PC2 Classic Keys User’s Guide

The Classic Keys ROM option equips your PC2 with authentic reproductions of “vintage” keyboard sounds, which over the years have become essential to the modern keyboardist. The PC2 Classic Keys ROM contains samples of the following instruments: Hohner Clavinet (Treble Pickup Setting and Release Thump), Mellotron (Strings, Choir and Flute) ARP Solina String Ensemble, Hohner Pianet, Yamaha CP-80 Electric Grand Piano (Soft and Hard Strikes), and RMI Electra-Piano (Piano, Harpsi and Accenter). Classic Keys also makes use of the PC2 base ROM samples, and includes new “vintage” Rhodes, Wurlitzer and KB3 programs.

Each program in this set was created using high-quality audio samples as a starting point. The PC2’s synthesis engine allowed us to apply a variety of powerful sound-sculpting tools, which included velocity layers and crossfades, envelopes, FUNs and LFOs. The finishing touches were added with the PC2’s effects engine, which utilizes the same technology as our acclaimed KDFX (for the K2500/K2600 keyboards) and our award-winning KSP8 processor. Effects pedals, speaker cabinets and recording techniques have all been faithfully replicated, giving the Classic Keys programs a level of detail and realism never before achieved in any “vintage” keyboard emulation. We were able to precisely recreate the timbres from many live and studio recordings, which have helped define the “vintage” sound. Therefore, a number of the program names in Classic Keys have been derived from song titles and not keyboard model numbers.

We have included a detailed chart, which lists the controller assignments for each program and setup. If a program has been taken from a specific recording, the artist's name and song title have been provided as well. In addition to this information, we have also put together a brief description for each of the instruments sampled for Classic Keys.

KB3 Programs

Classic Keys includes four new KB3 programs which can be found in the KB3 bank at ID #s 001-004. The baseROM KB3 programs are each assigned to a bank select button. The Classic Keys programs are located in between the first two base ROM KB3 programs.

Hohner Clavinet

Most famous for having been used on Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition”, Rufus and Chaka Khan’s “Tell Me Something Good”, and on nearly all of Bob Marley’s hits, the Clavinet had originally been conceived by Ernst Zacharias of Hohner, to be the next stage in the evolution of the clavichord. The electro-mechanical keyboard so well known for its “funky 70’s sound”, had been intended to play Bach.

The Clavinet’s 60-note keyboard extended from F1 to E6, and its action was light to the touch. Under each key was a metallic string, which would be pressed down onto an “anvil” when the key was struck. The string would vibrate as long as it remained in contact with the anvil, and was dampened immediately upon key release. Two sets of magnetic pick-ups, which resembled the “treble” and “rhythm” pickups on an electric guitar, produced an electrical signal, which was fed to the output of the instrument.

The Model C, introduced in 1968, and the more popular Model D6, introduced in 1971, were the two most widely used versions. The D6 featured a series of six rocker switches, which controlled tone and pick-up selection. Labeled “Brilliant”, “Treble”, “Medium”, and “Soft”, the first four switches were connected to a series of band-pass filters. The next two switches enabled each of the pick-ups. Both could be selected, with the choice of them being in or out of phase. The D6 also featured a sliding “mute” lever, which controlled how fast a held note would decay.

Classic Keys features samples of the “treble” pick-up along with a “release thump”, while the PC2 base ROM already contains samples of the “rhythm” pick-up. Many of the Clavinet programs in Classic Keys were designed to imitate the D6’s various switch combinations, making use of the PC2’s own MIDI sliders and switches.

ARP Solina String Ensemble

The Solina String Ensemble, built for ARP by the Dutch organ manufacturer, Eminent, was the most well known string synthesizer of the mid-seventies, amid a field of similar, less successful competitors. Its distinctive string sound has appeared on a wide variety of recordings, having been used by Herbie Hancock, The Band, Vangelis, Pink Floyd, Parliament/Funkadelic, New Order, and many other well-known artists. Housed in a sleek wood enclosure, the Solina was capable of producing haunting, ethereal strings in the upper register, and lush pads in the lower register.

The String Ensemble was not a true polyphonic synthesizer, and employed a “divide down” single oscillator (common in electronic organs) to generate a polyphonic saw wave. All of its voices were fed into a single envelope generator which afforded the user control over attack (labeled Crescendo) and release (labeled Sustain). A button labeled, Modulation, enabled the famous “Bucket Brigade” chorus circuit, which added to the warm quality of the Solina’s sound. Many of the String Ensemble programs in Classic Keys use the PC2’s MIDI sliders and switches to emulate the Solina’s front panel controls.

The Mellotron

Also famous for its string sound, the Mellotron, later renamed the Novatron, was manufactured in the U.K., by Streetly Electronics, from 1962-1986. A predecessor to the modern digital sampler, the Mellotron used strips of analog tape, one for each key, to reproduce actual recorded sounds. Every key had its own corresponding motor and tape head, which were engaged when the key was depressed. When the key was released, the tape was rewound. A new note on the same key could not be triggered until the tape had completely finished rewinding. The tapes used were not looped, and each sound had a fixed length of eight seconds. In most cases, there were at least three tracks on each tape, in succession, and the user was able to select one of these “presets”. The Mark II (produced 1964-1967) and later the M400 (produced 1970-1986) were the most widely used models. The Mark II was equipped with dual 35 note keyboards, with the one on the left designated to play rhythms and fills, and the one on the right to play “lead”. The left manual and “rhythm section” were dropped after the mark II. The M400, by far the biggest seller, featured a single 35-note keyboard, and was housed in a distinctive white cabinet.

While cumbersome, and often plagued by mechanical difficulties, the Mellotron was a breakthrough in its day, providing reproductions of real acoustic sounds, free of any polyphony constraints, other than the number of notes one could physically play. Although intended to imitate other timbres, the Mellotron had an identifiable warm sound of its own, and blended effectively with other instruments in a mix.

Made famous first by The Beatles (flutes on Strawberry Fields), and later by The Moody Blues, David Bowie and Led Zeppelin, the Mellotron was featured on numerous recordings from the late sixties through the seventies. Its sound has often been associated with progressive rock, as it was used extensively by bands like Yes, Genesis, and King Crimson.

Classic Keys features the three most popular Mellotron sounds: strings, flute and choir. Each sample has been meticulously tuned and looped. We felt that it was appropriate to eliminate the eight second limit, along with the delayed attack (waiting for the heads and motor to engage) in order to make the sounds more playable. Also, most of the Mellotron programs in Classic Keys are touch sensitive, another departure from the original. Our goal was to maximize the playability of the sounds, without compromising their authenticity.

Hohner Pianet

Although featured prominently in a number of classic rock songs by The Beatles, Three Dog Night, The Zombies and others, the Hohner Pianet remains a lesser-known instrument, its sound having often been mistakenly attributed to the Wurlitzer.

Produced from c.1962-1980 in various console models, the Pianet series differed from the Rhodes and Wurlitzer in a few important areas. Sound was produced by metal reeds, which were plucked by a set of adhesive pads. Also distinguishing the Pianet, was the absence of a sustain pedal.

Note: Hohner also manufactured the much more rare Electra-Piano (not to be confused with the RMI ElectraPiano) which featured an enclosure resembling that of an upright piano. Reported to have a hammer mechanism very much like the one found in the Rhodes, the Hohner Electra-Piano featured a built-in amp and four speakers. Led Zeppelin made this sound famous, employing it in a number of hits. Using our Pianet samples and bit of processing, we were able to craft some realistic imitations of the Hohner Electra-Piano, and we’ve included them in the Pianet section of Classic Keys.

Yamaha CP-80

Known commonly as the “electric grand”, the CP-80 (88 notes), along with it’s smaller counterpart, the CP-70 (76 notes), was the product of clever engineering combined with traditional piano-making craftsmanship. Inside the CP-80, are the basic workings of a real acoustic piano, which have been altered to fit into a smaller enclosure. On the outside, the CP-80 looks like a “grand” version of the Rhodes, covered in tolex, with the top portion extending in the rear to accommodate the piano harp inside. Up until the mid-1980’s, when sampled pianos became available, the CP-70/80 was the only instrument capable of providing a decent substitute for a real piano. While it served this purpose well, the CP-70/80 had some unique features, which allowed it to have its own very distinct sound when desired.

With single strings on the lower notes, and double strings on the rest, the CP-70/80 included a modified Yamaha grand piano action and employed piezo-electric transducers in lieu of pickups. The original CP series featured bass and treble tone controls and a tremolo circuit. Later, seven bands of EQ, balanced outputs and MIDI capabilities were added (CP-70/80B and M models). Often used with chorus and compression effects, the CP-80 was known for having more “punch” than an acoustic piano. Production began in 1977 and ended in 1987.

RMI Electra-Piano

Built by Rocky Mount Instruments, a division of the Allen Organ Company, from 1967-1980, the RMI Electra-Piano is the one electric piano represented in Classic Keys, which did not produce sound by electro-mechanical means. With an electronic tone-generator for each note, un-weighted plastic keys, which were not touch-sensitive, and a set of “stops” for sound selection, the RMI more closely resembled an organ than anything else. Both sustain and volume pedals were included with the unit. Most were black tolex-covered consoles with 61 (later 68) keys, and rested on a set of metal legs.

There were five stops on the RMI, which controlled the tone: Piano, Piano PP, Harpsi, Harpsi PP, and Lute. There were two additional stops; Accenter, which added in an attack “thump” as well as Organ Mode, which extended the decay of held notes.

Though not capable of producing a realistic piano sound, the RMI did provide a viable “electric harpsichord/clavichord” tone. In addition, the overall sound of the RMI was warm, yet manageable, and lent itself nicely to the use of effects processors and pedals. The RMI appeared on a variety of albums in the early and mid seventies, and was featured prominently in the music of the progressive rock bands Genesis and Yes.

Controller Assignments

Here are a few of the guidelines which were used in determining control and slider assignments for the programs in Classic Keys. These general rules should make it relatively easy to adjust the most basic program settings when first scrolling and playing through the complete set of sounds. Keep in mind that these are general rules, and there will be some exceptions. You can refer to the table which we have provided, to view the complete controller assignment information for each program. For those using the PC2R, programs will respond to MIDI messages sent on the corresponding MIDI channels for each slider or controller listed below.

ModWheel

Controls tremolo depth on most electric piano programs, controls envelope shape

 

on most ARP programs, and doubles as a "wah" controller on any "wah" programs,

 

for those users who do not have or use the Continuous Controller pedal.

Slider A (MIDI 91)

Controls FX A wet/dry.

Slider B (MIDI 93)

Controls FX B wet/dry. (Note: Most programs in Classic Keys over-ride this control

 

in order to allow the program output to go through FX A and then into FX B in

 

series, as a chain.

Slider C (Data/MIDI 06)

Controls brightness (lopass or bandpass filter freq.) on many programs. Also used

 

to control the volume of certain layers within a program.

Slider D (MIDI 13)

Controls filter resonance on many programs. Controls tremolo, phaser, and LFO

 

rates. Also used to control the volume of certain layers within a program.

Sw2 (MIDI 09)

This switch is located just below the "Octave Shift" button, to the right of the MIDI

 

sliders. Used sparingly - consult Controller Assignment Table.

Sw3 (MIDI 12)

Located directly under Sw2. Used sparingly - consult Controller Assignment Table.

Sw5 (MIDI 29)

Located just above the modwheel. Used to enable layers on many programs. Also

 

used to enable certain effects such as phaser or chorus, when they are generated in

 

the synth engine (not the effects engine).

FtSw 1 (MIDI 64/Sustain)

Functions as a sustain pedal on almost all programs. Enables synth effect on a select

 

few.

CC Pedal 2 (MIDI 04/Foot)

Functions as a "wah" pedal on all of the "wah" programs. This pedal must be

 

plugged into the jack labeled "Continuous 2".
