E-mu | Classic Keys
|Classic Keys is a musical instrument whose sounds are based on actual digital recordings of “real” instruments. In this way, Classic Keys is very similar to a sampling instrument. With Classic Keys, we have done the sampling for you and loaded it with a collection of the cleanest 16 bit sounds ever sampled.
Classic Keys contains a massive 8 Megabytes of the greatest keyboard sounds in the world. These superb samples have been selected from the Emulator III sound library and stored in ROMs for instant access. We have included everything you need to play and compose in a wide range of contemporary styles. You simply plug in and play.
But this is only the beginning. Classic Keys gives you the ability to literally take these sounds apart and reassemble them into an almost limitless number of entirely new sounds, combining parts of one sound with another or with any of a selection of digital waveforms also stored on ROM. For example, the attack of a flute can be faded out as a vibe tone is faded in, giving you a completely new sound! The monophonic and true stereo 16 bit samples are arranged into 512 preset locations, 256 of which are userprogrammable.
Classic Keys features 32 voice polyphony, allowing you to take full advantage of its layering capabilities (up to 8 sounds on each key) and its ability to respond multitimbrally to all 16 MIDI channels makes it ideally suited for multitrack sequencing and composing using a MIDI sequencer.
Other features include two studio-quality effects processors with 27 different effects, a user definable alternate tuning, and of course, an extensive MIDI implementation.

|Velocity||As with a piano, the harder you hit a key, the louder the sound, unlike most organs which always produce the same loudness no matter how hard you hit a key.||Aftertouch||Pressing a key after you activated it.
