Spectral modeled Wurli
The first Spectral Modeled Wurlitzer based on real samples entirely rebuilt by modeling. Offering the real sound and feel of a Wurlitzer in just 30MB.
Spectral Modeled Wurlitzer
Reed200 is our second spectral modeled instrument. We can say it's all that we dreamed about. Clean and responsive timbre made out of the real Wurlitzer. Stacking up to 600 pure sinewaves, we achieved a perfect and accurate timbre reproducing the sound that a Wurli generates on the line output. (Also we included a cabinet and drive emulator)
As in our Markus 88, we did most of the jobs manually. Despite the deep spectrum analysis we used to decode the timbre DNA, we focused on recreating the real feel of pushing down a key in a real Wurlitzer.

THE WURLITZER TIMBRE RECREATION
We discovered the Wurlitzer timbre is kind of unique. After doing our first modeled electric piano, Markus 88, we can tell Wurlitzer has some characteristics on the spectrum that makes it more dirty and punchy than a Rhodes.
What we've learned is that the main difference between Rhodes and Wurli is the perfect octaves harmonics (meaning 12 semitones up, 24, 36, 48, etc). Envelope for those partials are quite louder than in a Rhodes and this is one of the main secrets of Wurli timbre
You can play a bit with this characteristic with our "Color" slider on our main interface.
What exactly is Spectral modeling?
Ever sound in nature can be split into simple sinewaves. From thunder to a trumpet. Spectral modeling is the technique to analyze and recreate sinewaves spectra to recreate the exact timbre and behavior of an instrument.
According to Julius O. Smith (Standford) Spectral modeling provides a sound representation much closer to the perception of sound by the brain because your ear and brain are in fact spectral decoders.You can read more anout Spectral Modeling here.
