J2 Rhodes Electric Piano Sampler Instrument
During my never-ending search for new sampled instruments to download, I came across a whole list of pianos at Bedroom Producers Blog. Among them was the outstanding jRhodes electric piano soundfont, by Learjeff. It’s a 1977 Rhodes Mark I Stage piano, and even though every key isn’t sampled, it’s got multiple velocity layers and sounds great…a lot of care was put into crafting this soundfont.
You can see pictures of the instrument and read about his process of recording the samples at his site, as well as download the original soundfont.
Of course, being an Ableton junkie, I wanted to port it over…so I made my own Sampler version, with various effects built into a rack. And with Jeff’s kind permission, I’m making it available for you fine folks!
