To celebrate, many of Soniccouture's products are on sale for 50% off for the rest of July through Native Instruments (including The Canterbury Suitcase Rhodes sample library):

WHOA NELLIE!

I was kicking myself for missing the black friday sale on the Suitcase--this is great!

And that collection...nice! 84% off!

If Iím not mistaken, most of their libraries were NKS compatible since a while now.

Hmm anything in that collection worth having beyond the Canterbury Rhodes for typical gigging?

Thanks, Fleer. I probably should have worded that "entirely NKS compatible" as NI did.

Edit: I fixed the title.

Best,

Geoff

None of the rest of it is a gigging keyboard player's bread and butter; but if you're covering Imogen Heap, the Box of Tricks could be a lifesaver. Similarly, Vibraphone could help a jazz keyboardist cover Lionel Hampton. As always, YMMV.

Granted, most of the titles will probably be of more use to composers.

Best,

Geoff

I don't see the Hammersmith Pro on sale in the products list. That's a shame if true (if I somehow missed it). My favorite sampled piano and I have a lot of them.

Thinking about the Canterbury Rhodes. Highly rated though I do not do a lot of Rhodes might be nice to have.

Canterbury Rhodes is well worth the full price. It's a steal at half.

No !
I too hoped for more keys from SC Vintage department,- "Broken Wurli", "EP 73 deconstructed" and "Clav".
"Ondes" & "Novachord" are already special even they sound great.
"Canterbury Rhodes" sounds excellent, but thatīs not enough when the bundle is EUR 299,- and being cluttered w/ "cinematic" and percussion instruments.
Canterbury Rhodes for 50% off is tempting though.

Iíd downloaded the demo of Lounge Lizard which is on sale and have been messing around with it... when suddenly on sale for around the same price comes Canterbury Rhodes! Not sure if it was always playable on the free Kontakt Player, but since this is now the case, I think this is the better deal, all-Ďround. Something about modelling that just doesnít work for me.
