one of the best emulations on the market

I owned a Mark II (I'm still tearing my hair out for selling it), I own countless virtual versions of the most famous software houses, I own countless hardware emulations (Roland, Yamaha, Nord Stage, Kurzweil) so I know very well what I'm talking about and I can affirm in all honesty that this is one of the best virtual emulations on the market and worth all the money spent.
Especially the effect sound presets are absolutely fantastic.

Like all virtual emulations, however, it's necessary to use an excellent keybed and choose the one that best suits the touch response

Is it good?

I bought this on the back of seeing how it stacks up to other 3rd party electric pianos which I own and love and I have to say, true to form, UA really do a faithful job here. The sound is really nice and warm, the tone shaping that you can do by yourself is really vast and there are a load of great user presets also that can accomodate any style you're playing to or you can tweak them to best suit your needs. I really love the plugin and I’m super happy I went in for it, it will be used on everything I do that needs Rhodes which is most of my work.

This sounds great!

I have a few Rhode style plugins and this one is at the top as far as the sound goes. There are a couple of things that need to be worked out as far as playability and function, maybe it needs more voices so it doesn't cut off notes but overall a really good sound.

Electric Piano for Dreamy Flow

An electric piano with a dreamy flow. I've been looking for this electric piano for a long time, a version with such a dreamlike flow, finally there is this piano. I love it so much because I can finally do what I want with it. It puts me in a realm where I can access effects instantly and tweak the sound I need.

Solid Electric Piano

I don't usually write product reviews but in this case, I've made an exception because it's so good!
I use Electric Pianos a lot in my music and as such, have tried a few different plug ins: I own the Electric 88 by Waves, two Scarbee Electric Pianos by Native Instruments and now the Electra by UA. They all have different sounds and characters and therefore can serve different purposes... But I would say that this UA instrument is the most versatile.

If you're trying to decide on which Electric Piano plug in to get and can only afford one, then I whole heartedly recommend UA Electra over all others. Yes, it is more expensive but you totally get what you pay for in terms of sound quality and as I said before, versatility. It is the most customisable EP out there without a doubt, thanks to it's EQ, compression and effect capabilities( among others). You can use it to achieve any type of EP sound, basically.

My only negative is that sometimes, after a long period of time, the sounds will start to freak out - like stutter, and notes get jumbled up. I've found simply turning the plug in off and on resolves this, so it's no big deal. It's worth noting that this problem could be on my end anyway....
Also, the plug in is a VST3 so it's more resource hungry but if you have a good rig then you should manage just fine.
Bottom line, awesome product. UA are the best - my go to! Thanks UA :)

Quite the best

I've severals rhodes vst and i think that Uad version is the second best choice after the Rhode vst version of their hardware.

I've found a lost of dinamics opinion.
Otherwhise....good plugin!

Superb Rhodes Piano sounds!

Can't say enough great things about this plug. Warm, lush Rhodes sounds to harsh and dirty and everything in between. And the effects, wow! Great job, UA!

The Real Deal

This is the best-sounding electric piano virtual instrument I have used. It is also versatile and customizable. Thanks, UA.

I love it!

Some user claimed it loads slow, but must be his PC because it loads fine and dandy on my iMac with 64gb ram.
I love that it has many settings to tweak the sounds and the pedals lots of classic ones.. loving that echo plex pedal. I have an original one.
People need to understand that this in the V8 from Rhodes are two different plugins. one imitates the newer Rhodes and one the classic one.

Slow Loader

Rhodes sounds good but VERY slow loading and sometimes won't load at all. When I reopen a session I have to reload the plugin otherwise it doesn't load samples and no audio plays. UAD needs to work out the bugs and provide an update ASAP.

Like a glove!

I mean, it cuts through the mix without a lot of work. I love the effect options. Best emulation out there if you ask me. Definitely worth it!!!
