Sonic Joy Awards 2016 – The Best Virtual Instruments & Effects

Spectrasonics Keyscape

10 years in the making, Keyscape is a treasure trove of sampled keyboards, with the trademark Spectrasonics stamp of quality, and tricks up the proverbial sleeve.

36 instruments that span the history of the keyboard in music. From Electric Harpsichord through Yamaha C7 Grand and Wing upright, Rhodes and Wurlitzer to CP70 and weird unknowns such as the Dolceola and the Chimeatron. Also some real eclectic niche instruments such as the Rhodes Piano Bass, and some specific Roland digital pianos.

As you might assume from a 77GB instrument (ouch!), Keyscape is about as all-encompassing as it gets. The sound is phenomenal, and you can tell that there has been a massive amount of attention paid to the small details that really bring an instrument to life.
