Ultimate Rhodes Sounds?

Unread post by progress88 » Tue Sep 03, 2019 2:07 am

I heard some classic Rhodes sounds that I thought were absolutely fantastic. However, they are virtual instruments. Specifically the Spectronics Keyscapes Collector Keyboards - LA Custom Rhodes. Does anyone know any sounds for the MODX/Montage or Motif XF that have that warm lush sound? Any suggestions on how to program that myself would also be appreciated.

Wow..no responses? Okay, I'll rephrase the question.

What is the best Rhodes sounds for the MODX in your opinion? Keyboardwaves, Neosoul Suitcase, etc....

Just so you have an answer :)

I'm not a huge fan of AWM EPs other than the fantastic SkiRhodes on the EX5 and its FDSP EP modelling engine, which still holds its own 20 years on.

But I do like the "Early 80s DiscoPop" in the Montage presets. It's quite dynamic with a good amount of bite/growl when you dig in.

But the modelled EPs in My Korg Kronos and in Pianoteq knock the spots off of it....

Same goes for my Vox Continental (as they are the Kronos ones).

as an answer to your revised question.

Anotherscott, I thought that collection sounded pretty good. Thanks for sharing that link, I never heard of that company before.
Any other suggestions is always appreciated. :)
