The NEW Neo-Soul Keys® Version 4.0 for UVI Workstation represents the newest version of what is said to be the best electric piano library ever made. Neo-Soul Keys 4.0 for UVI boasts a brand new architecture and a new era for electric piano libraries. Neo-Soul Keys Version 4 boasts a whopping 50 new electric pianos, along with some very cleaver scripting techniques that will allow one individual electric piano to have over 24 timbres that change with velocity.


The sound of Neo-Soul Keys is extremely warm and expressive. You have the ability to completely purge all of the mechanical effects in order to save CPU and RAM. You also have the ability to customize each and every mechanical effect and independently adjust the velocity curve, velocity amount, and velocity sensitivity, which lends to an infinite amount of control when molding and crafting your own sound. When you combine an already and vintage sample of an EP and combine it with UVI’s stellar effects and a very high level of scripting techniques, you get the best electric piano library ever made!

Come on man, not another electric piano sound....

When we first embarked on the incredible task of creating another electric piano library, we waited years for the right suitcase to sample. With so many incredible options out there, we narrowed our focus on one main goal and that was REALISM. We wanted to give you the most authentic and organic experience possible. When you bang down on the keys, we wanted you to hear and feel all of the grit, grunge, clank, and thud of a real electromechanical instrument. The second thing we wanted to do was to make sure that the library had BARK. In our opinion, we felt there was still a little room left for another electric piano sound that would offer the extra grit and silkiness at the same time. One thing to note though: Don’t just take the stock sounds alone. There are so many knobs and effects to tweak that you can pretty much create any type of EP  sound that you want with our library.

One of musicians we patterned our sound after was non other than George Duke and before he passed away (RIP), he had some things to say about what he uses on the road and for gigs. Here is what he said about our software:


I also incorporated one called [Gospel Musicians] Neo-Soul Suitcase, because that has a little more grit and meat on it for certain types of sounds. There’s another that’s pretty smooth, and it’s also a Scarbee thing but it’s toned down; it doesn’t have a lot of attack. As a matter a fact, I’m using that sound on “Brazilian Love Affair.” When I go into playing more funk, I might use Neo-Soul Keys, which has a lot of attack....” (Keyboard Magazine, Aug. 2013)
