‘Missing Keys‘: Rhodes is asking you to soundtrack a short film with our new ‘V8’ software. One elite entry will win a Rhodes MK8 piano.
Rhodes is proud to unveil the first virtual instrument to carry its name: The Rhodes V8 – and is offering you the chance to get to know this deeply multi-sampled version of the acclaimed MK8 Electric Piano during a 45 day free trial.
To mark the ‘V8’ release, Rhodes has made a new short film entitled ‘Missing Keys’ featuring James Smith of the Mercury Prize nominated band, Yard Act – and we want YOU to submit a track to soundtrack it, utilising the new Rhodes V8 plugin.
The winning track, judged by James Blake and Yard Act’s James Smith, will remain on the film as the final soundtrack.
UNLOCK THE RHODES V8 FREE TRIAL
Step one: Complete the above form, unlocking your download of the Rhodes V8 and wav file of the vocal performed by Yard Act’s James Smith.
Step two: Follow the installation instructions to set up the Rhodes V8 in your DAW.
Step three: Import the wav file of the vocal to your DAW. Set the tempo to 70 or 140 BPM.
