EVP88 Architecture and Features

EVP88’s piano synthesis engine uses component modeling techniques to generate sounds. It is designed solely for the ultrarealistic simulation of electric pianos, and offers smooth dynamics and scaling over the entire 88-key range. Use of component modeling ensures that you will never hear any abrupt changes between samples, nor will you hear any sample looping or filtering effects during the decay phase of notes.

EVP88’s component modeling engine also simulates the physical characteristics of the original instruments. This includes the movement of the electric piano reeds, tines, and tone bars in the (electric and magnetic) fields of the pickups. It also emulates the ringing, smacking, and bell-like transients of the attack phase, as well as the hammer action and damper noises of the original instruments.

An integrated effects processing section further enhances the EVP88’s sonic capabilities, providing a number of classic effects that are commonly used with electric piano sounds. The included equalizer, overdrive, stereo phaser, stereo tremolo, and stereo chorus effects are specifically designed, adapted, and optimized for the EVP88.
