Keys
What exactly is KEYS?

We wanted to make a plugin that has all the sounds from our favorite key instruments we use for Cymatics samples.

Our goal was NO filler sounds - we only included sounds that we personally would want to use every day. 100+ presets of pure gold!

There is an advanced section where you can completely customize your sounds with reverb, fx, resampling, half speed, reverse, filters, and other powerful sound design tools for making your own sounds from scratch.

KEYS is included with Zodiac Vol 2 as a free bonus for the 2500 people who purchase the pack, but will also be available for purchase on its own for $100

Cymatics has been known for some of the best presets in the music industry for years, and KEYS is no different.

We included tons of go-to presets for every style of music. The preset categories are Classics, Piano, E-Piano, Lofi, Reverse, Synth, World, and more!

Just to name a few, you can expect to hear sounds like:

  • Classic Rhodes and Wurly e-pianos
  • Beautiful live recorded grand pianos
  • Vintage synthesizers
  • Unique instruments like kalimbas & log drums

We also plan on releasing KEYS preset expansions for free in the future.

Powerful sound design capabilities

KEYS isn’t just another basic sampler - we included an advanced section where you can completely customize your sounds with reverb, fx, resampling, half speed, reverse, filters, and other powerful sound design tools for making your own sounds from scratch.

The included FX are modeled after vintage hardware, including chorus, reverb, pitch movement, tremolo, and more.

We also built the resampler and other features from Origin into KEYS for when you want to get that vintage / lofi sound.

How were the soundsources created?

We recorded every sound from scratch - Pianos, Rhodes, vintage synths, and other collected world instruments. Every sound was recorded with multiple velocity layers to recreate the experience of using these instruments in real life.

To go a step further, we layered instruments together to create unique, never heard before heard sounds.

A good example is this soundsource made by layering a kalimba, log drum (an african tonal drum), and a sine wave:
