New Wurlitzer Piano Virtual Instrument, Wurlie

Acoustic Samples has introduced Wurlie, a new virtual instrument, based on the Wurlitzer 206A piano.

Here’s what they have to say about Wurlie:

Wurlie is a 64 keys Wurlitzer 206A piano, and as the Wurlitzer company named it, a “Student Electronic Piano”, and it has a build in amp and cabinet.

The 206A is a student model, and is very similar to a 200A except for its beige color and build in amp/speaker (it also did not come with a tremolo).  We recorded it 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.

We also included our common features like the multiple releases and also included our sympathetic resonance system (both pedal up and down).

You also have access to various commonly used effects and a full control over the midi parameters to make it fit to your keyboards response.

Here’s a preview of Wurlie in action:
