes heaven...

Great design throughout - visually striking, extremely intuitive and fast workflow. All the top gear in the room with you, including mikes, leslie, stomp boxes, and studio rack effects. Incredible value. I love that you can set the general sensitivity curve so you can match all patches easily to the sensitivity of the particular keyboard you are using. My favourite rhodes plugin by far!

Excellent Sound

This plugin has the almost same as 1974 Fender Rhodes sound what I once had.
