Plucked Electric Piano Virtual Instrument
The Klaviphon is a plucked electric piano manufactured in the '60s in the Czech Republic.
Its sound is generated by reeds plucked by wooden hammers.
The sound on lower octaves is classically reed-based.
On the upper register, the timbre turns into a Kalimba-like sound, due to the nature of the hammer-hit direction (from bottom to top on the reed-edge).
There's no other Electric Piano like this one, and it's never been recreated into a virtual instrument, until now.
A rare piece specially made for electric piano collectors.
Virtual Restoration of An Almost-Extinct Electric Piano
The Czech Klaviphon is almost extinct.
No parts can be found online and just a few of them are still alive.
This is why Sampleson wanted to make a virtual version of it, to keep its unique sound for further generations of musicians.
KLAVEE was built upon Spectral Modeling, a technique that assures perfect tone matching with the original instrument.
