A super piano "n o-vintage" really unique in its kind !!!!!

The Zarenbourg is a superb instrument, which corresponds to a very particular "audience". High-end, design, clearly oriented vintage piano sounds, in the design spirit of a wurlitzer 200a of the 21st century.

The instrument is very well finished, the hood and control panel are made of aluminum, the wood base (very thick), the keyboard is a fatar (TP100LR), the Cosmo knobs, the stainless steel feet are removable, Integrated listening system includes a subwoofer giving under the beast and is of high quality but not very powerful (note that even thoroughly, no vibration). The beast weighs 38kg.

3 sound engines: Advanced physical modeling for the Rhodes and Wurlitzer, FM synthesis for the FM piano, sampling for the grand piano, the CP80, the clavinet, the orchestral layer (marginal).

Good points :

-the sound !!!!!!!

-the sounds of Rhodes are splendid, a super dynamic. (There are 2, one looks like a MK1 glossy, the other a newer, brighter version). Really beautiful, and with the equalizer and effects we arrive at a variety of extraordinary sounds.

- the sound of the wurlizter, excellent. It really feels like being on a 200A revisited way 21st century, maintenance / risk of breakage of reeds less

- the CP80 wawwwww. Ditto for the FM piano, this is the real FM synthesis! Clavinet super, but with a touch as heavy, not easy ...

- the 7 stackable effects, magnificent! Chorus, flanger, phaser, wahwah, equalizer (4 bands), overdrive, echo / reverb

- Plug and play simplicity, including native keyboard recognition via USB 2. This makes the zarenbourg a beautiful master keyboard.

-the keyboard, of high quality. Attention, it is firm.

- the integrated amplification of quality and especially the crossover allowing to inject by jack input a line input, but also guitar, micro (the sensitivity and the level of input are adjustable in front.

- the presence of a S / PDIF coaxial output, very practical digital (it leaves me a line input for a keyboard in my sound card 6i6)

- you can stack 2 sounds

Negative points :

-weight (38kg) if you want to transport it often.

-the power of the integrated listening system, ample enough to play at home, but not enough for a small stage or bar.

-the great piano, a steinway D, has a peculiar hue. I like it, but it takes a time of adaptation (dynamic).

- Warning: the PC / MAC sounds editing software is NOT BOOKed with the beast, it has not been published to date: vaporware or not, we will see
-> hence the 4/5 to "manufacture"
The CD included with the firmware and sounds to flasher if needed, the "waldorf edition" software suite which is actually made up of 3 VSTi plugins available with the beast (keys to be requested by email), manuals in English and German, and wallpapers of which, I grant you, we do not have much to f ...

- if you go out either in line or in s / pdif, it is possible to cut the integrated amplification only by putting a jack in the headphone output on the front. Not possible to cut by firmware.

- not on the feet to support many disassembly / reassembly, their threading makes a little cheap, but it is in stainless steel, then ...

- he toasted my budget "music" for a while :)

In conclusion: a magnificent instrument, not generalist, but really unusual. For my part, I find it sensational. At least, I'm sure I would not have to take the breakage of tines like I had years ago with my rhodes MK1.

Beautiful piano sounds vintage. The emulation of the CP 80 is impressive, the same for the Rhodes and Wurlitzer.
The piano Steinway superb.
The sustain of the sounds of the acoustic piano or cp80 is very beautiful: there is a beautiful and long resonance full and rich in harmonics - unlike many other emulations where there is much more tripling after the attack. ..
The highly convincing and expressive orchestral sound - play the theme "Pirates of the Caribbean" and you think yourself in front of the movie! Sound of fluffy strings, beautiful stereo with precise attack, a little more dynamic and brass appear, in treble the woods more.
The sound in general is enveloping, we bathe in it. The system 2.1 high-end.
The instrument is very classy, ??plush with a beautiful look. Fatar keyboard high-end pretty firm.
One can work the sounds a bit like a synth with all the effects on board, and by playing on the layers, some settings (volume adjustment resonance of harmonic breath linked to the sustain pedal, for example)
A real musical instrument very endearing.
In black with the limited series, it is even more beautiful !!
