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.

The Best!

The best sounding electric piano I`ve tried, ever!

Amazing!

I love the amp options. Great for live. Bough it and went straight into my live rig.

Something with the velocity curve, hard attack in logic pro low latency mode.

I really like the sound, features and effects!!! Of this plugin. A little bit restricted to one basic sound (model) in my opinion, as compared to Keyscape’s different models.
But one thing that really bothers me is that in use with NI Komplete Komtrol S61mkii and logic pro in low latency mode, I get an uneven attack response which results in nearly uncontrollable produced hard attacks of the sound, there is no even velocity balance curve there. And since I can play it only in Low latency mode, it is quite unusable. Universal Audio really needs to fix this ! ! !

Amazing!

I have the analog version, it's done very similar

The real thing

It sounds very authentic and it is a big pluss with the pedals and the outboard studiogear. Great

The only rhodes you ever need

I have every rhodes plugin on the planet and some of them sounds really good. The problem is that each production require a specific sound and i have to go through every plugin. With uad i have so many options soundwise within one plugin wich saves me so much time. And i can play it with zero latency.

The best rhodes/elec piano VST out there

Dont waste your time looking for alternatives, this is honestly an incredible VST. With so many tools to customise your sound, and with loads of genuinely fantastic pre-sets this is probably up there for one of the best VSTs i have bought

Creative, innovative , versatile, overall awesome sauce

I own piano vst’s from all of the major companies but this is special and different from the rest. I get inspired just by the sounds, presets and the GUI is Genius. Would love to see a bass guitar & electric guitar vst with the same features

Memories of my original ...!!

Smooth, warm, crunchy, bitey and funky too! The Electra 88 is everything it's advertised to be and in fact it's even better than my original back in the day whereas I didn't have all the extras this plugin instrument comes with to shape the sound in every direction. Brings me back to memories of when I had my original hardware version of this keyboard !!

Excellent

This plugin makes it easy to get a good sound quickly, and get on with it. There's good nuance under the hood, but the presets are nice and get you going quick. I have another Rhodes plugin with as much or more tweakability, but I found this one gave me something I bonded with quicker.

Terrible Instruments !!!

That's soooooo worse to CPU. I'm M1 max, it could use 30% cpu when I use it only.
