SonicCouture Broken Wurli v1.1 KONTAKT
Why did we sample a Broken Wurlitzer 200A electric piano? We were asking around producers we know, to see if anyone had any junky, but cool sounding old keyboards; Neil Davidge, producer for Massive Attack, said "..erm, I have an old Wurlizer piano with a dodgy distorting speaker that sounds great". So, we borrowed it, and he was right, it did sound really great.
The left hand speaker breaks up and sounds absolutely savage, while the right hand speaker does the expected 'clean' (but lo-fi) sound. We wanted to sample it, so we conducted some experiments with just recording single notes from the speaker with a microphone, and it sounded very cool - giving the iconic Wurlizter tone some real drive and bite.
GROWLING AND SNARLING OR WARM AND MELLOW
Broken Wurli is a totally unique electric piano instrument - using the 3 dials ( below) on the front panel you can mix any sound you need; from classic, clean line out, to growling distortion and buzzing chords.
The 3 round-robin layers make the playing experience feel very real - this is the first sampled electric piano we have played that really feels physical and mechanical.
