In this Synth Expert review, courtesy of Pro Tools Expert, James Ivey takes a look and a listen to the Acoustic Samples Wurlie virtual instrument. Using audio examples he takes you through the controls of this VI and shows you how to take control and make the tone your own.
Wurlie is a 64 keys Wurlitzer 206A piano, and as the Wurlitzer company named it, a "Student Electronic Piano".
The 206A is a student model, and is very similar to a 200A except for its beige color and built in amp/speaker (it also did not come with a tremolo). It was designed to be paired with a 206, which is the teacher model and they were mainly used in conservatories. The teacher had a headphone and microphone to be able to listen to each student individually and talk to them without others hearing them.
Acoustic Samples sampled the original instrument both from the direct output using a state of the art DI (Universal Audio Solo 610) and also using a pair of microphones right above the keys next to where the head of a player would be. Also included are common features like the multiple releases along with the Acoustic Samples sympathetic resonance system (both pedal up and down). Users also have access to various commonly used effects and a full control over the midi parameters to make it fit to your keyboards response.
