For the first time, the hallowed sound and feel of the acclaimed Rhodes MK8 electric piano at your fingertips in any recording studio or live performance. The V8 is a deeply multi-sampled and modelled, hyper-realistic version of the Rhodes MK8, capturing all the nuance and character of the flagship electric piano. The only official software to carry the Rhodes name, the V8 is the final destination for musicians looking to augment their productions with the timeless beauty of ‘The True Rhodes Sound’.
For audio voyagers that seek ultimate control, Rhodes has created the V8 Pro Edition, expanding the V8’s vast sonic palette, tweakability and nuance – offering a forensic level of control and customisation. For the V8 Pro Edition, Rhodes has deeply modelled the intimate behaviour of the MK8 FX board – featuring a VCA Compressor and Phaser paired with Bucket-Brigade Chorus and Delay.
In addition to the V8 specifications, the V8 Pro also includes:
The V8 is a hyper-realistic re-creation of the Rhodes MK8 electric piano and the first official plug-in by Rhodes.
Encompassing 30,000 samples directly sampled from Rhodes’ flagship MK8 piano, including up to 127 velocity layers, 14 articulations and mechanical noise – the V8 additionally employs a hyper-real modelling engine, providing a level of sonic authenticity never before heard in any other electric piano virtual instrument.
The ‘Main’ view is the place to make broad tone-shaping adjustments to the V8’s pre-amp board. The V8 pre-amp and FX (Pro-edition only) appear in the exact MK8 configuration – making it effortless to dial-in sounds. Taking centre stage is the stereo Vari-Pan effect, featuring four waveforms.
The ‘Detail’ view offers deep adjustments to tuning and timbre, with the option to add ‘mechanical’ and ‘pedal’ noise. In addition, you can find an array of amp/cab simulations here, such as the ‘Rhodes® ’79 Suitcase’ and ‘Twin Tube’ Combo, augmented by ‘condenser’ and ‘dynamic’ microphone choices. Also, additional tone-sculpting options for Profile EQ and FX wait for you here.
