对于北好莱坞的利兹乐器租赁公司来说，这只是一种通过在电子钢琴的琴盒上刻写字母来对乐器进行分类的简单方法。他们的其中一架电子钢琴特别受到生产者和演奏会演奏者的注意，其中一架标有字母“ E”的钢琴。不久之后，“ E”就成为70年代和80年代洛杉矶录音室中最抢手的电子钢琴之一，并出现在无数热门歌曲和专辑中。到了必须提前几个月预定“ E”来跟踪日期的地步。
决心分享其美丽，原始的音色，“ E”电钢琴的拥有者乔治·玛玛拉基斯（George Mamalakis）开始对其进行采样。作为一位经验丰富的爵士钢琴家，他在演奏中积极使用虚拟乐器，乔治·玛玛拉基斯（George Mamalakis）熟悉重现“ E”动感细微声音所必需的采样深度。从2015年开始，在格莱美获奖制片人，唱片工程师，作曲家和唱片艺术家杰伊·格雷登（Jay Graydon）的指导下，乔治开始了长期精心研究“ E”电子钢琴的工作。为了帮助完成此过程，乔治发明了一种名为VERA的机械装置，该装置可以模仿人敲击每个琴键的动作，但是具有非常精确的动态效果。每个琴键都采样了18个力度层，每个音符的自然衰减都变成了完全静音。
自2017年以来，Orange Tree Samples已与George和Jay合作使用Kontakt平台制作可演奏的乐器。 Orange Tree Samples以其在示例库中的创新脚本而闻名，该库也不例外。我们添加了许多令人兴奋的选项来自定义电子钢琴的音色，包括乐器内置颤音的详细模型，使用自定义DSP的多个合唱模型以及灵活的模块化效果架。
-以96khz，24位记录的1,300个样本，总计7.0 GB（使用Kontakt的无损NCW格式压缩为3.26 GB）。
-Jay Graydon，George Mamalakis，Greg Schlaepfer和Chris Poehler创建了70多种可用于生产的工厂预设。

For Leeds Musical Instrument Rentals in North Hollywood, it was just a simple method of cataloging their instruments by stenciling letters on the cases of the electric pianos. One of their electric pianos in particular took notice by producers and session players, the one marked with the letter “E”. It wasn’t long before the “E” became one of the most highly sought-after electric pianos in the LA studio scene in the ’70s and ’80s, being featured in countless hit songs and albums. It got to the point where the “E” had to be scheduled months in advance for tracking dates.
Its sound is remarkable: the low end is clear and defined, and it has a sweet, bell-like tone in the register an octave above middle C. The inventor of the electric piano himself referred to the “E” as the best electric piano he had ever heard.
Until now, the “E” model electric piano has never been sampled before.
Determined to share its beautiful, pristine tone, George Mamalakis, the owner of the “E” electric piano, began sampling it. As a seasoned Jazz pianist who actively uses virtual instruments in his performance setup, George Mamalakis is well-acquainted with the depth of sampling necessary to recreate the dynamic, nuanced sound of the “E”. Beginning in 2015, with the guidance of Jay Graydon, Grammy award winning producer, recording engineer, composer, and recording artist, George began the long undertaking of meticulously sampling the “E” electric piano. To assist in the process, George invented a mechanical device which he named VERA, which is able to mimic the human motion of striking each key, but at very precise dynamics. Each key was sampled with 18 velocity layers, with each note’s natural decay into complete silence.
Since 2017, Orange Tree Samples has been working with George and Jay to produce the playable instrument using the Kontakt platform. Orange Tree Samples is known for their innovative scripting in sample libraries, and this library is no exception. We added a lot of exciting options to customize the tone of the electric piano, including a detailed model of the instrument’s built-in tremolo, several chorus models that use custom DSP, and a flexible modular effects rack.
We’re excited to present the resulting virtual recreation of the instrument, The Famous E Electric Piano, so that you too can enjoy the experience of playing the “E” electric piano.
