Tine-based Electric Piano Libraries for the Korg Kronos

EXs-40 Mark I (1970)

Stacks Image 2532
The electro-mechanical piano, upon which this sample-set is based, was manufactured in the first week of 1970, making it one of the first pianos to use the tapered Torrington tines. The Purgatory Creek Soundware Mark I was deeply sampled at 18 velocity levels recorded for the full duration, so you will hear neither loops nor artificial envelope decays. The library takes up 928 MB of the SSD but only 34 MB of RAM thanks to disk streaming. Eleven programs are provided.

This library is available for free at the Korg Web Store.

EXs-41 Mark V (1984)

Stacks Image 2547
The Mark V piano, introduced in 1984, was the last revision of the famous electric piano produced by the original Rhodes Company. It included many enhancements that resulted in a truly excellent instrument. The Purgatory Creek Soundware Mark V was sampled at 19 velocity levels for full duration, providing an accurate sound with no artificial decay envelopes or sample loops. It occupies 886 MB of disk but only requires 38 MB RAM.

Note: if you downloaded the original Purgatory Creek Mark V (version 1) for the Korg Kronos, it is recommended that you use this sample set instead. It includes better tuning, a slightly improved key-mapping and additional programs with enhanced dynamics and playability. The original programs are also included. Twelve programs are included.

EXs-140 Mark I (1975)

Stacks Image 1017
The electro-mechanical piano, upon which this sample-set is based, was manufactured in 1975, a year considered by some to be the golden era for this instrument. It featured the coveted Torrington tines. The Purgatory Creek Soundware Mark I (1975) was deeply sampled at 17 velocity levels recorded for the full duration, so you will hear neither loops nor artificial envelope decays. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled and eight velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.

The sample-set requires 1.8GB of RAM or 53MB using virtual memory. 25 programs are provided.

EXs-141 Mark II (1980)

Stacks Image 1068
The Mark II piano was noted for its modular action and Schaller tines, which give it a different sound than the earlier models. The Purgatory Creek Soundware Mark II (1980) was sampled at 13 velocity levels for full duration, providing an accurate sound with no artificial decay envelopes or sample loops. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled and eight velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.
The library requires 1.9GB of RAM or 48MB using virtual memory. 23 programs are included.

EXs-142 Mark II (1984)

Stacks Image 1048
This electro-mechanical tine based piano was manufactured in 1984, making it one of the last of the Mark II line. The Schaller tines give it a sound distinct from earlier pianos that used the Torrington or Raymac tines. The Purgatory Creek Soundware Mark II (1984) was deeply sampled at 18 velocity levels recorded for the full duration, so you will hear neither loops nor artificial envelope decays. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled and eight velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.

The library requires 1.7GB of RAM or 46MB using virtual memory. 21 programs are included.

EXs-154 Sparkletop

Stacks Image 4774
The electro-mechanical piano, upon which this sample-set is based, was manufactured in 1965. Unique to the Sparkletop series are traditional felt hammer heads (vs. neoprene tips on later models) and the Raymac tines. The Purgatory Creek Soundware Sparkletop was deeply sampled at 14 velocity levels recorded for the full duration, so you will hear neither loops nor artificial envelope decays. Nearly every note of the piano was sampled and seven velocity layers of note-off release samples are included.

The sample-set requires 1.9GB of RAM or 58MB using virtual memory.
